Portia de Rossi: Steven Seagal “Unzipped” in Front of Me, Sucks as a Person

Portia de Rossi is out for some kind of justice against Steven Seagal.

And we really hope she gets it.

The veteran actress took to Twitter on Wednesday to level a serious accusation against the former action star, claiming Seagal made a clear sexual advance in her direction a number of years ago.

Here is how de Rossi described the disturbing scene:

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.

I ran out and called my agent.

Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”

Jeez. It’s hard to even say what’s more troubling here:

The actions of Seagal or the response of Portia’s agent?

The Arrested Development and Scandal actress has made this claim not long after Julianna Margulies outlined a similar encounter with Seagal back when Margulies was just 23 years old.

“A casting director, a woman, said, ‘Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o’clock at night,’” The Good Wife star told Jenny Hutt on SiriusXM’s Just Jenny last Friday.

For understandable reasons, Margulies explained that she was hesitant to follow this direction.

She tried to make excuses for why she couldn’t attend the random and possibly shady meeting.

“I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, ‘Oh, I don’t do that. I don’t travel. I don’t have money for a cab.’ And I didn’t,” Margulies said on the show, adding:

“And I said, ‘And I don’t take subways late at night.’ And she says, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll reimburse you. And I’m here, a woman.’

I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn’t there. And he was. Alone. And he made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life.

“And I got out of there unscathed.”

Ummm… WTH?!?

Seagal has not made a movie in ages, and yet has been in the news often of late.

First, he slammed the NFL and looked like this in an interview:

Then, footage surfaced of Seagal referring to female journalists as bitches.

So, we’re not saying de Rossi and Margulies are 100% telling the truth for sure.

We’re just saying we wouldn’t be surprised if they were.

Last month, Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero went public with her own alleged encounter, stating that Seagal answered the door of an audition one time “in a silk robe and nothing else.”

Guerrero went on to claim that she was cut from a movie after refusing to go to Seagal’s dressing room.

Again, would anyone really be stunned if this happened?

Steven Seagal: Sexist Rant About Female Journalists Exposed

Steven Seagal might seem like too much of a caricature to actually exist, but we regret to remind you that he is all too real.

The actor, who has openly pondered a political run and shared some of his truly frightening political views, is only the latest to be accused of sexual harassment.

But newly revealed audio of Steven Seagal has him ranting angrily about female journalists in what has been characterized as a misogynistic rant. You can listen below for yourself.

What's the most recent news that we've heard from this guy?

Probably when Steven Seagal slammed the NFL for "disrespecting the flag." There were a couple of problems with his complaints.

One, that's not what the NFL protests are about — they're not sticking up their middle finger at America, they're using the opportunity to protest the killing of unarmed black men by the very police who are supposed to protect them and enforce the law.

At this point, we feel like anyone who honestly wants to understand the situation already knows that.

Two, if Steven Seagal loves America so much, why does he live in Russia?

Russia isn't just another country — it's a hostile foreign power that has actively worked against the United States time after time.

And yet Steven Seagal seems to absolutely adore Russia's shameless despot, Vladimir Putin.

We don't really need to rehash the election interference that almost no one is denying, right? Or the habit of Vladimir Putin's political enemies have of being poisoned or otherwise dying?

(The same happens to journalists investigating Putin and his interests)

So Steven Seagal has some pretty controversial opinions, to say the least.

That is not, however, the most recent thing that we've heard about Steven Seagall.

In the aftermath of the Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, more and more actresses (and actors!) have been coming forward with their #MeToo stories.

In many cases, they've revealed instances of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Some women have come forward to add their names to the lists of Harvey Weinstein's accusers.

Others have, for a host of reasons, declined to name the men who harassed or assaulted them.

Actress Jenny McCarthy, perhaps best known for her ludicrous "medical" beliefs that have mad her name synonymous with the anti-vaxx movement, recently came forward in a podcast.

She alleges that Steven Seagal told her to take off her dress during a casting call for one of his films. Just so that you know, folks, that is not appropriate.

And Lisa Guerrero, who is now a journalist but was once an actress, told The Hollywood Reporter of her own Steven Seagal encounter.

She alleges that in the '90s, Steven Seagal summoned her to his Beverly Hills home for an audition.

That's a little weird, so she insisted upon the casting director also being present, so it should be fine, right?

Well … Steven Seagal not only seemed surprise to see that casting director with her, but he answered the door in a silk kimono.

Now, we're sure that kimonos are very comfy, but if you're not a college student, you should probably put on something other than a robe when people come over. Especially if it's a work thing.

Instead, she describes how Steven Seagal sat on a throne-like chair in his robe and watched her audition for 10 minutes.

It was fine — he didn't touch her or expose himself. But … what would have happened if she hadn't brought the casting director?

While the brief audio clip, which you can listen to below, doesn't provide a whole lot of context, it's pretty damning on its own.

You hear Steven Seagal's own voice as he speaks to a male interviewer.

"The few times that I had a hard time was usually with women."

That's not a great way to talk about … anything.

"When somebody is on tour, a promotional tour, he’s there to talk about his film, not about who he’s f—ing or who he would like to f— or who his wife was with ten years ago."

Those are the explicit versions of normal questions to ask celebrities.

"They should go into pornography or something else instead of journalism if they want to hear that s–t. They're a bunch of a—-."

They should "go into pornography" … what?! Does he mean that they should be porn stars or interview porn stars? Both suggestions are absurd.

He has some lovely things to say about some unnamed woman.

"I won't even dare tell you what I think it is. It was just some dumb b–ch that is a liar and wanted to be sensational."

If someone is saying "some dumb b–ch" and not jokingly referring to themselves or making a totally okay inside joke with a friend … that tells you a lot about their opinions of women.

Steven Seagal's decision to style his home and much of his clothing in an Asian manner is fine. He's a little eccentric, sure. But it's fine.

As we all learned in 2016, an audio recording of a man with extensive Russian ties saying offensive things about women doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be negatively impacted.

Of course … what exactly is Steven Seagal's career these days? So whatever fallout this audio recording might have had during his heyday probably won't amount to anything in 2017.

Steven Seagal Slams NFL, Resembles All Sorts of Pretend Villains

Steven Seagal is … wait for it… UNDER SIEGE by the Internet.

The former action star sat down for a bizarre interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday morning, speaking to the host from his home in Russia and taking serious umbrage with athletes who kneel during the National Anthem.

"I believe in free speech," the actor said, prior to contradicting this statement as follows:

"I believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t agree that they should hold the United States of America or the world hostage by taking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football game and imposing their political views.

"I think it’s outrageous. I think it’s a joke. It’s disgusting.

"I respect the American flag, and I myself have risked my life countless times for the American flag and I don’t understand or agree with this kind of behavior. I think it’s an outrage.”

Seagal, of course, is talking about the scandal Donald Trump stirred last week when he said NFL players who take a knee during the National Anthem ought to be fired.

Well over 100 players responded to this stance by…. taking a knee on Sunday.

But that's a debate for another day.

The issue at hand following Seagal's strange Q&A ("For anyone to think that Vladimir Putin had anything to do with fixing the elections, or even that the Russians have that kind of technology, is stupid," he said at one point) was the actor's appearance.

Twitter can't seem to decide just what sort of villain Seagal most resembles in the video below.

Here are two options:

Not bad choices, right?

You can see where each Twitter user is coming from.

Another critic speculated on how there's an "87% chance this is a John Travolta character," while another chimed in as follows:

"Steven Seagal can’t decide who he’s angrier at – kneeling NFL players or the wizard who cursed him to gradually turn into an owl."
