Police told The Hollywood Reporter that Joshua Corbett was booked for residential burglary after officers responded to a call sometime after 6:30 a.m. Sunday. Without identifying the home, police said the man was attempting to break into a residence at the 1200 block of Angelo Drive in Beverly Hills. Corbett was being held on $150,000 bail, the magazine said.

The incident involved what LAPD public information Officer Nuria Vanegas called a "hot prowler." Multiple reports have said the actress was at home at the time of the incident.

KNBC News said that because of the "Gravity" actress' celebrity status, police were investigating whether the man might be a stalker.

The night before, Bullock had attended Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards in Los Angeles, where the 49-year-old star was presented with the network's Decade of Hotness award. "Decade of Hotness . . . My question was, 'What decade?' " the star joked. "I have several under my belt. It should really be Decade of Hot Mess -- that I can own, and I do that well and I'm still convinced I'm up here because someone dropped out and they needed someone quickly and we know I'm home on Saturdays."

Film stars Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey and Keanu Reeves gave speeches honoring the actress, whose next movie role is voicing would-be super-villainess Scarlet Overkill in the animated "Minions," a spinoff of the "Despicable Me" franchise. The awards ceremony airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Spike.
