Sediuk rushed onto the red carpet and dived under Ferrera’s long white skirt, before being quickly pulled away by security officials.

There was an uncomfortable moment as he crouched on the ground with his head underneath her dress. He grabbed her ankles as he dived, sources told the Hollywood Reporter.

Ukrainian journalist Sediuk has hit headlines before. He was slapped by Will Smith after trying to kiss him on the red carpet, stormed the Grammys stage during Adele’s speech, and crotch-hugged Bradley cooper.

Ferrera’s How To Train Your Dragon 2 co-star Cate Blanchett was first to react, trying to push Sediuk off before security arrived.

When asked about the incident afterwards, Ferrera told reporters: “It’s fine – I’m over it.”
