Sean Young Rehabs

    There was one way out for Sean Young.


    Following her well-publicized outburst at the Directors Guild of America Awards over the weekend, the No Way Out star checked into an alcohol-treatment program on Monday.
    "Young voluntarily admitted herself yesterday to a rehabilitation center for treatment related to alcoholism," Insignia PR said in a statement Tuesday. "It is understood that Young has struggled against the disease for many years."

    Young's struggles became an unfortunate focal point of the DGA affair Saturday night, when she wound up being tossed out of the ceremony for heckling director Julian Schnabel, a nominee for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

    The embarrassing incident was chronicled in the New York Daily News that the 48-year-old Young was more than a little tipsy when the helmer took to the podium on Saturday night at the Hyatt Regency in Century City to give some brief remarks before the Director's prize was handed out, a privilege accorded all of the nominees.

    Young, who was sitting at Helen Hunt's table close to the stage, reportedly yelled out, "Hurry up with the speech." To which an irritated Schnabel shot back, "Have another cocktail, sweetheart, or would you rather finish my speech for me?"

    The exchange continued until security guards removed Young from the room.
    "The DGA wishes to respect Ms. Young's privacy at this difficult time and declines further comment," the guild said in its own statement Tuesday.

    The episode was reenacted for laughs by Big Brother host Julie Chen during an appearance Monday night on The Late Show with David Letterman.

    Young, who got her start as a model, became one of the biggest female stars of the 1980s after appearing in such films as Stripes, Blade Runner and Wall Street. She was also a sex symbol for a time, thanks to that steamy encounter in a limousine with Kevin Costner in No Way Out.

    Other credits include Cousins, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Fatal Instinct.

    But she was dogged by reports of erratic behavior offscreen that ultimately derailed her career. James Woods filed a harassment lawsuit against her following their work on 1988's The Boost. She was fired by Warren Beatty during the filming of 1990's Dick Tracy. (She later claimed it was because she turned town his advances.) And she tried to win the role of Catwoman in 1992's Batman Returns by parading around Hollywood in a homemade costume.

    Since then, she has appeared in several low-budget and direct-to-video projects, along with guest stints on several TV shows. Last year she appeared on CSI, ER and One Tree Hill, as well as in the Emmy-nominated TV movie Jesse Stone: Sea Change.


    She also tried to sneak into a 2006 Oscar party at the heels of Jennifer Aniston and was escorted out. - caitlin1214
