“My final audition for a Steven Seagal movie took place in his office,” de Rossi explained. “He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, ‘well, I didn’t know if he was your type.'”

Ellen DeGeneres, who’s married to de Rossi, backed up her up on Twitter adding, “I’m proud of my wife.”

The “Arrested Development” star is one of three women who have made sexual misconduct allegations against the 65-year-old actor-producer.

Former actress turned TV journalist Lisa Guerrero was the first to come forward with allegations against Seagal, followed by Julianna Margulies who accused him of trying to lure her into a hotel room.
