Portia de Rossi Claims Steven Seagal Exposed Himself to Her

Actress Portia de Rossi claimed Wednesday that action star Steven Seagal harassed her by unzipping his trousers during a private office audition.

Ellen DeGeneres, de Rossi's wife of nine years, tweeted she was "proud of" her wife for opening up about the alleged encounter.

Telling him she had been told there was no nudity, Seagal allegedly told her "there is off-camera nudity". "I got out of there unscathed", she said.

As previously reported, former Good Wife star Julianna Margulies also confessed that Seagal nearly raped her at gunpoint.

She says the next bombshell came when she ran out of the office and called her agent. "He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather trousers". I got to the hotel around 10.40pm and she wasn't there and he was alone and he made sure t hat I saw his gun.

Not only Marguiles, actress Lisa Guerrero also recently told the Los Angeles Times about her unpleasant encounter with Seagal when he greeted her and her female casting agent at his door "wearing nothing but a silky robe", adds the Vulture report.

'I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, "Oh, I don't do that".

Julianna Margulies last week recounted an unpleasant encounter with the 65-year-old former 1980s star, with whom she appeared in the 1991 movie "Out for Justice". Unfazed, she replied, "well, I didn't know if he was your type". "I said, 'isn't that illegal?"

And back in 2010, actress Jenny McCarthy claimed that Seagal once asked her to remove her clothes during an audition for that same movie, Under Siege 2. It always starts with "I am a healer". Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer-who now represents stars like Ratner-denied the claims, calling them "false, fabricated and defamatory".

"When I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said, 'Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o'clock at night, '" the actress explained on SiriusXM's Just Jenny on Friday.
