You might not know Laine Kazan’s name right off the bat, but you will certainly recognize her face and her voice, as she is a character actor who lights up the screen with her energy. Kazan was one of the main characters in one of the highest-grossing romantic comedies to come out of Hollywood and she was arrested Christmas Eve for stealing $ 180 worth of food from a supermarket, reports Fox News.
Who can forget the loud and somewhat obnoxious mother-in-law to be in the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding and in the sequel, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2? Her role as Mama Portokalos was a memorable one for sure.
Kazan, who is 77-years-old, was stopped at her car by a Gelson’s Supermarket employee after walking out of the store with the shoplifted food. The police were called and she was arrested in Los Angeles on Sunday, which was Christmas Eve.
