Portia de Rossi is among the growing list of actresses who have accused Steven Seagal of sexually assaulting them.

De Rossi said she was asked to meet with the Russian-American actor for an audition for a role when he chose to unzip his trousers.

"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. The then ran from the office and called her agent, who apparently seemed aware of what might happen.

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

Reps for Steven Seagal have been contacted for comment.

Margulies, who later shot to fame for her role in 1990s hit series "ER" and more recently in "The Good Wife", said a female casting director told her Seagal wanted to go over a scene with her in his NY hotel room at night.

Seagal has yet to respond to the allegations.

Julianna Margulies last week recounted an unpleasant encounter with the 65-year-old former 1980s star, with whom she appeared in the 1991 movie "Out for Justice".

'I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, "Oh, I don't do that".

The Australian star said she fled the scene and rushed to her agent. "It's a long story... but I never was raped, and I never was harmed, and I don't know how I got out of that hotel room".

"I saw his gun; I had never seen a gun in real life". And I got out of there unscathed...

Another actor, Lisa Guerrero, alleges that Seagal once conducted a 1996 audition with her for the film Fire Down Below while wearing only a silk robe.

She added, "It always starts with, 'I'm a healer, I want to massage you.' I sort of squirmed my way out". Margulies claimed that she had initially been told that a female casting director would be in attendance for the audition, but that when she arrived Seagal was alone.
