Will Red Carpet Prankster Target Oscars?
Is 25-year-old Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk planning a dumb stunt to disrupt the Oscars?
That's the worry now over the dude who gave Bradley Cooper that cringe-inducing leg hug on the red carpet at the SAG awards.
He's the same guy who kissed Will Smith at a movie premiere and got his face slapped as a result. He also managed to sneak on stage with Jennifer Lopez at last year's Grammys.
At last February’s Academy Awards, he was questioned by cops when he showed up on the red carpet in a bizarre swan costume. The Academy had actually warned him in advance to stay away.
INSIDE EDITION’s Jim Moret put him on the hot seat. He asked, "Everyone that is watching your stunts is basically asking the same question, 'What on Earth are you doing?'"
Sediuk responded, "I am basically doing this for entertainment. The reason, to get a different emotion of celebrities that you never saw before."
Bradley Cooper showed a lot of class and laughed off the stunt, even helping the guy to his feet. But, Mandy Patinkin had a baffled expression on his face.

So, now the $64,000 question—Is he planning something at the Oscars?
He said, "Not yet because we have the Grammys coming up."
Moret asked, "Are you planning on pulling a stunt at the Grammys?"
Sediuk said, "I can't tell you."
