Tatum O’Neal, still the youngest person to ever win an Academy Award, said her Oscar is finally back where it belongs — with her!

Ten-year-old Tatum took home the Best Supporting Actress trophy in 1974 for the film “Paper Moon,” performing opposite her now-ailing and no-longer estranged father, Ryan O’Neal.

“Tatum grouses that her father kept possession of her hard-earned trophy,” a pal of the actress told The National ENQUIRER.

“So a few years ago, she snuck into his place when he wasn’t there — and took it!”
