While Steven Seagal hasn't responded to the accusation, several celebrities have backed de Rossi including her wife, comedian Ellen DeGeneres. The TV chat show host tweeted: "I'm proud of my wife."
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.”— Portia de Rossi (@portiaderossi) November 8, 2017
The allegation comes after the accusations involving Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, as well as the use of the #MeToo hashtag in recent weeks.
