Brad Pitt was hit in the face while walking the red carpet at Hollywood’s El Capitan theatre on Wednesday evening.
The actor had been attending the premiere of Maleficent with his partner, Angelina Jolie, who stars in the movie, when the incident took place. The Fight Club actor was posing for photographs and signing autographs when “a guy jumped over the barricades and made contact with him,” Officer Nuria Vanegas of the Los Angeles Police Department told the Los Angeles Times.
Police told KTLA that the suspect punched Pitt in the face.
Vitalii Seduik, the 25-year-old suspect is the same person who allegedly attempted to crawl under actress America Ferrera’s gown at the premiere of How to Train Your Dragon 2 at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this month.
Pitt appeared to be unharmed and continued signing autographs after the attack, Associated Press reports.
Seduik was booked on suspicion of battery and is being held on 20,000 bail, reports the Times.
