America Ferrera had a startling experience walking the red carpet for the Cannes premiere of DreamWorks' "How to Train Your Dragon 2" Friday night when a man dove under her dress.
New York magazine's Vulture reported that the tuxedoed man jumped out of a crowd
that included fans and paparazzi and, for some bizarre, unknown reason, stuck his head under the back of her Georges Hobeika gown as she posed arm-in-arm with co-stars Cate Blanchett and Kit Harrington.
Ferrera, 30, said of the incident, "I don't even know what happened! I feel something behind me, and there's this guy under my dress, and then two guys drag him away!"

"It was so confusing," director Dean DeBlois later told reporters. "I thought someone was coming to fluff her dress for the photo and all of a sudden he's, like, under it. And it was all sort of over before anyone could process it. He got hauled off and thrown in jail."
The Daily Mail reported that the man in question was identified
as a Ukrainian named Vitalii Sediuk. He had a press pass, which many are now wondering how he obtained given that he has a history of inappropriate antics involving celebrities.
In 2012, Sediuk attempted to kiss Will Smith on the lips during the premiere of "Men in Black 3." Smith dodged twice, then slapped him on the face before he was dragged away by security.
Sediuk is also the man who ran on stage during the 2013 Grammys, interrupting Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull, who were about to give an award to Adele. Then, at two other separate red-carpet events this year, Sediuk reportedly hugged Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio around the waist, putting his head in their crotches.
