With news spreading of Sean Young's Schnabel-shushing shenanigans at Saturday night's DGA awards—a story you may have first read about here on Sunday, and that has now achieved critical mass thanks to a lively, first-person retelling by Julie Chen on The Late Show—the spent actress has achieved new rock-bottom depths in the annals of awards season gate-crashing. (Lower even than the time the Blade Runner star sent security on a cat-and-mouse chase throughout the topiaries of the 2006 Vanity Fair Oscar party.) Young has now checked herself into rehab, The Insider is reporting:
THE INSIDER has confirmed that actress Sean Young voluntarily admitted herself yesterday to a rehabilitation center for treatment related to alcoholism. It is understood that Young has struggled against the disease for many years.
Our hearts are with the troubled actress, who'll spend the next long weeks battling her 40-proof demons, and their imprudent suggestions that she fill in for an absent orchestra swell with drunken outbursts whenever awards show speeches threaten to run too long. We'll leave her to her healing, including the composition of a fearless and searching moral inventory that will most likely include the entry, "And I really should never have called Marion Cotillard a 'pute sans talent avec une vilaine bouche comme celle d'une grenouille.' That was just petty."
