Steven Seagal rudely ordered a distraught Jenny MCarthy to strip in his office during a casting call for one of his movies, McCarthy has revealed. "Rent my Playboy video, you asshole," the former Playmate recalled saying before fleeing. "I just started crying." The actress originally bared the ugly confrontation in a 1998 Movieline interview after 9 women accused Seagal of sex harassment, reports CBS News. Seagal is currently the subject of a lawsuit by a former employee charging he held her against her will to sexually assault her.
