Remember when the Ukrainian prankster punched Brad Pitt in the face at the Maleficent Premiere? Well, it turns out that isn't how events went down at all. According to the Pittster himself, Vitalii Sediuk was actually going in for the groin region. Who can blame him, really?
Ramming his face into the groins of Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio clearly wasn't enough to sate Sediuk's hunger for celebrity crotch. When Brad saw the low-life looming toward his nether regions, he did what any other self respecting sane person would do and reigned the punches. The [12 Years A Slave](movie:222641) actor explained to People magazine that;
I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses.
I don’t mind an exhibitionist, but if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped
Well said Brad! A bit of harmless fun is one thing but physically assaulting people in next level 'not cool'.
If this guy decided to get on the subway and bury his face into peoples genitals or look up an unsuspecting girls dress, he would get his ass kicked within an inch of his life.
Just because the novelty of celebrity is involved, it doesn't make his childish actions funny and I, for one, am glad his bad ass got dragged into custody.
How do you feel about the actions of Vitalii Sediuk at the [Maleficent](movie:39352) premiere? Harmless fun or a serious security breach?
