Playing the dutiful boyfriend, Brad Pitt showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of Angelina Jolie's new film “Maleficent” last night (May 28).

The handsome “Ocean’s Eleven” actor was busy signing autographs and posing for photos on the red carpet outside the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood when a crazed fan jumped the barricade and ran up to him to touch his face.

Of course, Pitt’s security and the LAPD were quick to intervene, neutralizing the situation before things got too out-of-hand, and Brad was able to go inside to join his family.

After the attacker was subdued, authorities discovered he was none other than Ukranian prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who has pulled similar stunts with America Ferrera, Will Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio.
