Brad Pitt Attacked At Movie Premiere
Actor gets hit in the face by renowned ‘prankster’ at Maleficent premiere...
Vitalii Sediuk is a Ukrainian-born guerrilla prankster who, for reasons known only to him, has declared war on the celebrity red carpet - and last night at the Maleficent premiere in LA, he struck again.
Brad Pitt was signing autographs outside the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood whilst Angelina Jolie greeted fans elsewhere. Sediuk jumped over the barrier, a violent altercation took place, and Pitt got hit in the face. Security guards were on the scene in a matter of seconds, and the prankster was bundled to the ground, cuffed, and taken away.
Although it is understood that the actor wasn’t badly harmed, his attacker was arrested for misdemeanor battery and kept in police custody where he is currently being held pending payment of $20,000 bail.
Sediuk’s other victims include America Ferrera, whose skirt he tried to put his head under at the premiere of How To Train Your Dragon 2, Bradley Cooper and Leonardo Di Caprio, who both got his face in their crotch, and Will Smith, who was almost landed with a big smacker on the lips, but neatly deflected it with a slap.
Vitalii is understood to be a journalist, but it’s not understood what story angle he's going for.
