LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Sean Young reportedly has checked herself into rehab two days after causing a ruckus at the Directors Guild of America Awards ceremony.

Young, who starred in "No Way Out" and "Blade Runner," is being treated for alcoholism, People.com said.

"It is understood that Young has struggled against the disease for many years," the actress' representative said in a statement.

Young was escorted out of the DGA Awards gala in Los Angeles Saturday night after she heckled "La Vie en Rose" star Marion Cotillard and taunted Julian Schnabel, the director of "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," while he was speaking on stage, the New York Post said.
