Portia de Rossi has accused Steven Seagal of exposing himself to her.
The actress on Wednesday posted to her personal Twitter account that, while auditioning for a role in a film starring Seagal, the actor “told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants.”
De Rossi then said that she called her agent who was “unfazed” and replied, “Well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”
Seagal has previously been accused of misconduct and harassment, including allegations by: former actress and Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero, who claims the actor invited her to audition in his private home and conducted the audition in a silk kimono; actress Rae Dawn Chong, who claims that sometime in 1989-90, she was sent by her agent to Seagal’s hotel for a 9:30 p.m. audition, during which he exposed himself; and Juliana Margulies, who similarly claims she met with the actor in a private room where he harassed her and was armed with a gun.
A request for comment from de Rossi was not immediately returned.
After de Rossi spoke out, wife Ellen DeGeneres took to Twitter to say, “I’m proud of my wife.”
