Video: Julian Schnabel hates Sean Young



Surely you’re bursting from anticipation wondering what exactly happened at Saturday’s Director’s Guild of America awards that prompted actress Sean Young to check into rehab for alcohol abuse. That’s why we have video of the event, courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter.

In it, Julian Schnabel walks onstage to accept his award for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and collects his thoughts. Young can be heard yelling “Get on with it!”, to which Schnabel responds “Who said that to me?” Upon seeing Young, he says, “Have another cocktail,” before she shouts something else.

Variety says security tried to grab Sean, who then tried to punch the people coming to get her. Obviously upset, Schnabel says, “Perhaps you’d like to finish my speech, darling. Thank you,” and leaves the stage.

What we’re trying to figure out is why anyone would invite Young to anything after that whole episode in which she showed up at Tim Burton’s place wearing a Catwoman outfit, trying to be cast in Batman Returns.
