NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City woman has pleaded guilty to stalking "The Dark Night Rises" actress Marion Cotillard.

Teresa Yuan pleaded guilty Friday in Brooklyn Federal Court. Prosecutors say she sent 504 emails and 120 webcam videos of herself to a Cotillard fan website over four days in 2011.

In some of the videos shown in court, Yuan appears to be topless, hisses like a cat and discusses playing Russian Roulette. Her lawyer said he agrees the videos could seem threatening.

The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/TOhkYD ) the 32-year-old Queens resident told a judge that she's undergoing psychiatric treatment for bipolar disorder.

The charge carries a sentence of up to 16 months in prison, but her lawyer says prosecutors have indicated they wouldn't object to a sentence of probation and psychological treatment.
