CNN reports a man hopped a barrier and apparently struck Pitt in the face as he was signing autographs. The actor was there to support his fiance, who stars in the movie.

And the man behind the alleged attack is a familiar figure. He's the same man who tried to kiss Will Smith on the mouth at the Moscow premiere of "Men in Black III." (Via The Guardian)

The 25-year-old trouble maker, Vitalii Sediuk, also snuck on-stage before Adele accepted a Grammy in 2013.

USA Today reports, "It's becoming a disturbingly familiar [sight]" to see the Ukrainian, who has worked in media, at A-lister events.

It's also unclear how he continues to find his way into such high-profile events.

As for this latest bout of misbehaving, The Hollywood Reporter says Sediuk was taken into police custody and booked, "on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and held at the LAPD's Hollywood station in lieu of $20,000 in bail."

That may be the most expensive smack ever. Pitt continued to greet fans after the incident. So far, no comment from his rep.
