If Brad Pitt could have chosen another day to be punched in the face, he probably would have. Or maybe not at all, but wednesday night, May 28, was supposed to be Angelina Jolie’s big night at the Maleficent premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
Vitalii Sediuk, 25-year-old known celebrity prankster, jumped barriers and rushed toward Jolie and Pitt signing autographs and apparently struck the 50-year-old actor in the face. Whether he was punched or slapped is unknown.
LAPD Sgt. Leonard Calderon said Sediuk was arrested and booked with suspicion of misdemeanor battery. With a whopping $20,000 bail. Pitt went on like it was just another day.
Just last week, Sediuk, put his head up America Ferrera’s dress at the How To Train Your Dragon 2 premiere. In 2013, he ran up on stage before Adele could accept her award and in 2012, Sediuk attempted to kiss Will Smith at a red carpet event.
Points for creativity.
