Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk, a serial pest, jumped over a barricade and allegedly hit the Actor on the face, knocking off his sunglasses.

Britain’s Daily Mail reported “He leapt over the barrier and made contact with Brad Pitt.”


Jolie missed all of the excitement as she was in another section greeting fans.

Fortunately her fiancé was not hurt and continued walking the red carpet.

Sediuk, 25, has made a name for himself by playing pranks on celebrities at red-carpet events.

He was caught trying to put his head up America Ferrera’s skirt in Cannes last week.

In January, the journalist hugged actor Bradley Cooper from the waist down, placing his face in his crotch.

Sediuk’s next appearance involved actor Leonardo DiCaprio at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, in February.  He went straight for DiCaprio’s crotch as well.

At the 2013 Grammys, Sediuk was arrested for going on stage as Adele was about to receive her award.

Pretending the award was for him, he thanked Adele for being her inspiration.

In 2012, he tried to kiss actor Will Smith on the lips at the Russian premiere of Men in Black 3, but just missed.

TMZ has reported that Sediuk is being detained by the LAPD and will be booked for misdemeanour battery.
