Brad Pitt Punched at 'Maleficient' Premiere: Hollywood 'Prankster' Strikes Again
Brad Pitt strolled the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Angelina Jolie's latest movie, "Maleficent," when someone jumped the barrier and hit him.
A spokeswoman for Pitt said the man "leapt over the barrier and made contact with Brad Pitt.
Vitalii Sediuk, 25, was the man responsible for the incident. The journalist quickly found himself face down over a barrier, where his checkered underwear showed. The Ukrainian man faced a misdemeanor charge and is being held on $20,000 bail.
These "pranks" are not new for Sediuk.
He's had a busy May. Just this month, he tried to get under America Ferrera's dress at the Cannes Film Festival screening of "How to Train a Dragon 2," notes New York Daily News. He also wore a string bikini, similar to the one Borat wore, to streak at the Met Gala.
His first prank of the year was when he grabbed Bradley Cooper's crotch at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January. He tried the same thing with Leonardo DiCaprio a month later at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
He even joined Adele onstage at the 2013 Grammys. He spent the night in jail and was charged with trespassing.
He also tried to kiss Will Smith at the "Men in Black 3" premiere in 2012. Smith slapped the journalist. Days later, Pitt was asked how he would have handled that situation. He said, "I would stay away from the entertainment gossip. I don't want to slap anyone. What would that happen? I would never want to hurt anyone."
Sources say that Pitt tried to defend himself, but he quickly was back in movie star mode. He was seen signing autographs as Sediuk was taken away.
