Brad Pitt

EXCLUSIVE

Brad Pitt Attacked Maleficent Premiere
Brad Pitt was the target of a crazed man who jumped a barrier and made contact with the actor while he walked a red carpet..

Pitt was at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood for the premiere of wife Angelina Jolie's new Disney flick "Maleficent" ... when a man suddenly jumped the fence and ran up to the actor while he was walking down the red carpet.

We're told the man actually made contact with Pitt's face before being nabbed by cops. It's unclear what the man's intentions were.

Law enforcement sources tell us the man was arrested by LAPD and booked for misdemeanor battery.

Are you sure he's not one of TMZ's reporters? Sounds like it could be.

I don't know what would possess or cause a person to waste their time on the red carpet trying to get close to a Hollywood celebrity like Brad Pitt. He is short little man for one. He probably wears lifts to make himself feel taller.

Most exciting thing that's happened in relation to this film.

Also the guy who thought it was funny to stick his head under America Ferrera's dress in Cannes. Who pays this guy to be such a dumbass?

Vitalii Sediuk should be banned from attending events. He is nothing but a nuisance. If they can't ban him at least let law enforcement know who he is and try to spot him, so he can't try to get another 15 min of fame. Has he been mentally evaluated? He obviously hasn't learned that rushing celebrities is not okay.

Just jail him! He tried to sexually assault America Ferrera in France and he should have been designated a paedophile and should have been jailed after that, bet the LAPD and the Courts won't have the guts to put him away this time and the s*** will continue to taint other peoples lives.

Twisted freak. Stop giving him publicity - that's all these sort of people crave and do these things to get. Lock him up and lose the key.

He just needs a hug. What's so wrong with that?

I hope this guy remembers... These people have the money to have you killed and get away with it.
