The incident occurred when Akerman and the rest of the cast and crew were shooting filming for a scene on sets of "Stolen" in New Orleans. As the actress returned to her vanity van, she realised her handbag and a few other valuables were missing.

She informed the security team about the theft instantly, but unfortunately the objects could not be recovered, said a source. "It was a strange incident. I never expected such a thing could happen to me. I was distraught the whole day because the bag had my favourite pair of earrings and my music player," Akerman said in a statement.

The actress, who has worked in movies like 'Rock of Ages', 'Watchmen', 'Couples Retreat' and '27 Dresses', stars alongside Nicolas Cage and Josh Lucas in 'Stolen', which is a thriller.  'Stolen' tells the story of a former master-thief who gets involved in a frantic search for his kidnapped daughter.
