Portia de Rossi Claims Steven Seagal Exposed Himself During an Audition

Portia de Rossi Claims Steven Seagal Exposed Himself During an Audition
Portia de Rossi has come forward via social media to accuse Steven Seagal of sexually harassing her and exposing himself during an audition. Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi's partner of 9 years, has written a supportive tweet in response. Seagal is currently living in Russia with his new best friend Vladimir Putin and has yet to respond to de Rossi's claims or the stack of other accusations that have recently come to light over the past few weeks against the Under Siege actor.

Portia de Rossi took to Twitter to share her experience with Steven Seagal, claiming that he sexually harassed her during an audition. The former star told young de Rossi that it was important to show chemistry on the screen, so he unzipped his leather pants and exposed himself to her. The actress had this to say.

"My final audition for a Steven Seagal movie took place in his office.

Julianna Margulies Says Steven Seagal Sexually Harassed Her

Julianna Margulies Says Steven Seagal Sexually Harassed Her
Steven Seagal has been accused of sexual misconduct in the past and the latest woman to come forward about the former action star is Julianna Margulies. Margulies claims that Steven Seagal attempted to seduce her against her will while his gun was in plain sight. Seagal was recently accused of sexual misconduct by Inside Edition host Lisa Guerrero who claims that he tried to get her to come up for a private audition late at night for the movie Fire Down Below. Guerrero did not get the role, which she blames on not going to the late night "audition."

Julianna Margulies was recently on Jenny Hutton's talk show, Just Jenny, and she recalled the time that a casting agent set her up to be alone in Steven Seagal's apartment. When she was 23-years old, Margulies said, a female casting director sent her to Seagal's apartment at 10 p.m.

Steven Seagal Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Inside Edition Correspondent Amid Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Steven Seagal Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Inside Edition Correspondent Amid Harvey Weinstein Scandal
Steven Seagal is the latest major Hollywood figure accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

The Under Siege star was recently accused of trying to proposition Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero back in 1996. In a new interview with Newsweek, the reporter said the actor asked to meet with her at his home to do a private audition for the movie Fire Down Below. Feeling uncomfortable, Guerrero told the outlet she went with a female representative from her casting firm. Guerrero claimed Seagal greeted them wearing only a silk robe.

Steven Seagal, a Silk Kimono and a "Private Rehearsal": One Actress Remembers Her Nightmare Audition

Emboldened by the avalanche of sexual assault accusations leveled against Harvey Weinstein over the past week, others have begun to come forward with their own experiences of harassment in Hollywood — and they are naming names.

Among them is Lisa Guerrero, 53, an Inside Edition correspondent who says, while pursuing an acting career in the mid 1990s, she was summoned to Steven Seagal's Beverly Hills mansion for an audition for the female lead in 1997's Fire Down Below, in which Seagal plays an Epa agent who investigates the dumping of toxic waste in a Kentucky mine.

Guerrero, then 31, agreed...

Tsr Exclusive: ‘Prince Avalanche’ Interview with Writer/Director David Gordon Green

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch play two clashing highway road workers in Prince Avalanche, a goofy but rich comedy that adapts an obscure Icelandic film titled Either Way from 2011. Shot with a small crew and featuring a diabolical mustache from Paul Rudd, the film is written and directed by David Gordon Green.

Like a select few before him, Green is an intriguing creative force in Hollywood for his disinterest to stand still, and in the same place. He originally gained recognition by making indie film darlings like George Washington and All the Real Girls, but later challenged any type of genre categorization by following up the dark film Snow Angels with Pineapple Express. From there he went on to direct two raunchy comedies back to back, Your Highness and The Sitter, released in the same year. His latest, Prince Avalanche, continues his interest in comedy, but doesn’t feature the

This Happened: Steven Seagal, Dancing in the Streets of Chechnya. Um, Sure.

It's not very often that we here at NextMovie want to show you random videos of people joyously dancing in the streets of Chechnya — every two Thursdays or so, at a maximum — but sometimes you have to make exceptions.

Like, say, when Steven Seagal visits the embattled Russian territory for no reason and decides to become one of those people joyously dancing, making sure a camera is capturing his every cringe-worthy movement to eventually broadcast on the internet. That's an exception we'll make every day.

