Los Angeles: Hollywood actor Brad Pitt was hit in the face while he was obliging his fans with his autograph at the premiere of ‘Maleficent’ starring his partner Angelina Jolie, police said Wednesday.

The attacker apparently jumped over the fence to hit the actor at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, California, where the premier was being held.

Thankfully, Pitt wasn’t injured. The police caught hold of the man and took him in custody. The motive of the attacker has not been determined as yet. He was unarmed but had clear intentions of assaulting the Hollywood star.
