This time they want it to be an immediate success.” In 2013, Sean, now 57, made headlines when she said that she met producers but would not be involved.
Later she told fans to boycott the sequel if she wasn’t in it.
Sean Young began a promising film career by acting in a Merchant-Ivory film Jane Austen in Manhattan (1980) for Academy Award nominated director James Ivory, She followed that up in the comedy hit film Stripes (1981) for Academy Award nominated producer-director Ivan Reitman.
Soon, important directors were casting her in their films, such as Garry Marshall in Young Doctors in Love (1982), Academy Award nominee David Lynch in Dune (1984), and Academy Award nominee Ridley Scott in Blade Runner (1982) in what is her most respected film.
This stunt, too, turned into a public relations mess, and the role of Catwoman went to Michelle Pfeiffer.
Young put on a brave face and gamely moved on to do comedies Fatal Instinct (1993) for director Carl Reiner, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), the latter's box office success made Jim Carrey a star, who immediately landed the role of the Riddler in the Batman sequel.
They settled out of court, but the bad publicity hurt her career very deeply while Woods remained unscathed.
Hollywood producers now saw her as unstable and a loose cannon and stopped considering her for big movies.
However, her other hit film No Way Out (1987), which involved a famous steamy scene in the backseat of a limousine with Kevin Costner, gave her star status.
She was at the height of her fame, which led to her being cast as Vicky Vale in Batman (1989).
She went to rehab for her alcohol problem and also appeared on the reality show "Celebrity Rehab".