It's difficult to say that anything Steven Seagal has ever been in is a "must-watch," but I promise, this video comes as close as possible to that designation. It's going to make your day better, and that's really all you can ask.

Or, if "Steven Seagal embarrassing himself on camera" comes up short of your high standards for clicking on one-minute videos, can we perhaps

Q&A: Steven Seagal Talks 'The Expendables' With 'Maximum Conviction'

Steven Seagal is a man of many talents: International movie star, TV action hero, part-time law enforcer and full-time ass kicker. He even sings the blues and made the ponytail look manly.

In his newest action flick "Maximum Conviction" – coming to DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 6th – Seagal teams with "Stone Cold"' Steve Austin to battle a team of elite mercenaries after the transportation of two inmates goes awry. The movie is vintage Seagal, complete epic gun fights, explosions, witty puns and all the bone-crunching Aikido one can handle in 90 minutes.

Taking a pause from breaking necks and limbs, Steven took the time to sit down with us and discuss upcoming projects, his thoughts on "The Expendables" franchise (hint: he doesn't love it) and the odds that we'll ever refer to him as President Seagal.

"Maximum Conviction" is an action fans' dream. It's got shoot outs, twists, you are

Book Review: ‘Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal’

Chicago – Vern started his career as one of those snarky critics who wrote in to Harry Knowles’ landmark and influential movie website Ain’t It Cool News. He became a regular writer for the site and his work there turned him into a very unorthodox author. His first book was a fantastic examination of, believe it or not, the career of Steven Seagal. Newly updated with a dozen new chapters about the recent adventures of his subject matter (the first printing was in 2008), “Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal” is a funny, clever read for fans of the unusual action star and those who have never seen one of his movies. Vern’s movie-loving, smart, enjoyable writing makes this a more entertaining experience than Seagal himself has ever produced.

Don’t worry. This is not tongue-in-cheek nonsense. To say that Vern takes his subject matter seriously would be a Massive understatement.

Steven Seagal joining Sylvester Stallone and company on The Expendables 3?

A couple of weeks ago we heard from Randy Couture that he expected filming to commence on The Expendables 3 later in the year, despite the fact that the second installment in the star-studded action series doesn't arrive in cinemas until August. Well, if that proves to be the case, we could be seeing another former big-name action star lining up alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren and company as several sites are reporting that Stallone has made an offer to rescue Steven Seagal from direct-to-video-land with a role in the third movie.

The report originally emerged from Joblo's Arrow in the Head, who found a quote from Seagal stating that "He [Sylvester Stallone] plans to do another one and I have already been made an offer. We’ll see…" The quote came from an interview over at Excessif.com, which took place at the back end of 2011; if true,

Steven Seagal hired to help patrol U.S. border

  • Pop2it
American borders are "Under Siege" from illegal immigration. But no one is "Above the Law," and action star turned lawman Steven Seagal is out to prove just that.

Seagal, 59, has been sworn in as the newest deputy in Hudspeth, Texas. According to reports, he will be working full time to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border, as illegal immigration is a crime that is "Hard to Kill."

Most surprisingly, it wasn't an "Executive Decision" to appoint Seagal -- he sought the position himself.

"It became very clear to me that Mr. Seagal is not in this for the celebrity or the publicity," says Sheriff Arvin West. "He's like the rest of us that live down here; he has a sincere passion for his country and he wants to do more." 

So you could say that Seagal is "Out For Justice."

Seagal arrived in Sierra Blanca on Monday (Oct. 10) for

'Namor: The First Mutant' to end in June

'Namor: The First Mutant' to end in June
Marvel Comics' Namor: The First Mutant is to end this summer. In an interview with Cbr, writer Stuart Moore confirmed that the title will conclude in June with issue #11. "It's my sad duty to report that Namor: The First Mutant will end with issue #11, so we're not going to get around to Fantastic Four guest stars," he said. "I expect you'll see some of that, eventually, in Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting's terrific new Ff title." Moore went on to say that issues #9 to #11 of Namor will form a story arc called 'The Fire Down Below', which pulls together all of the series' plot threads. "I'm very pleased with (more)

