Ugly Betty star 'red-faced' after ambushed by prankster

A prankster had to be dragged away by security during the Cannes Film Festival, after the man who appeared to be wearing a official accreditation, disturbed proceedings by crawling behind the cast of How To Train Your Dragon 2 and placing his head underneath actress America Ferrera's dress.

Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett, Ferrera, Djimon Hounsou and Kit Harrington were being introduced on the red carpet for the photo call. After the incident he was immediately led off and handed to a policeman.

The man is reported to be Vitalii Sediuk, an infamous Ukrainian television reporter who has pulled several similar pranks in the past, including kissing Will Smith at a Moscow premiere.
