Sandra Bullock’s recent encounter with a stalker in her home reads like a scene from a scary movie in newly released documents, painting a portrait of an obsessed fan who described himself as her “husband.” Joshua James Corbett was later found to have a stash of illegal weapons at his home. Investigators said the actress was awakened at 6:30 a.m. June 8 by banging, opened her bedroom door and saw a stranger near the stairs. Bullock quickly locked the door and called 911. Corbett, who scaled the gates and forced open a sunroom door, remains in jail awaiting trial.
