Portia de Rossi says Steven Seagal 'unzipped his leather pants' during audition

Julianna Margulies Reveals Distressing Hotel Room Encounters With Harvey Weinstein and Stephen Seagal

Portia de Rossi, the former Ally McBeal actress and wife of chat queen Ellen DeGeneres, accused the former martial arts expert and blues musician over an undated audition for a Seagal movie in his office.

Last week, The Good Wife actor Julianna Margulies revealed that she was harassed by Seagal and Harvey Weinstein in separate encounters during the 1990s. "He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather trousers", De Rossi said on Twitter.

Ms DeGeneres shared Ms de Rossi's tweet with her 75 million followers on Thursday with the caption: "I am proud of my wife".

Representatives for Seagal have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment about the recent allegations.

The 51-year-old ER star said she had been called to Steven Seagal's hotel room late at night on the premise of running lines and that another woman would be in the room too. It also hints at premeditation if, in fact, her agent was aware Seagal meant to make the vulgar move.

Kevin Spacey accused in incident involving former Boston TV anchor relative
As the allegations against Spacey continued to surface, Unruh has shown her support for Rapp and the other victims on Twitter. Rapp said then-26-year-old Spacey was holding him down tightly, but he was able to get away and left the apartment.

'I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn't there. I don't travel. I don't have money for a cab.' And I didn't.

Portia tweeted the ordeal: 'My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office.

Margulies says, "I got to the hotel at 10.40 (pm), and she wasn't there". After she refused and ran to her auto, McCarthy said he followed her outside and told her not to tell anyone "or else". I had never seen a gun in real life. And I got out of there unscathed, ' I was never harmed'. It always starts with 'I'm a healer. "I want to massage you" and I sort of squirmed my way out". Unfazed, she replied, "well, I didn't know if he was your type".

The Australian star said she fled the scene and rushed to her agent. Margulies claimed that she had initially been told that a female casting director would be in attendance for the audition, but that when she arrived Seagal was alone.
