Repeat Offender: Reporter Attacks Brad Pitt At ‘Maleficent’ Premiere! Was This Another “Emotional Impulse?”



First Will Smith! Then Leonardo DiCaprio! Now … Brad Pitt!

During Wednesday night’s Los Angeles premiere of Angelina Jolie’s forthcoming film, Maleficent, reporter Vitalii Sediuk bum-rushed Brad Pitt while the star made his way down the red carpet.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells HipHollywood that around 7:30 p.m,  Sediuk jumped over the barrier at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and made contact with Pitt before being taken out by law enforcement. We are told that Ukraine native was arrested for battery.

Vitalii Sediuk is the same reporter who was arrested for attempting to crash the Grammys, who put his face in Leonardo DiCaprio’s crotch during the Santa Barbara Int’l. Film Festival earlier this year and who got slapped by Will Smith for attempting to kiss him.

When HipHollywood talked exclusively with Sediuk in May 2012 about the Smith incident, the reporter described his action as “emotional impulse.”

“I think it was too much. Now I understand it was too much. I just tried to kiss his cheek and he moved his head so fast … Will Smith is a person whom I deeply respect as an actor.”

He added, “I just wanted to do something not extraordinary, but to impress him … It was an emotional moment and I’m sorry for that.”


Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
