Portia De Rossi alleges sexual harassment by Steven Seagal during audition

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

Actor Portia de Rossi alleged in a tweet that Steven Seagal once unzipped his trousers in front of her. Recalling the ordeal with Seagal, in an interview on Sirius XM's Just Jenny, Marguiles said that she was asked by a female casting agent to visit the Under Siege star on the pretext of discussing some scenes from the audition.

De Rossi's wife, Ellen DeGeneres, publicly declared her support for the actress.

Last week, Julianna Margulies said she was intimidated by Steven Seagal, who showed her a gun in a hotel room.

Margulies, who later shot to fame for her role in 1990s hit series "ER" and more recently in "The Good Wife", said a female casting director told her Seagal wanted to go over a scene with her in his NY hotel room at night. It also hints at premeditation if, in fact, her agent was aware Seagal meant to make the vulgar move. I don't know how I got out of that hotel room.

The final audition for the unknown project took place in Seagal's office. And I said, 'And I do not take subways late at night.' And she says, 'Don't worry, we will reimburse you.

Chrissy Teigen fails at boycotting Twitter's new update
Only five percent of users went above 140 characters during the test, and only 2 percent ever went north of 190 characters. Whilst one half of Twitter is seemingly celebrating the news, some have complained that they instead wanted an edit button.

Speaking on a U.S. radio show, she said: "When I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said, "Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o'clock at night". I do not have money for a cab.' And I did not. "And I'm here, a woman, '" Margulies recalled.

Margulies, 23 years at the time, said that when she arrived she found the actor alone."He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life", she told Sirius XM. And I got out of there unscathed ... I never was raped, and I never was harmed.

She added, "It always starts with, 'I'm a healer, I want to massage you.' I sort of squirmed my way out". "Unfazed, she replied, 'Well, I didn't know if he was your type'".

Actress-turned-journalist Lisa Guerrero also claimed that Seagal almost assaulted her.
