Like Pauley Perrette herself, I am grateful she was not seriously hurt, or worse, in the attack on her in Hollywood yesterday.
It’s easy to feel that stars lead charmed lives, but we all have to go out, and are all at some risk of bad things happening. For her to have been attacked so near her home will make it harder for her in future. She has to go out, but I can see it might make her think twice. It’s a vicious circle.
As for her attacker, who seems to be homeless and mentally ill, it is particularly ironic that he went for someone like Pauley who is actively working to make things better for people in his situation.
And I’m relieved it didn’t happen while Daughter was still in Hollywood, as she was only a week ago.
