  • USA actor Steven Seagal accused of sexual harassment

Portia de Rossi spoke out on Wednesday about her experiences with Steven Seagal, alleging that he acted inappropriately while she was auditioning for one of his films.

She alleges that during a film audition Mr Seagal told her "how important it was to have chemistry off-screen" before unzipping his pants. "He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather trousers", she recalled. The then ran from the office and called her agent, who apparently seemed aware of what might happen.

Several other people criticised the reaction of Portia De Rossi's agent for her unfazed response.

Via Facebook, Ellen DeGeneres's wife shared a unusual and disturbing encounter she had with the martial artist.

Seagal's representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Former The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies said during a November 3 interview on the Just Jenny Show that Seagal "made sure that I saw his gun" during an audition in his hotel room. "I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn't there".

Julianna Margulies last week recounted an unpleasant encounter with the 65-year-old former 1980s star, with whom she appeared in the 1991 movie "Out for Justice".

De Rossi wrote: "My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office".

"I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, "Oh, I don't do that".

Breakfast at Tiffany's is based on the Truman Capote novella about a country girl who moves to NY and joins high society. The new Blue Box Cafe on the fourth floor of the Fifth Avenue store may help the brand recapture its buzz, too.

"He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life", Margulies said in an interview with SiriusXM. And I got out of there unscathed, ' I was never harmed'.

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. It always starts with "I am a healer".

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