Angelina Jolie's appearance at last night's Oscars ceremony has quickly become one of the most talked about moment. Her right leg was on display for the entire evening as it poked out of her strapless, Versace Atelier gown.
Wearing a thigh-high slit in her dress, Jolie spent a few moments rearranging it for photos, making sure photographers got the full length of the leg in shot. When she presented the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, she posed onstage with one hand on her hip and her leg cocked at an angle.
Adapted screenplay winners Nat Faxon, Jim Rash and Alexander Payne of The Descendants, even mocked her pose once they took to the stage.
Backstage, Jim Rash said: "I just saw her pose and I thought, you know what, we have exactly the same legs and I wanted to show everyone what it meant. It was a loving tribute. It was more like, oh, she's standing, great, I'm going to stand like that, too."
Jolie's right leg even has a Twitter account of its own, @AngiesRightLeg, which declares: "I'm a leg, get a load of me!" and "You have to admit I'm one hell of a leg!" So far the parody account has attracted over 10,000 followers.
