Portia de Rossi Claims Steven Seagal Exposed Himself to Her

Ellen DeGeneres has spoken out in support of her wife, Portia de Rossi, after the actress accused Steven Seagal of sexual misconduct.

Actress Jenny McCarthy, who first accused Seagal in 1998, on Thursday revisited her encounter with the actor when auditioning for his 1995 movie "Under Siege 2" when he allegedly asked her twice to lower her dress. "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.

"I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life", she told Jenny Hutt on SiriusXM last Friday. And de Rossi discovered that her agent had betrayed her.

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

The allegations, which were shared by the Arrested Development actor on Twitter, follows similar claims of misconduct made against Seagal by three other women. After the audition, which otherwise went well, Guerrero says, she later got a call from her manager.

The final audition for the unknown project took place in Seagal's office. After she refused and ran to her auto, McCarthy said he followed her outside and told her not to tell anyone "or else". I do not have money for a cab.' And I did not.

"I had just turned 16 on this movie, and he said, 'You know, Katie, I've got girlfriends your age, '" Heigl recalled. I got out of there unscathed...

She said that Seagal looked surprised to see that she was accompanied by her casting director, but led them to another room where he insisted on sitting on an elevated throne while she recited lines from the scenes she had prepared.

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

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". It always starts with 'I'm a healer.
