Jennifer Garner has obtained a temporary restraining order against a fan who's been stalking her for six years, E! Online reports. The Alias star says the 36-year-old man has grown more and more obsessed, following her around the country and sending reams of correspondence, some of it threatening. He now can't come within 100 yards of her, husband Ben Affleck, or their daughter. Nor can he own a gun.

"He has now shown up at my private residence and has repeatedly expressed his belief that God has sent him a vision of me being persecuted in some manner that might result in my death," says Garner, who hopes to convince a judge to make the order permanent at a hearing tomorrow.
