A man struck actor Brad Pitt in the face while he was signing autographs at the Hollywood premiere of a film starring partner Angelina Jolie, police said yesterday.


Pitt, a Golden Globe-winning actor, was at the premiere of "Maleficent", at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, California, when the man leaped over a fence and hit him, said Sergeant Leonard Calderon of the Los Angeles Police Department.


Pitt was not seriously hurt and authorities quickly subdued the man, who was arrested for misdemeanor battery and remained in police custody, Calderon said.


"The officers who were handling him said it looked like it was intentional, but at this point, it remains to be determined," Calderon said.


The suspect did not appear to be armed and investigators had not yet interviewed him to determine a motive, Calderon said.


"Maleficent" is Disney's modern reimagining of the "Sleeping Beauty" fairytale, and Jolie stars as the film's villain.
