Like the supporting and loving person he is, Brad Pitt attended the Los Angeles premiere of partner Angelina Jolie’s new film Maleficent yesterday but unfortunately he didn’t have a good time. Ukrainian serial prankster Vitalii Sediuk hit the actor in the face!
Sediuk already has a reputation of crashing red carpets and making some kind of antic to get the attention of the media. He is the same guy who crotch hugged actor Bradley Cooper at SAG awards.
This time the serial prankster struck again and chose Brad as his victim. Vitalii who was in the fan area jump over a barrier on to the red carpet at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and rush at Pitt, touching him briefly before security guards wrestled him back across the barrier. He was led away in handcuffs after the incident.
So what do we know about him? Here is the dirt, he is a 25-year-old Ukrainian journalist and TV presenter. Some of his targets include singer Adele when last year he crashed the 2013 Grammys stage, just as she was about to receive her award, a year earlier, poor Will Smith was the victim of one of his oh-so-hilarious (not so much) pranks when he had to slapped Sediuk across the face when he tried to kiss him on the lips on the red carpet at the Men In Black 3 premiere.
Most recently, as a matter of fact last week Sediuk was caught on camera as he lunged on to the red carpet behind actress America Ferrera, before grabbing hold of her leg and slipping his head under the bottom of her dress.
He claims to work for “Studio 1+1,” a website and channel in his native country. His YouTube videos also show him carrying a microphone bearing the channel’s logo. His videos also show him interviewing Dita Von Teese, Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi, Jared Leto, but also asking provocative questions to Ryan Seacrest and producing segments on Jon Hamm’s bulge.
Too bad he is better known for harassing the stars.
But the guy must have an angel somewhere or doesn’t care about spending some nights in a cold jail-cell; last year, after learning he avoided jail time for his Grammys stunt, he told The Hollywood Reporter,
“I’m still alive as you can see, still smiling.”
