LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Hollywood filmmaker Julian Schnabel said he bears no ill will toward Sean Young, the actress who heckled him at an awards show last weekend.

Young -- who reportedly was inebriated when she was escorted from the event after interrupting Schnabel's speech at the Directors Guild of America fete Saturday night -- has since checked herself into rehab to deal with her addiction to alcohol.

"It was fine," Schnabel told USA Today. "It was really fine. I'm sorry she got taken out of there. If I had a couple of minutes with her, I could have brought her up on stage and we could have worked it out."

Schnabel directed "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly."

Young is best-known for her roles in "No Way Out" and "Blade Runner."
