Actress Sean Young checked into an alcohol-treatment program on Monday, just days after an outburst at Directors Guild of America Awards.
“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 apparent when she heckled director Julian Schnabel, a nominee for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, at the Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday. Her drunken chatter ended with her being booted out of the ceremony.
