+Brad Pitt was attacked in Hollywood. Brad Pitt almost got face-planted by an infamous Ukrainian prankster who rushed the movie star Wednesday outside the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles. The hunky heartthrob had arrived late with his family to the premiere of Angelina Jolie’s “Maleficient,” which also stars their 4-year-old daughter Vivienne as a young Aurora.
Pitt was strolling the red carpet when 25-year-old Vitalii Sediuk — wearing maroon pants, a dark jacket and casual loafers — leapt over the security barrier and tried to get his hands on one of the world’s most famous kissers. Sediuk ended up facedown over a security barrier — checkered underwear exposed — as security grabbed him and hauled him away from Pitt.
The Ukrainian prankster was detained by the Los Angeles police and faced a misdemeanor battery charge. He is being held on $20,000 bail. Pitt was later seen laughing over the incident as he continued on his way into the theater.
This incident marks the Sediuk’s fourth celebrity prank of the year. Earlier this month, he tried to crawl under the back of America Ferrera‘s dress at the ‘How to Train a Dragon 2′ screening at the Cannes Film Festival.
His first prank of 2014 came in January, when he hugged Bradley Cooper’s crotch on the red carpet of the Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. In February of this year, he made the same move on Leonardo DiCaprio‘s crotch at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. In February 2013, the 25-year-old appeared onstage to crash Adele’s acceptance speech at the Grammys. He was charged with trespassing and spent the night in jail.
