Your look at the five biggest and most buzz-worthy stories of the morning.

1. Brad Pitt Says Red Carpet Attack Makes Celebs Wary

Brad Pitt, who was punched by a man at the premiere of “Maleficent” last week, says incidents like this make celebrities more wary about interacting with fans.

“I don’t mind an exhibitionist,” Pitt told People Monday. “But if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped.”

3. Family Could Break GoFundMe Record to Save Child With Rare Disorder

The O’Neill family has been racing the clock to fund a cure for their 4-year-old daughter’s rare, terminal disorder, and in the process, they’re on track to break a fundraising record on GoFundMe.com.

Since early April, the O’Neills have raised more than $777,000 toward a cure for Sanfilippo syndrome, the deadly genetic disorder that’s now barely detectable in their daughter Eliza. It means she lacks an enzyme to break down heparin sulfate, which naturally occurs in cells, causing it to build up over time, causing a variety of medical problems. The result is that Eliza will lose the ability to speak by her 5th birthday, the O’Neills say, and she’ll die before she reaches her 20s.
