Eight years ago, a man who had been stalking Miranda Cosgrove reportedly lit himself on fire and fatally shot himself in her yard after shooting at a woman driving by because he thought it was the actress. Cosgrove was 22 at the time and still doesn’t “feel super safe in that house.”

“That’s another reason why I go back and forth to my parents’ house so much,” she admitted. “For two years after it happened, I wouldn’t really stay there … Then I got into a relationship and because that person was there with me, I was less scared. But I don’t really like being there on my own that much.”

She shared that the woman who’d been shot at was at an event she hosted years later, and came up to her to say, “I didn’t know if I should tell you this here or how to say this, but I’m actually the girl that was at your house and got shot at.”

“She seemed like she processes things in a similar way that I do,” Cosgrove said. Her philosophy can basically be summed up as “If you didn’t laugh, you’d have to cry.”

“When anything really scary or crazy happens, I always try to find a way to laugh about it. It’s kind of a way of processing it and getting over it without it getting to you too much.”

She said it’s a “huge goal” to find a home where she feels “really safe” and like she can “start a new chapter,” but that hasn’t happened yet.
