Steven Seagal allegedly unzipped his pants in front of Portia de Rossi inside his office during her final audition.

“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. I ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”” wrote Portia de Rossi on Twitter Thursday.

The sexual harassment accusation is the latest bomshell in Hollywood following the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey,

Ellen DeGeneres retweeted De Rossi’s revelation and expressed how proud she is of her wife.

But the sexual harassment against Steven Seagal is nothing new. Just last week, actress Julianna Marguiles revealed that she was cornered by the action star in his hotel room in 1989 for the movie ‘Out For Justice’.

“He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life,” she told Sirius XM radio. ‘I never was raped. And I never was harmed. And I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room … I sorta screamed my way out.’
