America Ferrera shocked by red carpet prank

May 17 2014, 3:12pm CDT | by

America Ferrera thought she was in a "crazy weird dream" when she became the latest victim of prankster Vitalii Sediuk.

The 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' star was shocked when the Ukrainian TV reporter - who previously ambushed Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith and Bradley Cooper at red carpet events and attempted to interrupt Adele's speech at the 2013 Grammy Awards - crawled under her Georges Hobeika gown at the film's premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival on Friday night (05.16.14).

According to Vulture.com, the 30-year-old actress told a friend after the incident: "I don't even know what happened. I feel something behind me, and there's this guy under my dress, and then two guys drag him away!"

But the former 'Ugly Betty' star quickly laughed off the now infamous moment, adding: "Of all of the things I prepared myself for, that was not one of them.

"If you'd asked me what my first experience at Cannes was going to be, I would not have imagined there would be dragons. I would not have imagined there would be, um, ankle biters on the carpet.

"It felt like a crazy weird dream. It was like, I was at Cannes in my dream. I was on the red carpet and Cate Blanchett was next to me, and then some guy jumped under my dress!"

The film's director, Dean DeBlois, was also shocked by the incident.

He said: "It was so confusing. I thought someone was coming to fluff her dress for the photo and all of a sudden he's, like, under it. And it was all sort of over before anyone could process it. He got hauled off and thrown in jail."

Not all of Vitalii's victims have been amused by his stunts. He was slapped in the face by Will after planting a kiss on his cheek at the Moscow premiere of 'Men in Black III' in 2012.
