Brad Pitt was walking the red carpet at Disney’s “Maleficent” movie premiere with soon-to-be wife Angelina Jolie when things went bad! The same man who crawled under America Ferrera’s dress at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16, 2014, Vitalii Sediuk, ran up to Brad and punched him in the face!
Police took Vitalii to the Hollywood police station where he is being held on a $20,000 bail. In the past Vitalii has also tried to kiss Will Smith and get inappropriately close to Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Brad and Angelina left the “Maleficent” red carpet for 15 minutes, and when they returned they separated. Brad walked down the red carpet as quickly as he could, without pausing for interviews. Angelina on the other hand took her time – doing interviews, posing for photos.
Portraying “Maleficent” was such an honor for Angelina it seems she wasn’t going to let anything stop her from soaking in the red carpet at the event. Good for her! Hopefully Brad’s face is alright though!
A Disney spokesperson told the press about what happened:
This was an unfortunate and inappropriate incident that is being investigated by the LAPD.
Onlookers revealed that Brad seemed “tense” throughout the night, and that he was trying to stay as close to his children as possible to keep them safe. When the premiere ended Brad, Angelina and their family left as quickly as possible.
