American actor and producer Steven Seagal is facing a fresh accusation of sexual harassment.
Actress Portia de Rossi, the wife of talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, made the allegation on Twitter.
Without giving details of time and place, Ms de Rossi said that Seagall had unzipped his trousers at an audition.
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) 8 novembre 2017
DeGeneres said she was ‘proud’ of her wife.

Seagal starred in action films in the 1980s and 1990s.
Now 65, he had already been accused of misconduct by a number of women.
Neither he nor his entourage have given an immediate response to the latest claims.
