Sandra Bullock - Sandra Bullock Obtains Emergency Restraining Order Against Home Intruder Suspect

Actress Sandra Bullock has obtained an emergency protection order against a man suspected of attempting to break into her Los Angeles home.

Joshua Corbett, 39, was arrested and booked on suspicion of residential burglary after he was allegedly caught trying to gain access to the Gravity star's property early on Sunday morning (08Jun14), hours after she attended the Guys Choice Awards in Culver City, California on Saturday (07Jun14).

A representative for Bullock, who was home at the time of the incident, has assured fans she is "fine" and "unharmed", but the actress has since taken legal action to ensure the suspect doesn't get too close for comfort again.

According to, the Oscar winner, mother to young son Louis, obtained the restraining order shortly after the incident.

Corbett is currently being held on $50,000 (£31,250) bail.

He is not thought to have a history with Bullock, but the actress has reason to be fearful - she has previously been granted permanent restraining orders against overzealous fan Thomas James Weldon, who began harassing her in 2003. She had the court order renewed in 2010 and he was subsequently committed to a mental institution in Wyoming.

Bullock also had to obtain a protective order against another obsessed devotee, Marcia Valentine, in 2007 after the fan dumped pieces of animal fur in the star's backyard and hurled abuse at her then-husband Jesse James when he tried to note her car licence plate.
