Sean Young – who was a very big deal in movies like Blade Runner, No Way Out, Wall Street, A Kiss Before Dying, and Ace Ventura – is wanted for questioning by the NYPD after she was allegedly caught on surveillance video stealing laptops video production software.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they were called to the School of Old store, on 36 Avenue in Astoria, Queens, Thursday for a burglary. We’re told employees at the location turned surveillance footage over to cops that allegedly showed Young and a male breaking in and stealing the gear.
Word is, Young had been working at the store, but had recently been fired.
The NYPD confirmed to DailyMail.com that they are seeking Young and the other male suspect, but no arrests have yet been made.
A representative for Young did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Young has long been accused of erratic behavior over the years.
via Daily Mail:
She was arrested for stalking her former lover, actor James Woods, in 1989 after he claims she sent him and his fiancee pictures of corpses and mutilated bodies. She was arrested outside an Oscars party in 2012 after she was accused of slapping a security guard. Young was also escorted out of a Vanity Fair party by security in 2006 after she was caught trying to sneak in behind Jennifer Aniston.
Most famously, she randomly showed up on the Batman Returns set (and later The David Letterman and Joan Rivers Show) in a handmade Catwoman costume after being passed over for the tole by Tim Burton.
Hollywood frowned on that sort of stunty behavior back then, and pretty much turned its back on her after that, although she has consistently worked (most recently appearing in The Alienist).
Young voluntarily went into rehab for treatment of an alcohol problem in January 2008, after she had struggled against addiction for many years.
Very sad. Very sad that she had to work at the School of Old store (pictured below) to begin with. Very sad that she was fired. Very sad she had the rotten idea to go back and steal from them. Very sad Hollywood has been such a bitch to her. Just very sad all around.
