Portia de Rossi has accused Steven Seagal of sexual harassment.
The Arrested Development actress took to Twitter to share the story of her encounter with the producer and actor, Gay Star News reports.
De Rossi explained in the tweet that she auditioning for a role in a Steven Seagal movie in the actor’s office.
She claims that Seagal spoke about the importance of having “chemistry off-camera” as he sat down with her.
The actress then claims that Seagal began to unzip his “leather pants,” leading de Rossi to run out of the room and call her agent.
Things only got worse, however, as she claims her agent was “unfazed” by the news and told her: “Well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”
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.”
