A man rushed onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and dove beneath the dress of actor America Ferrera.

Security officials quickly pulled the man away as he tried to hide under Ferrera's voluminous gown before the Friday premiere of How to Train Your Dragon 2.

It was a bizarre incident on a red carpet renowned for its strict decorum. The man was later identified as Vitalii Sediuk, a Ukrainian prankster known for such stunts.

Yet Ferrera didn't seem ruffled on the carpet and was in good spirits at the movie's after-party, laughing with guests and taking pictures.

She declined comment on the incident, however, and festival organizers didn't immediately return messages about the matter.
