Actress Porsche De Rossi (Portia De Rossi) accused the actor and producer Steven Seagal of harassment that allegedly occurred during one of the auditions for the role in his film.

“My last audition for Steven Seagal’s role was in his office. He said that it was important to have a “chemistry” on the other side of the screen, seated me and unbuttoned my leather pants. I rushed out and called the agent. She calmly replied, “Well, I did not know that he was not in your taste.”

How many years was Rossi and for which film she was auditioned, is not specified. The wife of Rossi, TV presenter Ellen Degeneres said she was proud of her.

In addition, Segal was accused of harassment actress Julianne Margulis (TV series “Good wife”), as well as former actress and correspondent of Inside Edition, Lisa Guerrero.

Margulis said: when she was 23 years old, she was invited to an evening audition at the hotel. Representatives of Segal said that there will be a female casting director in the room, but the actor was alone.

I saw his genitals. I’ve never seen them in real life. I ran out of there, I do not know how I got out of there. I somehow got out of this situation.

According to Guerrero, in 1996, when she was 32 years old, Segal had auditioned with her for the film “Fire from the Underworld” in one silk dressing gown. The actress manager said that Segal was ready to offer her a leading role in the film if she agreed to a “private rehearsal”. Guerrero refused.
