Laurence Fishburne gets restraining order against alleged stalker

By
Laurence Fishburne has taken out a restraining order against a man accused of stalking his family.

Fishburne's wife Gina Torres reportedly called police last week when 42-year-old Anthony Francis arrived at their house and claimed to be the true owner of the family's home.

Francis allegedly demanded that Fishburne "evacuate ASAP" because he wanted to take possession of the house, according to E! News.

Fishburne later filled out a police report, where he wrote: "[Francis] has stalked my residence."

Francis – who has a criminal record – has been ordered to stay 100 feet away from the family ahead of a January 23 hearing.

Fishburne is best known for his roles in Apocalypse Now, Mystic River and The Matrix.

His next project Man of Steel opens on June 14 in the US and the UK. Watch a trailer below:
