Actor Brad Pitt sent a message to the pranksters such as Vitalii Sediuk who try to get attention at red carpet movie premiere events with outlandish stunts such as trying to physically invade the space or touch actors that such conduct will not be tolerated.
While on the red carpet for the premiere of his wife's movie "Maleficent" with his five children Vitalii Sediuk, a Ukrainian television personality who had made news at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for trying to look up the skirt of actress America Ferrara breached the security and tried to bury his head into the crotch of Brad Pitt!
The actor had seen the television personality stage dive the barriers and had taken a step back but was absolutely astonished when he realized what the individual was trying to do and he quickly hit Vitalii Sediuk a couple times in the back of his head at which point he let go of him and the security was then on top of him.
Brad Pitt was not fearful for his safety but he did make a statement that must have the agents of actors and those who put on the red carpet events petrified when he said that if this individual continues to act like this at media events he could ruin the actor/fan interaction for those who wait all night for an autograph or selfie because actors will be less willing to interact with fans if this is the result.
Moreover, he noted how if the prankster attempts to look up the skirt of an actress at a red carpet event he will likely get "stomped" which gives the impression to some entertainment insiders that the actions of the prankster have drawn notice from many within the entertainment community.
Why an individual would attempt to accost Brad Pitt of "Fight Club" fame is inconceivable but it seems as if a positive will come from this situation because the prospect of being known worldwide as the individual who changed how actors and fans interact will likely make individuals contemplating this action think twice. In addition, fans can expect that security at all events will likely be increased ten-fold to ensure that such actions do not take place again.
