Actor Portia de Rossi alleged in a tweet that Steven Seagal once unzipped his trousers in front of her.

"I'm proud of my wife", she wrote.

Telling him she had been told there was no nudity, Seagal allegedly told her "there is off-camera nudity".

Seagal has yet to respond to the allegations. And I got out of there unscathed...

Margulies, who later shot to fame for her role in 1990s hit series "ER" and more recently in "The Good Wife", said a female casting director told her Seagal wanted to go over a scene with her in his NY hotel room at night.

Portia says the incident happened during her final audition for a part in one of Seagal's movies - she does not say which one.

In the tweet, Ms de Rossi said her complaints about Mr Seagal's behaviour were dismissed at the time by her agent.

A post shared by Julianna Margulies (@julianna.margulies) on Sep 22, 2017 at 6:41pm PDTWhen I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said "Well Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o'clock at night.' I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, 'Oh, I don't do that". According to Portia's tweet, her female agent only said, "Well, I didn't know if he was your type".

Julianna Margulies last week recounted an unpleasant encounter with the 65-year-old former 1980s star, with whom she appeared in the 1991 movie "Out for Justice".

Though the allegations are rising to the surface in the wake of the Weinstein news, Seagal was accused of inappropriate behavior long before the Weinstein scandal. "I said, 'isn't that illegal?"

"I go inside [Seagal's] office, which has shag carpet and this huge couch, and he's by himself and says, 'Sit on my couch, '" McCarthy recalled. It always starts with 'I'm a healer. Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer-who now represents stars like Ratner-denied the claims, calling them "false, fabricated and defamatory".
