Steven Seagal becomes the latest actor to be hit by sexual harassment allegations

Jenny McCarthy accused him of sexual harassment back in 1998 while casting for Under Siege 2.

The claims against Seagal follow weeks of allegations of sexual misconduct against Hollywood heavyweights like Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner, James Toback, Kevin Spacey and more.

Last month, Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero came forward with her own alleged encounter, claiming that Seagal answered the door of an audition "in a silk robe and nothing else".

Actress Portia de Rossi and actor Steven Seagal.

DeGeneres retweeted the post to her more than 75 million followers saying: "I'm proud of my wife".

Portia tweeted the ordeal: "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 trousers", the Australian-born actress tweeted late Wednesday. I️ ran out and called my agent. "I specifically asked her and she said no'".

Maybe he was testing her to see if she would say anything about his fly being down during their meeting?

Portia de Rossi put her new 280 Twitter character limit to use on Wednesday when she tweeted about an uncomfortable experience with actor Steven Seagal. He has been residing in Russian Federation since 2016, has so far refused to comment on any of the stories that have come to light against him.

She says she was alone in the room with Seagal when he asked her to sit next to him on a couch. He says, 'I know you must have a attractive body under there. How many girls had to do more? "And I have so much energy I need to stand'". "And I can't really tell what your body looks like in that dress that you're wearing, '" Seagal said.

Allegedly, Steven then claimed that "off-camera nudity" was required and demanded she lower her dress.

"In my head I'm like, 'Okay. here we go". Sound the alarms. This is not a test, this is the real thing. "My eyes filled with water and I yelled, 'Go buy my Playboy video - it's on sale for $19.99" and [I] just took off". "I walk in and I shake his hand with a firm grip just to show him how professional I am". My agent says there's no nudity. "And I got out of there unscathed", she said.

Though McCarthy was "totally starstruck" to see Seagal, she remembered walking into the audition room with a "firm", "serious actress" handshake.
