  • Portia de Rossi Steven Segal

Ellen DeGeneres has spoken out in support of her wife, Portia de Rossi, after the actress accused Steven Seagal of sexual misconduct.

She claims the actor unzipped his pants in front of her and sexually propositioned her. "He told me how important it was to have chemistry off=screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather trousers".

She says the next bombshell came when she ran out of the office and called her agent.

The former "Ally McBeal" star tweeted details of an alleged incident she experienced when she attended an audition at the 65-year-old's office.

Her wife, talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres wrote: "I'm proud of my wife".

Last week, Julianna Margulies said she was intimidated by Steven Seagal, who showed her a gun in a hotel room. When she arrived Seagal answered the door in wearing only a silk kimono which made her very uncomfortable. Unfazed, she replied, "well, I did not know if he was your type". "Finally he approached me and asked, 'Would you like to go into my dressing room?'" she recalled. After she refused and ran to her vehicle, McCarthy said he followed her outside and told her not to tell anyone "or else".

"He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life", Margulies said in an interview with SiriusXM. And I got out of there unscathed ... I was never raped, and I was never harmed.

The Australian star said she fled the scene and rushed to her agent.

Margulies says, "I got to the hotel at 10.40 (pm), and she wasn't there". "[He says] 'So, you were Playmate of the Year?' Then he said, 'Take off your dress.' I just started crying and said, 'Rent my Playboy video, you a-hole!' and ran out to the vehicle".

She added, "It always starts with, 'I'm a healer, I want to massage you.' I sort of squirmed my way out". Rossi was auditioning for a role in the actor's movie.

Actress-turned-journalist Lisa Guerrero also claimed that Seagal almost assaulted her.
