The actress adds her female agent was "unfazed."
The "Arrested Development" actress, who is also married to Ellen DeGeneres, said that the former action star unzipped his fly in front of her while auditioning for one of his movies.
"My final audition for a Steven Seagal 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," de Rossi tweeted Wednesday.
She continued to explain that she immediately ran out of their meeting and called her agent to explain what had just occurred, but even she was completely "unfazed" by the actor's actions.

I️ ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”— Portia de Rossi (@portiaderossi) November 8, 2017
De Rossi's claim comes shortly after "The Good Wife" star Julianna Margulies recalled her "horrific" hotel room meeting with Seagal when she was 23 years old.
"When 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.' And I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, 'Oh, I don't do that. I don't travel. I don't have money for a cab.' And I didn't," Margulies said in an interview on Sirius XM. "And I said, ‘And I don't take subways late at night.' And she says, ‘Don't worry, we'll reimburse you. And I'm here.' A woman, because we need to start holding these people accountable."
The actress continued, "And I got to the hotel around 10:40 p.m. and she wasn't there and he was alone and he made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life. And I got out of there unscathed…I never was raped, and I never was harmed. I don't know how I got out of that hotel room. It always starts with 'I'm a healer. I want to massage you' and I sort of squirmed my way out."
The allegations are the latest accusations against a major Hollywood star. The Harvey Weinstein scandal has emboldened women and men in entertainment to speak out about unsavory experiences of all kinds, ranging from harassment to sexual assault, misconduct and rape.
