New York Daily News - - NEWS - URA SUS­PECT!

YPop star turned ac­tress Natali Yura found her­self in an off-cam­era drama while shoot­ing her new ac­tion film “Reprisal” along­side Bruce

Wil­lis and Olivia Culpo. We’re told that Yura, who plays an ar­mored car guard in the flick, ap­proached two po­lice of­fi­cers in Cincinnati to do some char­ac­ter re­search when she be­came the one be­ing in­ter­ro­gated.

“It was 10 o’clock and there was no one on the street when she ap­proached the of­fi­cers,” says a source close to the sit­u­a­tion. We’re told Yura (in­set), who’d just fin­ished film­ing a vi­o­lent scene, ap­peared tat­tered and bruised and was ask­ing ques­tions about crime and law en­force­ment when the po­lice asked why she had a black eye.

“She started to get ner­vous — they turned the ta­bles on her,” we’re told. It seemed the of­fi­cers had a hard time be­liev­ing Yura was do­ing re­search and per­sisted to ask the out-oftowner why she was out on the oth­er­wise des­o­late street look­ing like any­thing but a movie star. “She made a hur­ried ex­pla­na­tion and fled down the block to her lux­ury ho­tel,” ac­cord­ing to our in­sider.

Yura, who’d been film­ing with Wil­lis all day, ran into the of­fi­cers af­ter pick­ing up din­ner on her way back to the 21c Mu­seum Ho­tel, where she’d been stay­ing. She splits her time be­tween L.A. and Europe and will likely visit New York when “Reprisal” opens in the spring. This isn’t the first time the 26-year-old per­former has found her­self at odds with law en­force­ment agents. In 2014, Yura cast “A Bronx Tale” star Lillo Bran­cato in the mu­sic video for her Bill­board dance hit “Scream for Love.” It was the con­tro­ver­sial ac­tor’s first gig af­ter be­ing sprung from prison, where he’d served eight years for his part in a Bronx rob­bery that led to the killing of NYPD Of­fi­cer Daniel En­chautegui.

Yura re­sponded to the crit­i­cism on Face­book, where she called En­chautegui a “fallen hero” and re­ferred to Bran­cato as an “ex­traor­di­nar­ily tal­ented ac­tor who made a very se­ri­ous mis­take.”
