A 27-year-old man was ordered on Tuesday to spend six months in a live-in rehabilitation centre for stalking Hollywood actress Mila Kunis, as well as to keep away from the “Black Swan” star.
Stuart Dunn pleaded no contest to one count of stalking in breach of a restraining order, after being arrested last January for having broken into a vacant condominium owned by Kunis.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge George Lomeli also ordered Dunn to serve five years on probation and issued a protective order to stay away from Kunis, her agents, managers and assistants.
He pleaded no contest last February to unauthorised entry of a dwelling and was ordered to stay away from the 29-year-old actress, but was arrested again last May after turning up three days in a row at the actress's gym.
At a hearing last June detective John Gregozek testified that Kunis had told him she was “scared of Mr. Dunn” and “in fear for her safety,” adding: “She stated that (the) defendant looked like he could eat me.”
Dunn could have faced up to four years in jail if convicted on the original two counts of stalking.
Kunis rose to fame in the comedy “That '70s Show” before launching a film career which has included “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Friends with Benefits,” and “Black Swan.”
She won a Golden Globe in 2011 for best supporting actress in the ballet-themed thriller, whose main star Natalie Portman won the best actress Academy Award.
Kunis also provides the voice of Meg in the animated television comedy “Family Guy.” - Sapa-AFP
