Wherever there is a red carpet event, celebrities have to be on the lookout for Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk. He stuck again, this time planting his face right in Leonardo DiCaprio’s crotch during an event at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California.
DiCaprio was on hand to accept the festival’s Vanguard Award, one of the many awards he’s picked up after his performance in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, notes the New York Daily News. While on his way to the theater, Sediuk jumped at DiCaprio, hugging the actor’s legs.
DiCaprio didn’t look very prepared, but he smiled and Sediuk wasn’t arrested.
Hugging stars at the legs appears to be Sediuk’s new schtick. He did the same thing to Bradley Cooper at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last month, notes E! News.
Sediuk used to try to kiss celebrities, which really angered Will Smith. He also tried to crash the Grammys in 2013, but Jennifer Lopez kept him from reaching the stage. Also in 2013, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences tried to have him barred from the Oscars and threatened to arrest him if he showed up.
