Brad Pitt has provided details about the red-carpet incident at last week’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival of Maleficent, involving himself and notorious Ukranian journalist Vitalii Sediuk. In a statement to People magazine, Pitt said: “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.” Pitt said that if Sediuk doesn’t stop, “he’s going to spoil it for the fans … because it will make [celebrities] more wary to approach a crowd.” A week earlier Sediuk was brought down by security personnel at the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival afer he attempted to crawl under America Ferrera’s gown.
