Typically, when you learn that John Wick is coming your way, you're completely out of luck. If 2014's John Wick and its high-wire 2017 sequel, John Wick: Chapter Two, taught us anything, it's that the title character doesn't mess around. When he's on a mission, he'll do whatever it takes to get the job done. Ready or not, he's coming for you.
But when Natalie Portman learned that someone with the same name was chasing her tail, she came up with an idea to track him down: a restraining order. Indeed, Portman has filed a restraining order against a man who claims he's "John Wick." And if fortune favors the bold, Portman might've found the way to defeat the impervious assassin -- or, at least, someone who likes to share the hit man's name.
As it was reported by The Blast, Natalie Portman had an unwanted encounter with a man who went by the name "John Wick." Though, of course, few face-to-face correspondences with John Wick are ever wanted. The unknown individual made an effort to enter Portman's gated community, and it did not take long before the police found themselves at the residence, asking questions. While the real name of the man is known, thanks to the police reports, the publication has opted to keep that information withheld. That said, the unspecified individual has a history with trying to receive firearms. And he earned a restraining order against such weapons requests from the Los Angeles Police Department. That definitely spells trouble.
Thankfully, Natalie Portman appears to be unharmed and hopefully out of danger from this mysterious and worrisome individual. With that said, the restraining order has not been formally granted yet. It's still up to the courts, but it does sound like the award-winning actress has a good case. If someone tries to meet up with you and they identified themselves as a lethal one-man army of destruction, you would probably be pretty hesitant to ever make contact with them again. But right now, the legal restraint is currently up in the air.
Unwanted interactions with worrisome individuals is unfortunately a common problem when you are a celebrity. And famous folks have been forced to get restraining orders against concerning people in the past. Natalie Portman is just the latest high-profile person forced to go to drastic measures in order to keep herself and her family safe. But it's not every day that you write about a celebrity fearing about their safety from the likes of a person who goes by "John Wick."
Hopefully, Natalie Portman is able to find some peace after this unsettling interaction. Goodness knows, you would probably have a little bit of trouble sleeping at night if you heard John Wick was coming after you.
