Sandra Bullock gets restraining order against 'stalker'


Sandra Bullock has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man accused of stalking her since 2003.

The Oscar-winning actress's lawyer obtained the protective order on her behalf against Thomas James Weldon, who has been the subject of previous court orders to stay away from the 45-year-old.

She first obtained a restraining order in California against Weldon in 2003, but it expired in 2009.
