Social media exploded Wednesday evening as Ellen DeGeneres’ wife Portia de Rossi went public with a story about action movie star and director Steven Seagal.
De Rossi tweeted that during a final audition for a Seagal movie she was approached with a lewd advance, saying that Seagal unzipped his leather pants after sitting her down in his office.
“My final audition for a Steven Se[a]gal 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.” she tweeted.
The actress said that she ran out of Seagal’s office and called her agent, only to get a response of “Well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”
Many responded on social media by calling out both Seagal and de Rossi’s agent for her response.
It’s not clear at this time which Seagal movie de Rossi was auditioning for or when the alleged incident occurred.
