A typical Hollywood movie premiere turned into an atypically scary situation for Brad Pitt at the El Capitan theater last night thanks to a bona fide wacko.
The actor was in hand to support his wife and her new film, Maleficent, when a man broke through a security barrier and approached the star on the red carpet.
Sources confirm to TMZ that this individual actually made contact with Pitt’s face in some way before getting pushed to the ground and apprehended by police.
The man was later identified as Ukranian reporter, Vitalii Sediuk, the same moron who got slapped for attempting to kiss Will Smith and arrested for crashing the Grammys.
He nuzzled his face against Leonardio DiCaprio’s crotch at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and crawled inside America Ferrera’s dress in Cannes (below).
Sediuk was detained by LAPD officers and will be charged with misdemeanor battery. Pitt’s lovely face, meanwhile, was thankfully unharmed.
