Even when he’s not disturbing celebrities on the red carpet, Vitalii Sediuk still makes headlines. He has shown no remorse for what he did to Brad Pitt and won’t apologize, even as he does community service for hitting the star.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sediuk said he can’t feel sorry for Pitt. “He has everything you can imagine. And I’m cleaning toilets? Sorry, but excuse me,” the 25-year-old Ukrainian said, while wearing a shirt with Pitt’s face on it.
Sediuk also said that he wasn’t aiming for How To Train Your Dragon 2 star America Ferrera at the Cannes Film Festival in May. He told THR that he was really hoping to stick his head under Cate Blanchett’s dress, but Ferrera was wearing the bigger gown. He assumed – incorrectly – that bigger fame means that you wear a bigger gown.
Since Blanchett was wearing a sheer Givenchy gown, police told him, “it would have been a sexual harassment [charge],” he said.
As for Ferrera, she is still understandably horrified by the incident at the most glamorous celebrity event outside of the Oscars. “It was shocking and violating,” she told the New York Daily News this week. “I just wish we wouldn’t give him the attention he was seeking.”
Sediuk got a 17-day community service sentence for punching Pitt at the Maleficent LA premiere last month. He also lost his job at the Ukrainian TV station he worked for.
