Serial prankster Vitalii Sediuk has struck again – and this time Brad Pitt was his famous target.
The 25-year-old Ukrainian journalist and TV presenter was led away in handcuffs after allegedly attacking Brad, 50,
on the red carpet at Wednesday’s Hollywood premiere of Angelina Jolie’s latest big screen blockbuster, Maleficent.
Hollywood actor Brad, who looked shocked by the incident, was apparently unhurt and soon resumed signing autographs before walking into the theatre.
Witnesses saw Vitalii who was in the fan area jump over a barrier on to the red carpet at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and rush at Pitt, touching him briefly before security guards wrestled him back across the barrier.

A spokeswoman said: “He leapt over the barrier and made contact with Brad Pit.”
He was later arrested on suspicion of battery.
America was posing for a snap with the likes of Cate Blanchett at the time for the premiere of How To Train Your Dragon, and they all looked suitably shocked by the outburst.
The overly-confident man was arrested after crashing the 2013 Grammys stage, just as singer Adele
was about to receive her award (watch THAT moment above).
The shocking footage shows Sediuk run to the podium to take the award from Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull before the singer was even up the stairs.
He was later arrested and reportedly spent the night in a police cell.

And a year earlier, poor Will Smith was the victim of one of his oh-so-hilarious (not so much) pranks.
The Seven Pounds actor
slapped Sediuk across the face when he tried to kiss him on the lips on the red carpet at the Men In Black 3 premiere.
Will expertly dodged two attempts, with both kisses landing on his cheeks, before swatting him with his hand – clearly as unaware as America was about who the man was.
Blockbuster footage from Russian LifeNews showed the actor telling him: “Hey man, what the hell is your problem?”
The Fresh Prince star later said: “He’s lucky I didn’t try to sucker punch him. … Sorry, I said that on camera.”
