Portia de Rossi is adding Steven Seagal’s name to the growing list of sexual predators in Hollywood, accusing him of trying to expose himself to her during an audition.
In a tweet on Wednesday, de Rossi said that she was in a final audition in the actor’s office in which he “told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen, as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants.”
My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office. He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I️ ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”

She added that her agent was “unfazed” by the news, which reflects how common sexual harassment in the entertainment business has become.
De Rossi’s wife, Ellen DeGeneres, tweeted in support of her spouse after the news broke.
I’m proud of my wife. https://t.co/NABbOJoBrf

These are not the first allegations against Seagal, however, with Julianna Margulies accusing the actor last week of harassing her with a gun in a hotel room in the past.
Seagal has not yet responded to the allegations.
