Sandra Bullock has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man accused of stalking her since 2003.

Thomas James Weldon has been ordered not to contact the actress, 45, at any of her homes or on movie sets. A further hearing is set for 6 August.

A previous restraining order obtained in 2003 ran out in 2009.

He told doctors treating him at a Wyoming hospital last month that he had driven from Tennessee to try to meet Bullock at her home in Jackson Hole.

The restraining order also seeks to protect Louis Bardo Bullock, the seven-month-old baby that the actress is in the process of adopting.

In previous court filings, Weldon has been accused of repeatedly trying to contact Bullock and following her around the country to try to meet her.

According to court documents, Bullock has never met Weldon.
