Pitt, 50, who took the unusual step of attending the premiere with his five of his children, is understood not to have been seriously injured in the altercation. 

The actor was not standing near Jolie when the attack happened - she was in another section greeting her fans.

Pitt was signing autographs when Sediuk, 25, rushed past barriers and hit him in the face. 

Whether exactly this kind of attack had been the intention or not, is not clear.

Sediuk was thrown to the ground and cuffed as he struggled, his red trousers were nearly pulled down in the fray.

Pitt kept greeting fans and walked into the theater. 

Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Gus Villanueva said Pitt was not seriously hurt and authorities quickly subdued Sediuk, who was arrested for misdemeanor battery and remained in police custody on Wednesday night.

Sediuk is now being held pending payment of $20,000 bail.

'The officers who were handling him said it looked like it was intentional, but at this point, it remains to be determined,' said Sergeant Leonard Calderon for LAPD Hollywood.

Before the incident, Jolie said that the El Capitan is like a local theatre for herself, Pitt and their children who usually do not attend her premieres but did Wednesday night. 

'Well, oddly, we usually go to the El Capitan, that's where we take the kids. That's the closest theater to us,' Jolie said. 'This is the first time they were able to come to mommy's premiere.' 

Maleficent is Disney’s modern reimagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale, and Jolie stars as its villain. 

The couple’s five-year-old daughter, Vivienne, also stars in the movie as a young Princess Aurora.

However, while her twin brother Knox, along with Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh, joined their 38-year-old mother and father, the little actress skipped her red carpet moment

SEDIUK: A SERIAL RED CARPET PEST DETERMINED TO PRANK THE STARS

Sediuk is a serial red carpet pest and only last week tried to put his head up America Ferrera's skirt at the Cannes premiere of How To Train Your Dragon 2.

In 2012, Hollywood's nice guy Will Smith angrily slapped Sediuk on the face after he tried to kiss him on the lips on the red carpet at the Men In Black 3 premiere. 

Will managed to dodge two lunges, with each kiss landing on his cheek, before he pushed the professional fool away and gave him a limp tap on the face.

Footage showed the angry actor and rapper telling him: 'Hey man, what the hell is your problem?'  

At the 2013 Grammys, he was arrested after crashing the stage just as Adele was about to receive her award. 

Sediuk ran to the podium to accept the accolade from Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull before the Skyfall singer could get up the stairs and later spent the night in a police cell.

In January of this year, Bradley Cooper was surprised at the SAG awards when the journalist lunged at him.  

He knelt and hugged the actor around his waist, putting his face in Bradley's crotch to the star's discomfort and embarrassment.  

And at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, in February, Leonardo DiCaprio became the latest A-lister to fall victim to red carpet prankster.  Sediuk, also grabbed the star around the waist in a similar move to what he did to Cooper.  

However, DiCaprio did crack a nervous smile at the gag.

My thoughts exactly @evolution and it's sad to say @Big Woman and @Tall Island Girl... that's probably what these red carpet premier owners are awaiting. They're not concerned for the well being of their clients at all, just the publicity. It's on record for years now of this man's behavior. Yet, still all he ever receives is a slap on the wrist smh. Either he's going to hurt someone or they're going to hurt him. Bottom line... someone will get hurt if this matter and the seriousness of it continues to go ignored.

Pitt was never touched. Stop reporting false news to get clicks. The guy was subdued before he got to Pitt.

If Brad was my protection detail, that won't have happen...he would have be neutralized before he even get close.So I would fire the whole protection detail because, he could have been stab in the heart instead of being punch in the face.
