Not the face! Brad Pitt was punched by a notorious celebrity prankster on the red carpet at the premiere of Angelina Jolie’s film Maleficent on Wednesday, May 28, a source tells Us Weekly. Pitt was at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood for the premiere of the Disney film when a man, later identified as Vitalii Sediuk suddenly jumped the barrier and ran up to the 12 Years a Slave actor while he was walking down the carpet. Pitt, who was singing fan autographs, was surprised by the Ukrainian, who then made contact with Pitt’s face before security intervened and held the so-called prankster until police arrived on the scene. Los Angeles Police Department's Sergeant Leonard Calderon told Variety that Seduik was taken to the Hollywood police station where he was arrested and booked on suspicion of misdemeanour battery. He is being held on $20,000 bail.
Apparently the Ukaine has at least one douche, because Vitalii Sediuk is the same dude who tried to crawl under America Ferrara's skirt at Cannes. I really don't understand the whole prank thing, because they usually do stuff that would get you killed if it weren't for the societal laws that make that a bad idea or they end up being some like borderline gay shit (I'm looking at you, Rush Week). Oohh, you "pantsed" somebody?! Man, we need to hang out because I bet you're pretty popular and people love you at parties.
