United States action movie actor Steven Seagal and comedian Louis C.K. were the latest stars in the crosshairs of mounting sexual misconduct allegations on Thursday (Friday in Manila), following the downfall of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. The blonde industry vet detailed the unsavory encounter for her SiriusXM radio show.

She first told her story back in 1998, but recounted it again in the wake of allegations by actress Julianna Margulies that Seagal made similar overtures to her.

"I purposely wore a muumuu to the audition so the casting people would actually look at my face and watch my work". However, McCarthy got bad vibes about the tryout as soon as she arrived as she noticed that no one else was in the casting room.

A former actress said Steven Seagal harassed her on the set of "Out for Justice". And he points at the sofa cushion next to him, saying to me, 'Take a seat. "I'm just really excited to read for this part, and I have so much energy I need to stand'".

You know de Rossi is telling the truth in this case because of the outlet she used.

McCarthy admitted to being alarmed by the obvious ploy. "I worked for two weeks, then they let me go".

"But I so wanted to legitimately read for this part that I wasn't going to give up yet".

"I told him that I wasn't comfortable and began screaming for the wardrobe person". My agent says there's no nudity. After McCarthy tried to continue the audition, Seagal tried one more time asking to see her breasts.

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".

"Go buy my Playboy video - it's on sale for $19.99".

The ordeal wasn't over, though.

She added that her agent was "unfazed" when told of the matter.

"He says, 'Well, there is off-camera nudity, '" she said.

"I was the last girl he saw that day", she said. How many girls had to take off their clothes? "How many girls had to do more?' It just so grossed me out".

Seagal has not responded to the allegations made against him, The Guardian reported.

Seagal requested to go over a movie scene with her in his hotel room. The meeting was ostensibly for casting purposes. "Her claim is completely false", the rep said.
