Jodie Foster's wife, photographer Alexandra Hedison, received a restraining order against a seemingly obsessed woman who appeared uninvited at the couple's Beverly Hills home and in Toronto where the actress was filming.
Hedison, 47, said Celine Martelleur had "repeatedly professed love" for Foster, 54, in emails, TMZ reported Thursday.. In court documents, Hedison charged that Martelleur arrived at their home Dec. 9, but police didn't arrest her because there wasn't a protection order.
The restraining order requires Martelleur to say 100 yards away from Foster, Hedison and their two children – sons Charles, 18, and Kit, 15.
Foster's best-known stalker, John Hinckley Jr., 61, was released from a psychiatric hospital in September, said the New York Daily News. Hinckley attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981 and admitted to an obsession for Foster in writing.
The Mirror said Hinckley was released into the care of his 90-year-old mother and ordered not to contact Foster, the Reagan family or relatives of Reagan's press secretary James Brady, who was paralyzed in the assassination attempt and died in 2014.
Variety reported last month that Foster will star in the crime thriller "Hotel Artemis," the directorial debut of Drew Pearce.
"Casting Jodie Foster is a real coup," Stephen Conrwell, one of the movie's producers, told Variety. "She is an extraordinary talent and will bring something very special to the film. We are delighted to welcome her to this exciting production. Drew's vision is unique and we can't wait to see it brought to life by a stellar cast."
Foster has won two best actress Academy Awards, for her performance in "Silence of the Lambs" in 1992 and "The Accused" in 1989, and was nominated two other times.
