Jenny McCarthy Reshares Steven Seagal Harassment Claim

Jenny McCarthy Reshares Steven Seagal Harassment Claim”

Jenny McCarthy recounted an alleged casting couch encounter with Steven Seagal on Sirius XM Thursday amid new allegations regarding the actor from Julianna Margulies and Portia di Rossi, 19 years after McCarthy first shared the story. She said, "Under Siege 1 was a big deal because they hired a [Playboy] Playmate [Erika Eleniak]". We reached into our back issues to provide you with the entire anecdote. "This is a big deal'".

Though McCarthy was "totally starstruck" to see Seagal, she remembered walking into the audition room with a "firm", "serious actress" handshake.

She said she walked into Seagal's office and quickly noticed there were no other people in the room. She reasoned, "He's a celebrity, so maybe it's normal". When I said, 'Well, I'm ready to read, ' he said, 'Stand up, you have to be kind of sexy in the movie and in that dress, I can't tell.' I stand up and he goes, 'Take off your dress.' I said, 'What?' and he said, 'There's nudity.' I said, 'No, there's not, or I wouldn't be here right now.' He said again, 'There's nudity, ' and I said, 'The pages are right in front of me. Relax.' I said, 'No, thank you. I'm just really excited to read for this part.

"I paused, I looked up at him, went from shocked to sadness". Sound the alarms. This is not a test, this is the real thing. "Activate all defense systems, '" she said. So I told him, I said, 'Listen.

When she said her agent specifically told her there was no nudity in the part, Seagal replied, "Well there is off camera nudity. The actress claimed that Seagal then told her, "'You know, this part has nudity in it.

When I press her on the subject, the hurt in her voice says she's still freaked. How many girls had to take off their clothes? "How many girls had to do more?' It just so grossed me out".

Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer, said this week about the sex claims: "The lawsuit filed by Kayden Nguyen against Steven Seagal is a ridiculous and absurd claim by a disgruntled ex-employee who was sacked for using illegal narcotics".

The actor's spokesman has previously denied McCarthy's accusations, telling the Daily Beast that Warner Bros. casting for the film confirmed that McCarthy never auditioned for a role in "Under Siege 2" and "her claim is completely false". Di Rossi stated in a tweet that Seagal unzipped his trousers in a meeting with her, and Margulies claimed that Seagal brought a gun to an audition.

Seagal's representative did not immediately respond to a Times request for comment on Friday.

Hear McCarthy's full account on The Jenny McCarthy Show. On Wednesday, the Arrested Development star tweeted that he "unzipped his leather pants" during an audition, explaining "how important it was to have chemistry off-screen".
