Who is Vitalii Sediuk? Get the Details on Hollywood's Prankster

Vitalii Sediuk has made more waves in Hollywood after he was identified as the man who punched Brad Pitt in the face at the premiere of Maleficent on Wednesday (May 28) in Hollywood.

The Ukrainian man has caused a ruckus at many Hollywood events over the years. He most recently stormed the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and hid under America Ferrera‘s dress during her film premiere.

Earlier this month, he showed up at the Met Gala in New York City and streaked his way through the crowd in a pink string bikini reminiscent of Borat’s green one.

Other pranks include crotch-hugging both Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio on separate occasions, trying to kiss (and then getting slapped by) Will Smith on a red carpet, crashing Adele‘s acceptance speech at the Grammys, and more.

Vitalii was banned from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles after his Grammys stunt and told The Hollywood Reporter, “Let’s be honest. There are only two major events in L.A. Live: the Emmys and Grammys. I think I can survive not attending those two events. There’s so much happening in Los Angeles.”

  • She Would

    if he’s Ukrainian, how come he still has a visa?

  • Natalie

    The guy in the pictures is not Vitalii… this is vitalii.

  • Dani

    This guy’s so annoying! I knew about him since the Will Smith accident. He tries SO HARD to be some kind of prankster, or troll or Internet meme but HE IS JUST REALLY REALLY ANNOYING! Gosh, just go away. Lock him up, send him in an Ukrainian jail.

  • Louise

    I cant believe your even giving this guy an article, thats exactly what he wants by doing these stupid unfunny pranks. Go to hollywood check, make sure you gain access to high profile events check, then act like a douche and invade someones personal space, assault etc and then you’ll be famous. Only in America.

  • DomitoJo

    I think he’s hot as the eff word!!

  • Hydrangea

    His best prank was with Madonna and a flower she hated. Other times he was just plain stupid.

  • Justine

    I wish he would try any of those antics on Solange Knowles……

  • sadie

    @Justine: LOLOL. Now THAT would be awesome to see..

  • LoMo


    1) He is known to cause a stir / trouble and embarrassment.

    2) His face is (must be) known to bodyguards and security ppl of events

    3) Yet, somehow he still manages to get close to celebs at HUGE events..?

    .. don’t tell me, that he’s not purposedly allowed to get in, to create MAJOR headlines for the events. it’s all ARRAMGED PR and we are all eating it.

  • meow

    He is secretly thanking Brad Pitt for making him a well known jerk across the world.

  • Marianne

    Many of these things he did are not pranks, bur assault/sexual assault. If i were one of the celebrities, i would have him charged

  • NativeNYker

    f****r is everywhere! serious frequent flyer miles.

  • Jeanne

    I think it’s scary, he’s going to escalate to doing something really tragic to someone. I don’t know why he’s not in a mental institution or jail.

  • Binah

    I wonder where this guy gets the money or finds the time to fly around the world to do these worthless, stupid pranks?

  • Shanahan

    Why doesn’t he try this with rappers? Afraid to get capped?

  • no worship here

    fun to watch the royal Celebrities get shown up

  • Rada

    I wonder if he’s rich, I mean that’s one of the few reasons he can get away with the stuff he’s done.


    Nose punching screws the pooch. Not a prank. Should have stuck with the streaking and crotch hugs.

  • santamariavargas

    Send him back from whence he came.
