Earlier this year, Halle Berry had a stalker scare when a man scaled her fence and made his way onto her property. The police arrived; he was gone. The next day, she looked out of her kitchen window only to find the same strange man staring back at her.
Pretty fucking terrifying, right? But that guy just breaks the ice when it comes to scary celebrity stalkers. Here are a few of the craziest.
It’s no surprise that Catherine Zeta-Jones would have a stalker; she’s hot as hell. But this wasn’t what you might think.
Dawnette Knight was a 32-year-old obsessed with Michael Douglas. She loved him so much, she became jealous over his marriage to CZJ. Her solution? She sent a letter to Zeta-Jones threatening to “slice her up like meat on a bone and feed her to the dogs.”
Of course, the batshit crazy woman was sentenced to three years in jail.
Dante Michael Soiu was a 51 year-old pizza deliveryman who was obsessed with Gwyneth back in 2000. He left hundreds of letters, as well as packages of porn and pizza, outside her parents’ home. As exciting as free porn and pizza may be, the gesture was not appreciated. He was later declared legally insane and sent to a high-security psychiatric hospital.

Diana Napolis thought Jennifer Love Hewitt was controlling her mind. She also thought Steven Spielberg and his wife were members of a satanic cult who had implanted a microchip in her brain in an attempt to “catch her soul.” According to her, Spielberg ran the cult from his basement.

Napolis was ordered to stay away from both Spielberg and Hewitt for at least 10 years, and she was also placed on probation.

Hinckley became enamored with Foster after seeing her in Taxi Driver. He first tried to get her attention by attempting to shoot Jimmy Carter. That failed, but he did manage to put a bullet into the newly elected Ronald Reagan.
He was arrested and, to this day, is in a psychiatric ward in Washington. It doesn’t get creepier than saying “I love you” by shooting a president.
Last year, a strange man broke into the home of Celine Dion and her husband Rene Angelil. What did he do—steal her panties? Try on her bras? Jerk off to her family photos? Nah, he just took a bath. Not quite as creepy, but still pretty fucking crazy.
“He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath,” the police said. “He even managed to eat some pastry that was in the
Honorable Mention: Selena Gomez
While this guy seems mostly harmless, I think his creepiness is still worth mentioning.
Some highlights from his spiel:
“Selena Gomez–totally in control of me? Yes.”
“I am head over heels in love with her…She came along in my life right when I needed her most.”
“She guides me and has never told me wrong yet.”
“Get it? It’s like she can read my mind or something.”
Oh, and in case you were wondering:
