Jaime King is getting some protection from an overenthusiastic subject.
The Sin City star has revealed to E! News that she has recently become the victim of an alleged stalker, with a source adding that police have already been called in to run interference in the situation.
"It's scary because all of a sudden you realize that like, you know, my intention with the work that I do is to create something that really touches in to people and that people love," she said.
"It's really strange when somebody takes that to a whole different level."
Strange, but not incomprehensible.
"I think that an interesting thing with celebrities and stars is that you feel so close to them because you see them in such a vulnerable place when they're acting," she added. "It's just really interesting when things like that happen. It's kind of freaky."
A source close to the actress told E! News that police were called in and proper measures to protect the actress have already been initiated.
"It's very real and he was very aggressive," the source said. "He had recently escaped from a mental institute. It was scary."
The man's identity has not been disclosed.
