Jenny McCarthy says actor Steven Seagal sexually harassed her during an audition in 1995.

The former Playboy model recounted her encounter with Seagal during a tryout for "Under Siege 2" on her Sirius XM radio show Thursday.

She says she was alone in the room with Seagal when he asked her to sit next to him on a couch. After she declined, she says Seagal asked her to take her clothes off even though the part required no nudity. McCarthy says she walked out of the audition, but Seagal followed her and warned her not to talk to anyone about the encounter.

McCarthy told the same story to Movieline in 1998. Actress Portia de Rossi made a similar allegation against Seagal earlier this week.

A representative for Seagal didn't immediately return a request for comment Friday, but a Seagal spokesman has denied the McCarthy's accusations to The Daily Beast.
