Actor Steven Seagal has been caught on tape calling female reporters “c***suckers” and “a bunch of f***ing dirty whores” in leaked tapes.

The 65-year-old, who is facing several sexual harassment allegations, can be heard ranting to a male interviewer about female journalists in audio clips obtained by the Daily Mail.

“Well, I found that interestingly enough, the few times that I had a hard time, it was usually with women,” the actor said in the clip captured while Seagal was promoting his 1988 film Above the Law.

“When somebody is on tour, a promotional tour, he’s there to talk about his film, not about who he’s f***ed or who he would like to f*** or who his wife was with ten years ago.

“They should go into pornography or something else instead of journalism if they want to hear that s***. They’re a bunch of a**holes,” he continued.

The actor goes on to recall a time a female reporter wrote false and discriminating stories about him after she “pretended like she was in love.”

“If I ever see her again, I’ll tell her to her face, I think she belongs in a zoo,” he said. “Bunch of f***ing dirty whores!”

“You sit down with this sweet little nice girl and she seems to adore you and all this and that, and you're a perfect gentleman, and you know, unbelievable.

“The way you combat is by let's not ever do an interview again to show these c***suckers,” he said.

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, a number of women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment against Mr Seagal.

TV reporter Lisa Guerrero told the Hollywood Reporter the actor allegedly invited her to his home for a “private audition” in 1996.

Suspicious of the invite, Ms Guerrero said she brought a female casting director with her.

She said Mr Seagal answered the door in a silk robe and although he never exposed himself to her or touched her, she said the actor told her she could have a bigger role if she returned for a “private rehearsal.”

Actress Rae Dawn Chong made similar claims in a blog The Wrap.
