Bradley Cooper’s Crotch Hugged by Prankster Vitalii Sediuk at 2014 SAG Awards

A full list of winners from the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The infamous Ukrainian prankster, Vitalii Sediuk, was at it again at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on Saturday (January 18, 2014).

This time the object of his pranking was actor Bradley Cooper. The American Hustle star received what appeared to be some very inappropriate and unwanted attention on the red carpet.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian journalist somehow made his way onto the red carpet and greeted Cooper with a handshake as he arrived. But the encounter soon turned awkward when Sediuk got down on his knees and hugged the actor’s thighs as Mandy Patinkin and Michael Pena looked on in surprise.

Photos of the incident show the Oscar nominee trying to laugh off the stunt by attempting to pull Sediuk back to his feet, but he needed a little extra help from Pena to free himself from the man’s grip.

Previously, Vitalii upset Will Smith at the Russian premiere for Men in Black 3 in 2012, when he attempted to kiss the Hollywood star, only for the actor to slap him.
