Hollywood life is indeed glamorous. There are the award shows, the work perks, and just the overall recognition that comes with being famous. But then there are the extreme downfalls — like having stalkers.
The 47-year-old actress describes being a stalking victim "as the theft of your life," on the site.
"There's nowhere to go, there's nowhere to run," she said. "It's 24 hours a day. If I go anywhere, which is rare, I go to places that have like, extreme security… I don't go anywhere alone," she explained. "I live by very strict rules. I never say where I'm going. I only say where I've been after I'm not at that place anymore."
Perrette also describes her frustration with reporting her stalker. One policeman even told her that when he approached her, she should have stayed and let him "break her arms" so that they could have done something (like charge the man with a crime). Following her own traumatic events, Perrette is been on a mission to improve the current stalking laws. She wants to make a change to prevent dangerous interactions from happening to anyone else.
"If I can change the law and save someone else's life, it gives me something to the story, other than I'm a stalking victim," she said.
