Portia de Rossi claims Steven Seagal put her on the casting couch in his office during an audition - and she's also blasting her then-agent for a callous and nonchalant reaction.

Seagal allegedly told De Rossi that the "chemistry off-screen" was important, then reportedly proceeded to unzip his leather pants.

"He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather trousers", de Rossi tweeted late Wednesday.

Not only Marguiles, actress Lisa Guerrero also recently told the Los Angeles Times about her unpleasant encounter with Seagal when he greeted her and her female casting agent at his door "wearing nothing but a silky robe", adds the Vulture report.

Shortly after she posted the tweet, her wife, USA chat show host Ellen, also took to Twitter, writing: "I'm proud of my wife".

Mr Seagal's manager told BBC News that the actor had no comment. Former The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies said during a November 3 interview on the Just Jenny Show that Seagal "made sure that I saw his gun" during an audition in his hotel room.

The allegations, which were shared by the Arrested Development actor on Twitter, follows similar claims of misconduct made against Seagal by three other women. I got to the hotel around 10.40pm and she wasn't there and he was alone and he made sure t hat I saw his gun. "Finally he approached me and asked, 'Would you like to go into my dressing room?'" she recalled.

The Australian star said she fled the scene and rushed to her agent. "I got out of there unscathed", she said.

The final audition for the unknown project took place in Seagal's office. I was never raped, and I was never harmed.
