Angelina Jolie's world premiere of "Maleficent" got second billing on Wednesday (May 28) when partner Brad Pitt was accosted at the event. Pitt was struck in the face by a man who leapt over a fence to reach the actor. Pitt was not seriously injured and authorities quickly rushed in to subdue the man - who turned out to be infamous red carpet prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who got in trouble just over a week before for crawling under America Ferrera's dress at the Cannes Film Festival. Sediuk was arrested for misdemeanor battery. Justin Timberlake held his first ever concert in Israel. The singer performed for a sold-out crowd in Tel Aviv. The stop was part of Timberlake's world tour which includes stops in Morocco, Portugal, and the U.K. before heading to the U.S for a summer leg. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt ended their 24 hour "Edge of Tomorrow" media tour in New York on Wednesday night. The duo landed in New York after beginning their journey in London with an early morning premiere, and a lunchtime carpet walk in Paris. "Edge of Tomorrow" opens in the U.S. on June 6.
