While attending the L.A. premiere of “Maleficent” with fiancée Angelina Jolie and his family, Brad Pitt was accosted by notorious Ukrainian ex-journalist Vitalii Sediuk on the red carpet.Pitt has given his account of the incident to People.com.
The “World War Z” actor explained, "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."
