Brad Pitt Fires Back at Vitalii Sediuk

He’s not usually one to lose his cool, but Brad Pitt was pretty miffed after Ukranian prankster Vitalii Sediuk rushed him at the premiere of “Maleficent” last week.

The “Seven” actor released a statement to People to explain his dismay over the incident which ended up breaking his pricey designer sunglasses and disrupting his red carpet session with partner Angelina Jolie.

Pitt began, "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."

Brad added, "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."
