Notorious prankster crawls under America Ferrera's dress at red carpet event
The How To Train Your Dragon 2 star fell victim to a creepy prank, but insists she's "over it"
Hollywood star America Ferrera was left shaken after a notorious Ukrainian prankster crawled under her dress as she walked down the red carpet.
The How to Train Your Dragon 2 star was posing for photographs at the Cannes Film Festival with colleagues Cate Blanchett and Kit Hattington when the man, later identified as Ukrainian Vitalii Sediuk, rushed the red carpet and dove under her gown.
The intruder was quickly rushed away by security as double Oscar winner Cate Blanchett and Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington comforted a visibly upset Ferrera.
But the drama doesn’t seem to have bothered Ferrera, who was seen pictured with guests after the premier and later told The Hollywood Reporter that she was “over it”.
Co-star Blanchett earlier said that red carpet events had left her feeling like “merchandise”.
“It’s a little bit rude to look a woman up and down like that, and when a camera does it, it’s a bit annoying,” she told a press conference.
The Ukrainian prankster has targeted red carpet events in the past. In 2012, he attempted to kiss Will Smith on the lips, and gave awkward waist-height hugs to Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper.
