Steven Seagal accused of harassment by Arrested Development actor Portia De Rossi

Actor Portia de Rossi alleged in a tweet that Steven Seagal once unzipped his trousers in front of her.

She alleges that during a film audition Mr Seagal told her "how important it was to have chemistry off-screen" before unzipping his pants. I️ ran out and called my agent. DeGeneres took to Twitter to respond to de Rossi's tweet with a supportive tweet of her own.

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

She revealed: "When I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said, 'Well, Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o'clock at night.' And I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, 'Oh, I do not do that".

Although Miami can record its best win of the season this week against No. 3 Notre Dame , so can TCU, which visits No. 5 Oklahoma. It would also help if nobody among Oklahoma, TCU, Miami and Wisconsin won their conference championship.

A similar claim was made by actor Rae Dawn Chong, who told The Wrap that Seagal wore only a bathrobe to a hotel audition in the 1980s and later allegedly exposed himself to her. Chong says that for several years after the incident, Seagal would leave "sex messages" on her answering machine.

The former Scandal actress said Seagal made the shocking move to find out if they had any chemistry. And I'm here, a woman.' I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn't there. I got out of there unscathed... And I said, 'And I don't take subways late at night.' She said 'Don't worry, we'll reimburse you. Jenny McCarthy alleged in an 1998 interview with Moveline that Seagal asked her to take off her dress during an audition, which Seagal denies. Following the audition, Guerrero's manager told her that Seagal was willing to offer her the lead role in the film if she attended a "private rehearsal" with him. "[He says] 'So, you were Playmate of the Year?' Then he said, 'Take off your dress.' I just started crying and said, 'Rent my Playboy video, you a-hole!' and ran out to the vehicle". Unfazed, she replied, "well, I didn't know if he was your type".

The actress is just one woman who has accused Seagal of sexual misconduct.
