Taking Oscars pose talk with pinch of Salt

Comment on this story
iol scitech feb 27 angie oscar REUTERS Actress Angelina Jolie's red-carpet pose with her leg conspicuously exposed - a stance she repeated while presenting an award - inspired one Twitter user to create an account under the handle @AngiesRightLeg and to send out mock posts purportedly from the limb.

Angelina Jolie insists she "didn't pay attention" to jokes about her Oscars leg pose.

The 36-year-old 'Salt' star wore a black velvet Atelier Versace gown for the February ceremony and spent the evening standing with her right leg sticking out of the thigh-high side split - much to the amusement of the online community.

A Twitter feed was even set up in her limb's honour but the mother-of-six says she ignored the hype.

She told the Huffington Post: "I honestly didn't pay attention to it. You know what I mean? I don't watch those TV shows and if I go online and see something about myself, I don't click on it. "And the people I surround myself with don't really talk about that kind of stuff. I heard something, but I didn't pay any attention.

"It's as simple as being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night, and not really thinking about anything else."

Asked why she plumped for that particular gown, she explained to US Weekly: "I wanted to be comfortable and I feel sexy in black velvet." - Bang Showbiz
