America Ferrera Violated by Red Carpet 'Prankster' at Cannes Film Festival (PHOTOS)

America FerreraDude. Some guy tried to crawl up Ugly Betty's skirt. Like -- for reals. A man was arrested in France on Friday for trying to slip his head under America Ferrera's skirt on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. So that happened.

The 30-year-old actress was posing with her How to Train Your Dragon 2 costars Cate Blanchett, Jay Baruchel, Kit Harrington, and Djimon Hounsou when the creepster crawled behind the group and attempted to dive under her Georges Hobeika Coture dress.

I mean, there was probably plenty of room under all that tulle, but it's not polite to crawl up a famous actress' skirt uninvited on the red carpet! Or anyone's skirt on the red carpet. Or anywhere.

America Ferrera There was quite a scramble as security hauled the man away and the stars tried to regain their composure. You know, because some dude just crawled up America's skirt. I bet her husband Ryan Piers Williams (who is with her in the South of France) was none too pleased at the violation.

The man was later identified as serial red carpet pest Vitalii Sediuk, a Ukrainian journalist who has gotten into trouble before with totally weird way of relating to celebrities. Like the time Will Smith slapped him for trying to kiss him, or the time he crashed Adele's Grammy acceptance speech. The guy clearly has zero boundaries.

Would you freak out if a stanger tried to crawl up your skirt?

He would have an embarrassing time trying to explain why he's laying flat out on the pavement. Don't know why this idiot isn't locked up somewhere. Journalist? I think not. And it's not a prank, it's harassment.

Cant really blame someone for taking the piss out of extravagant celeb worship culture.

I dont consider him a prankster. He violates people. In January he ran up to Bradley Cooper and buried his face in his crotch. He is a jerk.

He assaults people and gets away with it by claiming to be a journalist. No he's a pervert and an asshole and needs to be charged!

Uh YEAH I'd freak. Dude is probably lucky he didn't get his face stomped. What a creep.
