A man rushed onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and dove beneath actress America Ferrera’s dress.
Security officials quickly pulled the man away as he tried to hide under Ferrera’s voluminous dress before the Friday premiere of “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”
It was a surprising and rather bizarre development on a red carpet renowned for its strict decorum.

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.
The former “Ugly Betty” star was on her way into the Palais des Festivals for the world premiere of the DreamWorks animated sequel.
