Last week, Sean Young got caught stealing two Apple laptops with video-editing software (total value: $12,000) on them from a production company in Queens, NY. Sean later claimed that she wasn’t stealing, she was just retrieving her own belongings. I was really hoping this situation would resolve itself during a visit to Judge Judy, because stolen property messiness is second only to doggy drama. But it’s not going to, because Page Six says that Sean has returned the laptops.
Sean Young is a potent mash-up of fallen Hollywood fallen glamour, outspoken back-from the-brink feminist, and my ex-sister-in-law’s mom who would go to the Christmas tree lot every December and actually switch the tags on the trees so she could get the nicer one but not have to pay as much for it.
Yesterday, Sean was accused stealing two laptops and some video production software from the production office of a movie from which she was fired. Sean’s admitting she took the swag (there’s even video footage via TMZ below). However, she’s claiming she thought they were hers. That’s exactly what my ex-sister-in-law’s mom must have done when she tried to walk out of the Christmas tree lot with an 8 ft. Douglas fir at a Charlie Brown tree price.
Anytime the name “Sean Young” graces my inbox, Twitter feed, RSS feed, etc…, I perk up like Sean Young whenever she sees the name “Sean Young” on a headline. But while I’m hoping to see headlines like “Sean Young Lands 8-Figure Deal To Play Her Dream Role Of Catwoman” or “Sean Young Lands 8-Figure Deal To Star In A Bravo Docu-Series Called ‘Forever Young””, her most recent headlines are usually about her busting out some messy antics. Today’s Sean Young story is no exception. Sean Young has been accused of snatching up some Apple laptops and video production equipment from a place in Queens she used to work at. I nearly screamed my tonsil skin off from thinking about how bland pieces of rutabaga meat like Marky Mark and Ryan Reynolds are making millions upon millions of dollars from acting while legends like Sean Young has to pay her bills by working at a Best Buy in Queens. But she allegedly stole from the office of a production company she was working with.
Hollywood… Might as well call it Hollyweird! It’s a tough town if you don’t shut up and play by the rules. Just ask Hollyweird ex-communicado extraordinaire, Sean Young! Sean was one of Hollyweird’s brightest rising stars back in the 80s – and is still a huge A-List star here at DListed – but then got iced out after a series of decisions that, frankly, should have made her the biggest star of all time! She gave her all at trying to get the part of Catwoman in Batman Returns, got fired from Dick Tracy, got replaced in the first Batman movie after breaking her arm and has more recently appeared on Celebrity Rehab and Skating with Celebrities. How all of this doesn’t make her the top actress and head of every studio I have no idea.
The Catwoman that never was sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about her heyday, her reputation and what it was like being a lady with a loud mouth and an opinion in 80s Hollywood. I know a lot of people might read the interview with the word “DELUSIONAL” popping out at them repeatedly, and there are some very “what? what are you talking about?” moments, but it’s overall pretty incredible. To some, Sean was a mess of epic proportions but to her, she was just doing her job and standing up for herself! Occasionally in a latex catsuit. In public. Or on a studio lot, uninvited.
Nearly 33 years – THIRTY-THREE YEARS, by the way – after the release of one of the sexiest sci-fi movies every made (just me? Okay then), Variety is confirming that a sequel to Blade Runner is happening and it will star sexy salt and pepper pep-pep Harrison Ford. Don’t worry, I’ll wait while you finish screaming “Hollywood has OFFICIALLY run out of ideas.”
Ridley Scott won’t be back to direct Blade Runner 2: Electric Replicant Boogaloo, so he’ll be replaced with French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve. The script has been written by one of the original screenwriters, and Harrison Ford claims it’s “the best thing (he’s) ever read.” Sure, Jan; that’s what everybody says when there’s a giant dump truck full of cash backing into their driveway. NO! I’m sure it will be as good as the original. Plus, bringing back Harrison Ford back will finally answer the question of whether or not Deckard was a human or a replicant, because I don’t remember any scenes from Blade Runner featuring any old-looking replicants complaining about their hip joints or high cholesterol.
Normally a sequel getting the green light 33 years after the original would be the definition of a disaster, but this movie is going to be great for two reasons:
1. If Harrison Ford agreed to do a late-in-life version of Indiana Jones, a late-in-life version of Han Solo, and now a late-in-life version of Rick Deckard, then that means there’s a very good chance he might also agree to do a late-in-life version of Jack Trainer in a sequel to Working Girl. Somebody PLEASE get working on that.
2. THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF SEAN YOUNG! Sean Young better be in the Blade Runner sequel. After all, Harrison Ford said the script was the best thing he’s ever read, and he definitely wouldn’t have said that if it didn’t include a hue part for that A-list ball of crackpot crazy.
Charlize Theron is an Oscar-winning actress, gets dozens of scripts thrown at her weekly, is considered gorgeous to many and is still relevant. Sean Young was in Blade Runner over 30 years ago, threw whatever dignity she had left to the side to shamelessly try to get the role of Catwoman, got fired from Dick Tracy, was on Celebrity Rehab and came in last place on Skating with Celebrities. So it is mind-bogglingly crazy that Ridley Scott would cast Charlize Theron in Prometheus instead of THEE Sean Young! If you detected even a drop of sarcasm in that sentence, then you need to get your sarcasm detector fixed, because I am serious.
Sean Young knows that she’s hot shit and at the premiere of her movie Jug Face, she told Entertainment Tonight that her Blade Runner director Ridley Scott should’ve cast her in Prometheus instead of that basic ho Charlize Theron.
“I am going to say this on the record – why in the hell does Ridley Scott have Charlize Theron in that part instead of me? It’s like she was bored out of her mind, you can see it, and it’s like oh my god! That would have been really good for me, right? It would have been a nod to people who like Blade Runner, it would have been like, ‘See, I’m using Sean again,’ right? Nah.”
Sean also recently said that when she heard Ridley was making another Blade Runner movie, she started calling his office and he hasn’t called her back. If Ridley doesn’t cast Sean in it, she thinks we should all boycott it.
I mean, what in the hell do you say to all of that?! When Sean Young is right, Sean Young is right! Charlize Theron might be hot, but Sean Young is so fucking hot. Sean Young just doesn’t give a shit and she hasn’t given a shit since before some of us were born. She don’t care! She is an iconic mess and anybody who has seen her delicately exquisite website (complete with a PayPal donation link) knows this is a fact.
