Portia de Rossi accuses Steven Seagal of sexual harassment in Twitter post

Portia de Rossi is adding Steven Seagal's name to the growing list of sexual predators in Hollywood, accusing him of trying to expose himself to her during an audition.

After this allegation, Twitter was flooded with support for De Rossi, including from her wife, Ellen DeGeneres.

The "Good Wife" star said a female casting director had told her that Seagal wanted to go over a movie scene with her in his hotel room.

Last week, another actress Julianna Margulies recounted her encounter with Seagal in an interview with Jenny Hutt on SiriusXM's Just Jenny. Back in 1998, Seagal was accused by Jenny McCarthy of repeatedly asking her to remove her clothes during an Under Siege 2's casting session.

Actress-turned-journalist Lisa Guerrero also claimed that Seagal almost assaulted her. When she arrived Seagal answered the door in wearing only a silk kimono which made her very uncomfortable.

In a tweet yesterday, the Arrested Development star recalled her experience in an audition with Seagal. She somehow got out of the room "unscathed".

"I saw his gun; I had never seen a gun in real life". "I'm happy you weren't harmed in any way".

"I ran out and called my agent", she recalled.

"He came up to me and said, 'I'm Dustin - burp - Hoffman, ' and he put his hand on my breast".

Heigl responded, "Isn't that illegal" and claims Segal replied "They don't seem to mind". "I think we know why", she said. "I said, 'isn't that illegal?"

De Rossi explained she was auditioning for a role in a Steven Seagal movie, and the final audition took place in his office.

United States action movie actor Steven Seagal was the latest Hollywood man in the crosshairs of mounting sexual misconduct allegations on Thursday, following the downfall of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.
