CANNES, France (AP) — A man rushed onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and dove beneath actress America Ferrera’s dress in a bizarre incident.

Security officials quickly pulled him away Friday as the man tried to hide under Ferrera’s voluminous dress before the premiere of “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”

It was a surprising development on a red carpet renowned for its strict decorum. Festival organizers didn’t immediately return messages about the incident.

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