A woman has plead guilty to stalking Marion Cotillard online

A New York City woman has been sentenced to probation for stalking actress Marion Cotillard on the Internet.

Teresa Yuan was sentenced in the Brooklyn federal court after pleading guilty last autumn.

Prosecutors said Yuan sent 504 emails and 120 webcam videos of herself to a Cotillard fan website in 2011.

The 32-year-old woman is being treated for bipolar disorder. The Daily News reported Judge William Kuntz warned her to stay on her medications.

In addition, the judge said she is allowed to use only one device with access to the Internet for easier monitoring by authorities.

In videos shown in court Yuan appears to be topless, hisses like a cat and discusses playing Russian roulette.

Yuan says she never meant to scare anybody.
