Brad Pitt Gets Rocked On The Red Carpet
Rule #1 of the red carpet- always keep your head on a swivel.
The 50 year old "Fight Club" star was punched in the face while walking the red carpet at the premiere of Angelina Jolie's new movie "Maleficent" Wednesday night in Hollywood. The suspect, 25 year old Vitalii Seduik, allegedly hopped over a barricade and struck Pitt while he was signing autographs for fans.
This isn't the first time that Seduik, who was booked on suspicion of battery, has caused a ruckus at one of these events. Less than two weeks ago he caused a scene in Cannes when he attempted to crawl under actress America Ferrera's gown at the premiere of "How To Train Your Dragon 2," and in May of 2012 a video of him kissing, and subsequently getting slapped by, Will Smith went viral during a red carpet event for "Men In Black 3" in Moscow.
Pitt emerged from the incident unscathed, and the Ukrainian "journalist" is being held on $20,000 bond.
I don't think this is what Angelia had in mind when she wished for a "big hit" opening weekend.