Steven Seagal's silliest roles

He's played everything from ex-cia agents to ex-Navy Seals. Here, we recall some of the pony-tailed slugger's most baffling moments

Did you know that Steven Seagal can speak fluent Japanese? He can. And that's not where the wavy-handed action star's accomplishments end. He's a musician with two albums on general release and a third, bluesy number on its way; a lawman who is a reserve deputy sheriff in Jefferson parish, Louisiana; and a businessman who markets a range of essential oils, and has even produced his own brand of aftershave and energy drink, the latter a pungent brew containing ginseng, guarana and Tibetan goji berries. He's even said to have taken time out from his busy schedule selling the neon-tinged liquid to write to the prime minister of India and demand better rights for cows.

But as unlikely as Seagal's real-life exploits sound, none come close to the cabal of

Looking back at Leviathan

We take a look back at Leviathan, a sci-fi horror hotchpotch of Alien, The Thing and Jaws, in which Peter Weller takes on a vodka-fuelled fish monster…

As 80s B-movies go, Leviathan surely boasts one of the coolest casts of the decade. Even on paper, a film that stars RoboCop, Colonel Trautman out of the Rambo movies, one of the hapless villains out of Home Alone and its sequel, plus Ghostbusters’ Winston Zeddemore sounds great. As does its premise, which is essentially a schlocky rip-off of Alien and The Thing.

One of a flotilla of undersea sci-fi thrillers to drift out of Hollywood in the decade (see also James Cameron’s flashier The Abyss, Roger Corman’s Lord Of The Deep and Sean S Cunningham’s DeepStar Six, to name a few), Leviathan was the product of the late Florentine director George Pan Cosmatos, whose work also included train-based disaster flick The Cassandra Crossing,

Top 7 Worst Singers Turned Actors

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

Attn: Justin Bieber -

This is a list dedicated to entertainers who tried to give us the best of both worlds, meaning acting And singing – and failed. Sometimes, devastatingly so.

It is not meant to indicate any pessimism for Miley Cyrus or her new film The Last Song, as she is just beginning to start her venture into “real” acting (and The Hannah Montana Movie had worse acting, and not from her, anyway.)

Read Jeff Bayer’s Tsr of ‘The Last Song

Of course, the legacy of the singer turned actor has had some great moments, like Ice Cube in Boyz N the Hood and Mandy Moore in Saved! Mariah Carey even saved herself from this list with her performance in Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.

Deadliest Catch | Cable girl

Camaraderie is king on the Deadliest Catch trawlers. Conversation, however, is less important

On the inky waves of the Bering Sea, a rare breed of man risks beard and bank balance in pursuit of the ocean's "ultimate" booty: crabs. This is the premise of Deadliest Catch (Discovery), a series that has been filming thickset Americans tripping over commercial fishing equipment since 2005. But, like its inferior scions (Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men et al), Deadliest Catch is really about reticence. Here, every shrug is an ode to a life spent avoiding conversation in waterproof dungarees.

What little dialogue there is appears to have been helicoptered in from an 80s action film. "Ya godda pick ya poison," mumbles deckhand Scott. "It's oudda ma hands," grunts greenhorn Shea. "Let's get tha hell oudda here," hisses skipper Sig through teeth like fish fingers. To immerse oneself in this symphony is to know tha true meanin' of pain.

It's Seagal vs. Vamps in Against the Dark

You see now This ... this is what I'm talking about! Never mind the comeback movies of Stallone or even Jcvd ... When Steven Seagal makes his comeback he's gonna be kicking the shit out of vampires! Can I get an Amen?!?

Sony Pictures' upcoming release of Against the Dark (formerly called Last Night) will find Seagal amidst all manner of toothy mayhem.

From the official synopsis:

"Katana master Tao (Steven Seagal) leads a special ops squad of ex-military vigilantes on a massacre mission, their target: vampires. On the post apocalyptic globe, sucked dry by bloodthirsty vampires, a few remaining survivors are trapped in an infected hospital. Tao is their only hope and he knows the only cure is execution. Now it’s time for the last stand against the flesh-eating vampires and there’s nothing left to lose but the last of humanity."
