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.
Sean Young got People on
a stolen iPhone the horn and gave them an official statement. No, really, she thought she was taking her own shit.
“I was scheduled to retrieve my belongings from an apartment where I had been previously staying while working together with [Charlie Boy] Director Timothy Hines and Producer Dominick Martini. I was expected and had confirmed my expected arrival with the building’s owner. When I arrived nobody was there to receive me but the door was unlocked and I assumed it had been left open so that I could pick up my belongings.
I gathered what I believed to be my property but later discovered I was mistaken. I have contacted Dominick Martini to arrange for the 2 laptops to be returned and to pick up my 2 laptops at their earliest convenience.”
Sean says she hasn’t been contacted by the police, but the NYPD says that she’s still being sought for questioning. The stolen items total around $12,000.
As someone who’s been fired before (why are you all nodding knowingly like it all makes sense now), I’m familiar with the concept of cleaning out your desk. You box up a few pics, some office supplies you’re stealing out of bitterness, and that one Cup O’ Noodles you never got around to eating. Two laptops would be pretty noticeable in the printer paper box of sadness with which you’re shamefully staggering away. The film’s producers agree with me, and they’re not buying that story.
Asked if they believed the burglary was some kind of revenge, Kritikos and Martini said it would be speculation on their part.
“Whatever she’s doing, she took property that did not belong to her,” said Kritikos, also a Charlie Boy producer.
Martini added: “None of us have any idea what went through that person’s head. … If you’re asking me, Did she just want to hurt us? What would you think?”
The film’s producers say that she was fired as the director of Charlie Boy because she was “out of her depth.” That’s ridiculous. Judging by some of her past decisions, Sean would appear to be comfortable at ANY depth.
