The Daily Beast interviewed the 61-year-older actress with films including Scott’s Blade Runner and Spielberg’s Dune on Monday, who had said that a well-known director had derailed her career by marking her hard work.
Sean Young calls out big names and is aware of the harmful surroundings she worked with during her early career. She added that 60’s movies star- Warren Beatty was a member and that ‘Spielberg was another’ she had worked with at the Dick Tracy in the ’90s before her role was replaced.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, the 61-year old actress from Ace Ventura and Blade Runner and Dune’s original films opens up the possibility of her career being derailed by certain directors who are unfamiliar with her.
She was labeled “difficult” by her male co-stars and directors and was soon blacklisted from major movies with her emergence in the middle of her emerging career.
While Sean always felt that she was straightforward and down-to-earth with other people, she now realizes she could have been “offensive.” She shared, “That wasn’t my purpose. “When I started to get pissed off later, I just got offensive, like, ‘It’s serious. That’s my job. You’re not only blacklisting me.” This is awful.” It isn’t very good.
After performing together in The Boost, Sean remembered a situation with James Woods. He filed a harassment proceeding against her after the premiere, and he did not know why at the time. Later, Sean finally won the suit. During the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Sean Young portrayed few toxic men in Hollywood. Warren Beatty and Steven Spielberg were those mentioned two directors.
Sean also does not believe that Warren was the worst, adding, “The sleepy or hard part I think is that he probably thought that he treated me well. Do you know what I say? What should I say? It’s not simply Warren — the whole thing is. Women have been treated as commodities since the movie business started. Somebody always grabbed you, and I just ignored it.
She remembered when Harvey exposed himself to her at the Love Crimes set, saying, “I wouldn’t pull it out because it isn’t nice. Put away that little thing.”
“And you must remember somebody gross, who they’re inside,” Sean added. “I think his plan for the game was, ‘Be as strong as I can to be laid out.’ It’s just as simple as most people’s plans are. It’s not getting much deeper.”
In Blade Runner, Sean recalled Harrison Ford’s aggressive love scene, and she was confident that it was because Ridley wanted it. “Ridley, ‘f*** you, I think.” I thought, ‘Why should this be? I thought,’ What did this mean?’ And I believe it was a none-too-subtle message from Ridley that it even got with me.” She formed part of the Blade Runner sequela and came only for 30 seconds.
Wasn’t that filled with s*?” Sean says that. “And I couldn’t do anything about it. They knew that I was not there but that they didn’t want me to b* publicly on that. The audience would be upset. They paid me some money, signed a non-divulgation contract, and gave me thirty seconds. And I’ve been like, okay.”
It adds that “They gave Quinn my son a work… in the arts, and I said that everything was forgiven. He has great abilities.” There was a man who stood out but was not so used to being part of Jim Carrey’s toxicity.
They performed Lt Lois Einhorn, aka Ray Finkle, together in Ace Ventura (Pet Detective). “He is the only leader who has ever done this for me. In Jim, he said, ‘No, no, no, no, no. Everything that you hear is bullshit. She’s awesome.” Now, Rain Beau’s End is currently starring her in an indie movie.
