Jennifer Aniston has been granted a temporary restraining order against a man who authorities claim traveled across the country to try to marry her.

Jason R. Peyton, 24, was detained last week after he spent days trying to find Aniston, 41, on Sunset Boulevard. On him: A sharp object, duct tape and love notes to the actress.

"Mr. Peyton has aggressively sought to have personal contact with me and integrate himself into my life," she said in a signed court declaration.

"Due to Mr. Peyton's delusional compulsion and increasingly harassing, stalking and threatening conduct, I have been subjected to a course of conduct which has and is seriously alarming, annoying and harassing me.

"Mr. Peyton's ongoing, ever-increasing, aggressive and harassing conduct are extremely distressing. I fear for my personal safety and that of those around me," her statement concluded.

According to court documents filed Tuesday, Peyton -- who is now on an involuntary psychiatric hold by Los Angeles police -- had been accused of stalking others and is disobeying court orders that he must take anti-psychotic medications.

A hearing is set for Aug. 9.
