Portia de Rossi Says Steven Seagal Unzipped His Pants During Her Audition With Him

“He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen,” actress says


Portia de Rossi wrote on Twitter on Wednesday that Steven Seagal previously “unzipped” his pants during an audition with her.

“My final audition for a Steven Seagal movie took place in his office,” she wrote. “He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants.”

The “Ally McBeal” alum, who is married to Ellen DeGeneres, said this led her to run out of the office and call her agent.

“Unfazed, she replied, ‘Well, I didn’t know if he was your type,’” de Rossi said about her agent.

This follows actress Julianna Margulies telling a radio show host last week about a “horrific” encounter with Seagal from years ago that involved the actor’s gun.

A representative for Seagal did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
