In case you’ve missed it, Brad Pitt was attacked by Vitalii Sediuk during the red carpet premiere of Angelina Jolie’s new movie “Maleficent”. What you may not have heard, however, is that Brad actually got a couple of hits in with the guy.
Vitalii jumped the barricade while Brad was signing autographs and attacked him, leaving the father of six to defend himself. Brad said to “People” magazine: “I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out of 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 hard 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 has since gotten a restraining order against Vitalii and he has also been banned from future events of the like. 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.”
If you are unaware about Brad’s reference, he is talking about how Vitalii crawled under America Ferrara’s dress during the Cannes Film Festival recently.
