Scroll through to see some of celebrities who've been in these perilous situations.
Legendary film director Steven Spielberg had a frightening incident with a stalker back in the late '90s.
Johnathan Norman was arrested in 1997 after attempting to enter Spielberg's property twice. At the time of his arrest, authorities found handcuffs, duct tape, a razor knife and lists of Spielberg's family and friends with him.
Upon further investigation, police found that Norman had planned to kill the E.T. director and his family and possibly commit sexual acts against them.
Norman was sentenced to 25 years in prison for his plot.
"Had Jonathan Norman actually confronted me, I genuinely, in my heart of hearts, believe that I would have been raped or maimed or killed," Spielberg said in court. "If he's out on the street, I will live in fear. I place myself in your hands. The prospect that Jonathan Norman might have another opportunity to carry out his threats is beyond frightening to me."
Sandra Bullock once came face to face with a deranged stalker.
As she left the bathroom on June 8, 2015, she saw James Corbett in her home. She was luckily able to hide in the closet and call 911.
Authorities discovered that Corbett was obsessed with the Academy Award winner and had a journal chronicling his love for her, his desire to have sex with her and details of her home security. He apparently also had a stash of illegal assault weapons.
Among Corbett's obsessive actions, he wrote the actress a love letter about how he wanted to be in her life.
"You could of had me today however you choose other people over me," Corbett wrote. "I'll be around as you know. I love you. I love you and Louie and only want to be part of your lifes (sic). I saw you come home after the AFI gala and only wished I was at the entrance to your heart when you came home."
A group of men plotted to kill Justin Bieber back in 2012 before being thwarted by authorities.
New Mexico inmate Dana Martin orchestrated the plan to kill the "Sorry" singer from behind bars for 978 years worth of murders and sexual assaults. He was apparently obsessed with Bieber and was upset when the star didn't respond to his correspondents.
"This perceived slight made Mr. Martin upset and that, coupled with Mr. Martin's perception of being a 'nobody' in prison, led him to begin plotting the kidnap and murder of (Bieber)," authorties said at the time.
The outside parties Martin had contacted to pull off the hit had instructions to kill two men in Vermont before heading to New York City to kill Bieber and his bodyguard. Luckily, the two men, who were Martin's relatives, were arrested when they accidentally crossed the border into Canada.
Another musician that was the target of a strange assassination attempt was Mick Jagger.
The Rolling Stones' frontman became public enemy number one for a group of Hell's Angels back in 1969.
The bikers were angry that Jagger and his bandmates placed the blame for the murder of Meredith Hunter on the group. The Hell's Angels were hired as security at the bands' Altamont Speedway Free Concert, where the murder occurred.
Apparently the group planned to storm Jagger's Hampton home from the shore, which had minimal security, and kill him. However, a storm capsized their boat as they approached the home, and they scrapped their plans.
Chef Gordon Ramsey faced a scary situation in 2011 as he was filming the investigative documentary series Big Fish Fight.
