Brad Pitt Attacked By Random Dude At Maleficent Premiere

We’re all very familiar with most of the perks of being a celebrity, but there are a hell of a lot of obvious downsides to being super famous too. Random wackjobs would be a good example. Just ask Brad Pitt. The legendary actor was minding his own business on the red carpet of his wife Angelina Jolie’s new movie Maleficent when he was bumrushed by some Ukrainian dude.

The incident in question happened at the El Captain Theater, which is located across from Grauman’s Chinese Theater (the handprints place) on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, Brad Pitt was walking the Red Carpet when Vitalii Sediuk jumped over a barrier and charged toward the poor celebrity. Everyone was in such shock he even managed to get all the way to Pitt and make contact with his face before he was tackled and promptly arrested.

If the name Vitalii Sediuk sounds familiar, it’s probably because he’s pulled some stunts like this in the past. He’s crashed the Grammys, shown up in a weird outfit and generally creeped more than a handful of celebrities out.

Vitalii Sediuk seems to think he’s pranking celebrities when he’s doing all of these outrageous stunts. Now and again, that’s probably true, but more often than not, he’s just terrifying them, which is not OK. Sediuk was formally booked for misdemeanor battery last night.
