Portia De Rossi is one of the latest celebrities to share her sexual assault story.
A star who is proclaimed to be the best bad-guy actor is now another Hollywood name that tops the list of suspects in a sexual assault allegation.
Steven Seagal, who's known for Hard To Kill, Marked For Death and Above The Law to name a few, is accused of sexual harassment by Arrested Development actress Portia de Rossi.
Portia shared her story on Twitter where she detailed that Steven told her "how important" off-screen chemistry was when she was auditioning for a movie. Steven allegedly began to unzip his pants where said she ran out of the room to her "unfazed" agent.
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.”— Portia de Rossi (@portiaderossi) November 8, 2017
Portia's longtime partner, Ellen De Generes, re-tweeted her wife's statement saying she's "proud."
I’m proud of my wife. https://t.co/NABbOJoBrf— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) November 9, 2017
Portia is just another name on the roll call of women who have accused Steven of inappropriate conduct.
The Good Wife actress, Julianna Margulies, told Sirius Radio just last week that Steven made inappropriate moves on her when she was 23, as well as intimidated her by showing her his gun. She told the radio that she arrived at his hotel room, but the female casting director who promised to be there was nowhere in sight.
“I got to the hotel around 10:40, and she wasn’t there. And he was alone and he made sure that I saw his gun, I had never seen a gun in real life,” she said. “I got out of there unscathed… I never was raped, and I never was harmed. I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room.”
