Arrest warrant for Pitt 'stalker'
Brad Pitt in Fight Club
Fight Club star Pitt was not at home when Rolando went to his home
A 3,000 arrest warrant has been issued for a woman convicted of trespassing at movie heart-throb Brad Pitt's Hollywood home.

The move comes after Athena M Rolando twice failed to appear for a court hearing to update her progress in psychological counselling.

Rolando, 21, was arrested last year after climbing through a window in Pitt's home.

The 36-year-old actor, whose last movie was Fight Club, was away at the time.

Rolando was discovered dressed in Pitt's clothes by a caretaker.

She was allegedly found wearing a blue hat, green sweatshirt, black tracksuit trousers and shoes belonging to Pitt.

Counselling

Rolando, an aspiring actress from Billings, Montana, pleaded no contest to trespassing charges in February 1999 after her arrest in January.

She was placed on three years probation and ordered to undergo psychological counselling in connection with the incident.

Police found her carrying a book on witchcraft along with a note to Pitt and a large safety pin decorated with ribbons that she said was a doll.

She told police officers that she had spent about 10 hours in Pitt's home and had put on his clothes because she was cold.

Pitt, who is currently seeing Friends star Jennifer Aniston, will next be seen in Ocean's Eleven - a remake of the 1960 film of the same name that starred Frank Sinatra.
