A man rushed onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday and crawled beneath the dress of actress America Ferrera.

Security officials quickly pulled the man away as he tried to hide under Ferrera's voluminous gown before a premiere. It was a bizarre incident on a red carpet renowned for its strict decorum. The man was later identified as Vitalii Sediuk, a Ukrainian prankster known for such stunts. The former Ugly Betty star was on her way into the world premiere of the DreamWorks animation How To Train Your Dragon 2 and seemed unruffled by the incident.
