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

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

    McCarthy told the same story to Movieline in 1998.

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

    This isn't the first sexual harassment allegation against the actor. On Wednesday, actress Portia de Rossi accused Seagal of unzipping his pants during a movie audition.

    Actress Julianna Marguiles recently opened up about meeting with Seagal in his hotel room when she was in her twenties about three decades ago. She said he showed off his gun and offered to give her a massage.

    E! News has reached out to Seagal for comment on both de Rossi and Marguiles' allegations.
