America Ferrera is the latest victim of Ukranian journalist Vitalii Sediuk, who disrupted the actress’ Cannes experience with his latest prank.
The 30-year-old actress was posing on the red carpet with her “How to Train Your Dragon 2” co-stars at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday when a man revealed to be a Ukrainian journalist attempted to get up under Ferrera’s dress on the red carpet before security dragged him out as he grabbed America’s foot.
This isn’t the first prank Sediuk has done that made headlines. He was the same man who made it on stage at the 2013 Grammys to take Adele’s award, the man who attempted to kiss Will Smith on the red carpet, and crotch-hugged Bradley Cooper.
Ferrera told New York magazine about the incident: “It felt like a crazy weird dream. It was like, ‘I was at Cannes in my dream. I was on the red carpet and Cate Blanchett was next to me, and then some guy jumped under my dress!’ Of all the things I prepared myself for, that was not one of them.”
When the NY mag interviewer suggested that the experience was “kind of violating,” Ferrara said “I agree with that statement.”
