Brad Pitt Attacked At Movie Premier

Hollywood, California (CNN) — Actor Brad Pitt was struck in the face as he was signing autographs at a movie premiere Wednesday, Los Angeles police said.

Pitt was at the Hollywood premiere of “Maleficent,” starring his partner Angelina Jolie, when a man hopped a barrier and attacked the actor, Sgt. Leonard Calderon said.

Officers arrested the suspect, 25-year-old Vitalii Sediuk, on suspicion of battery.

Sediuk has a history of confronting celebrities at red carpet events. In 2012, he was slapped by actor Will Smith after he attempted to kiss Smith.

At the 2013 Grammy Awards, Sediuk charged the stage before singer Adele could accept her award.

Sediuk also hugged actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper around the knees at separate events earlier this year.

Most recently, he put his head up America Ferrara’s dress at the Cannes premiere of “How to Train Your Dragon 2” last week.

After the attack Wednesday evening, Pitt and Jolie continued walking the blue carpet. Neither appeared to look fazed by the incident.
