She should stalk Joan Cusack.
I think Joan would appreciate the (any) attention.

I think that this woman should stay in jail after what she had done. Because she was breaking the law & stalking an actor I think she deserves to be in jail pretty longer & not let out until she obey's the laws.

This is an interesting article. Its a shame that the stalking of men is taken so much less seriously than the stalking of women. Almost 90% of stalking victims are women, but men that are stalking victims are in just as much danger. It is suspected that the percentage of men that are really stalked is grossly underreported (like male rape) because of sterotypes and assumptions that men can take care of themselves.

Women that are stalked are usually stalked by former lovers, husband, and boyfriends. Men that are stalked are usually followed by women that they have never meet, mentally ill women that imagine a relationship or fantasy that exists only in their head. They are dangerous and violent when cornered or rejected.

When women are stalked, they are usually the sole target but when men are stalked, a female stalker usually goes after the man's family, co-workers and supervisors, and friends. More people are put in direct danger when an individual is stalked by a female.

There can be many differences of stalking behavior between male and female victims, but the level of danger is the same. We need to stop making assumptions about men's masculinity and safety. We need to stop applying double standards and taking mens' complaints seriously. No one would ever think it was funny or comical to see a female charcter on tv harrassed and stalked in her home or drugged and molested by the stalker. But if the character is a man, its comedy.(See 2 and a half men.)

This isn't funny and it isn't acceptable, even if he is a man and a celebrity.

A stalker story and you list the stalkee's address. You are a handy information reference for non-resourceful stalkers everywhere.

This is why celebs stick to hookers.

They don't pay them to come over, they pay them to leave.

Sorry about they typo above.

I meant that we need to take mens' complaints just as seriously as womens'

And before someone dissects my post, I am qualified to make these statements as I am an HR manager and a former stalking victim myself. I'm also a woman.

Wow, that is irresponsible to publish his address! I'm a fan, but I'd never approach someone's home like that! Doesn't matter who's doing the stalking, male or female. Celebrity stalking (as well as non-celebrity) can have fatal consequences. The deaths of John Lennon and Rebecca Schaeffer are certainly reminders of that.
