Julia Roberts bumps up security

Apr 4 2014, 2:24pm CDT | by

Julia Roberts upgraded the security system at her Malibu mansion after a "crazed stalker" tried to break-in.

The 'August: Osage County' star's team of bodyguards, comprised of all ex-US military, reportedly intercepted the intruder when he tried to gain access to her $9.5 million property in California in January, but he managed to run off before police arrived at the scene.

A neighbor, who witnessed the incident, told gossip website RadarOnline.com: "By the time I got there, the man was just crawling out of the cactus bush outside her property and the security guards were talking to the police. One of them was boasting saying: 'I'm an ex-Marine and I just picked him up and threw him head first in the cactus.'

"The security told me that it was some crazed stalker guy. He was a brave man for even trying to get in her place, as it's swarming with her detail and we have the Sheriff's Department come round every half an hour checking the street.

"The police didn't bother to try and catch him. They talked to the security then left."

Following the incident, Julia, who lives in the property with her husband Daniel Moder, nine-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and six-year-old son Henry, installed more cameras around the property and hired a new guard to prevent other unwanted visitors from getting close to her family.

The neighbor said: "Since that incident, she's had a guy in a blacked out car sat at the end of the cul-de-sac monitoring the comings and goings of the road. She's got cameras everywhere over her property, including two inside her gate. She's obviously determined for this not to happen again."

18 Classic Movie Lines & Scenes That Were TOTALLY Unscripted!

Sep 15 2014 5:46pm CDT | Source: Perez Hilton

Sorry, Hollywood screenwriters. Sometimes the best lines in films AREN’T the ones you wrote down in the script! In fact, some of the most famous scenes in movies are completely improvised on the set! An actor will do or say something that just feels right and… Ta da! Cinema magic! Like Heath Ledger in his posthumous Oscar-winning role as The Joker in The Dark Knight. No one instructed Heath to applaud like he did while Commissioner Gordon’s promotion was announced at Got ...

The competition for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series was intensely fierce - so much so that even presenter Julia Roberts couldn't believe the list of great performances that were battling against one another.

Sofia Vergara, Julia Roberts, Michelle Dockery & Amanda Peet Red Carpet Pics From 2014 Emmys!

Aug 26 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

The actresses are always much more, well, sedate, than the singers, so it’s no surprise that the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet didn’t have the fashion risks we saw at the 2014 MTV VMAs. Yet what was similar to the VMAs was that there was no clear red carpet trend, either. Everyone went with their own style. It’s fun to see the ‘Orange is the New Black’ ladies outside of their prison garb! We have TONS of pi ...
