Alyson Hannigan has a busy life, as an actress, a wife and a mother of two (aged one and three). Not surprisingly, she had no time to spare for a man on the internet who talked about raping and killing her.
A judge agreed that Hannigan should not have to deal with this guy and has granted a restraining order for her, her husband (actor Alexis Denisof) and their two children.
John Hobbs, a 43-year-old New Hampshire resident, has spent the last two months posting "a barrage of threatening messages directed at me and my family on various websites," according to Hannigan's request. He also said he wanted to rape her and take her to "the after-life."
Hobbs was recently released from a mental hospital in his hometown of Nashua, N.H. An officer who responded to the request investigated Hobbs and said that he "seemed to be living in an alternate reality."
Next month the judge will rule on extending the restraining order for three years. Why is it things like this are not forever?
The actress currently stars as Lily on CBS' fantastic How I Met Your Mother.
Hannigan is also well known for her turns as Michelle Flaherty in the American Pie series and Willow Rosenberg on Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
