Ben Stiller`s strange encounter with female fan

Los Angeles: Actor-filmmaker Ben Stiller says he was once stalked by a female fan who pretended to be a journalist.

The 48-year-old says he started feeling like a part of mystery-thriller `Basic Instinct`, reports

"I once had a strange, stalker-type woman. This was about 10 years ago. She showed up in our production office wanting to say `Hi`, and I thought that was that.

"But then she showed up again, two weeks later, at a press conference, and she`d somehow got hold of a press badge. It was crazy. I felt like I was in `Basic Instinct`. She ended up not killing me though, so that`s good," Stiller told a magazine.
