Brad’s attacker: I can’t pity Pitt
Vitalii Sediuk, who buried his head in the Fight Club actor’s crotch last month, says he “can’t feel sorry for Brad Pitt”.
Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk was given 17 days community service after he buried his head in the actor’s crotch at the Maleficent première in Los Angeles last month. He is now undertaking the sentence in the City of Angels, where he is reportedly cleaning toilets as part of his punishment. The attack also cost him his job at Ukrainian network 1+1 TV.
"I can't feel sorry for Brad Pitt. He has everything you can imagine. And I'm cleaning toilets? Sorry, but excuse me," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
During the interview, Vitalii was wearing a tank top featuring a photo of a semi-shirtless Brad.
“[The photo is] from the ‘90s, back in his [Brad’s] prime,” he explained in his interview.
After the attack Brad talked openly about it, calling Vitalii a “nutter” and explaining more about what happened.
“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 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,” the 50-year-old movie star told People Magazine.
Vitalii had previously leapt into actress America Ferrera’s dress at the 16 May Cannes première of How To Train Your Dragon 2. He claims he was originally aiming for Cate Blanchett when he launched at America.
“Actually I was originally Cate Blanchett. I thought ‘OK, Cate Blanchett is major star; she’ll have the bigger dress,” he said.
