Vitalii Sediuk is persona non grata in Hollywood.
The Ukrainian prankster targeted Brad Pitt at Wednesday's Maleficent premiere, allegedly attacking Angelina Jolie's fiancé. Sediuk jumped over a barrier in an attempt to crash the red carpet at the El Capitan Theatre. He then rushed at Pitt, touching the actor briefly before security guards wrestled him away. "This all went down behind the step and repeat while Angie was posing for the photographers," a source says.
Another eyewitness tells E! News that fans "went insane" as Pitt began signing autographs, saying, "It became completely chaotic and fans swarmed towards Brad." It was then that Sediuk lunged at Pitt. Fortunately, the World War Z star was able to brush the incident off and go about his business. "Fans were very grateful that Brad did not allow the drama to stop him from signing," the eyewitness says.
Police arrested Sediuk on the scene and took him into custody, where he was booked for battery.
