Man Attempts to Hide Under America Ferrera's Gown on Cannes Red Carpet

Posted on May 16, 2014

Well, this was bizarre. Cate Blanchett, Kit Harrington and America Ferrera were walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France at the premiere of their DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon 2 when a man ran on the red carpet, hurled himself to the ground and tried to crawl up under America's gown. He even grabbed her ankle and who knows what he was going to do next when security grabbed the man and literally dragged him away. Cate and Kit were seen comforting America and making sure she was okay. She was pretty shocked, but carried on with the many photo sessions as they made their way down the red carpet with Toothless the Dragon in a red bow tie. Co-stars Jay Baruchel and Djimon Hounsou also walked the red carpet.

The stars line up for the first set of photos at the :54 mark of the video. At the 1:05 mark of the video, the man lifts up America's dress, lies down on the red carpet and grabs her ankle. Then security shows up. It must have been quite frightening for America. Some reports say the man is Vitalii Sediuk, the same guy that tried to kiss Will Smith at the Men in Black 3 premiere and got slapped for his trouble. Take a look:
