Another day, another Hollywood namesake goes down the toilet for sexual assault claims.
This time it's actor Steven Seagal in which actress Portia De Rossi claims sexually assaulted her when she auditioned for a role in one of Seagal’s films.
Portia de Rossi said, “My final audition for a Steven Segal 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. I ran out and called my agent.”

She went on to say, “Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type”.”
Reps for de Rossi and Segal could not immediately be reached for comment.
Actress Julianna Margulies recently recalled her own encounter with Seagal, alleging that she met with the actor in a hotel room years ago to go over a scene.
When she arrived at his room, Seagal was armed with a gun, she described.
She said, “He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life,” she said. “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 seems like the “#MeToo” campaign ever since Harvey Weinstein has literally torn apart Hollywood.
There's so many once high profile stars in which have now completely been destroyed (rightfully so) by the truth coming out that it is almost unbelievable at this point.
Unfortunately this might be another tough cookie to swallow for some, I mean accepting that Steven Seagal was ever an actor.
The sexual assault claim is unsurprising since he's not only a well known Hollywood name but the current debacle continues to expose the culture or rape and pedophilia within the community of the film industry.
Steven Seagal, the American actor and also a Russian citizen granted by Vladimir Putin since he's the the grandson of Russian Jews, also holds Serbian citizenship as well.
He's known for his action films in which he actually holds a 7th dan black belt in Akido, where he often had performed his own stunts on the set of his films.
In 1988, Seagal made his acting debut in Above the Law, and by 1991 he had starred in four successful films.
In 1992, he played Navy SEALs counter-terrorist expert Casey Ryback in Under Siege before spending the latter half of the 1990s Seagal starring in three more theatrical films and the direct-to-video film The Patriot.
Since then, his career has shifted almost entirely to direct-to-video productions.
He has since appeared in films and reality shows, including Steven Seagal: Lawman, which depicted Seagal performing his duties as a reserve deputy sheriff.
Seagal is a guitarist and has released two studio albums (Songs from the Crystal Cave and Mojo Priest), and performed on a number of film scores.
He has worked with Stevie Wonder and Tony Rebel, who both performed on his debut album. He has also been involved in a line of "therapeutic oil" products and energy drinks.
In addition, Seagal is known as an environmentalist, animal rights activist, and as a supporter of the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso.
He is also known for his outspoken political views and for his friendship with Vladimir Putin. Seagal once referred to Putin as "one of the great living world leaders".
Now, he's known as a sexual predator.
Hollywood is indeed dead.
