Following recent allegations from actresses Julianna Margulies and Portia De Rossi, Katherine Heigl, and others, Jenny McCarthy is the latest to step forward with a story about loathsome human Steven Seagal. Page Six reports that it’s a story that she’s told before (in 1998), about a 1995 audition for Under Siege 2. While speaking on SiriusXM radio yesterday, McCarthy recalled that she “purposefully wore a muumuu to the audition so the casting people would actually look at my face and watch my work.” Like Margulies, she entered the room and found only Seagal there, who quickly complained that he couldn’t see what her body looked like under the large dress and demanded to see her breasts, even though McCarthy had been assured that the role did not include nudity. McCarthy said she started crying, but countered with yelling, “Go buy my Playboy video—it’s on sale for $19.99,” before departing, which frankly is a pretty impressive line to come up with under the circumstances.
While De Rossi claims that Seagal unzipped his leather pants in front of her, and Margulies says that she saw her first live gun in that hotel room, McCarthy alleges that Seagal threatened her after the incident: “As she reached her car, Seagal had followed her, and allegedly warned her not to tell anyone of their encounter ‘or else.’” In a non-shocking turn of events, Page Six says “Seagal’s spokesperson has denied McCarthy’s allegations to at least one media outlet.”
McCarthy stated, “It was so disheartening. And I thought about like, ‘I was the last girl that day. How many girls had to take off their clothes? How many girls had to do more?’”
