Angelina Jolie did her best to remind America last night that she's got legs, and she knows how to use 'em. Working her black velvet Atelier Versace dress throughout the Oscars yesterday evening, the actress perpetually struck a pose with her right leg jutting out, her left hand on her hip, and her mouth in a tight smirk. She did this solo, with partner Brad Pitt ... and even when flanked by Brad's adorable mom!
The leg flaunting continued on stage in the space formerly known as the Kodak Theater, that is until The Descendants co-writer Jim Rash mocked her on live television. And he wasn't the only one -- before the broadcast was even over, a Twitter feed ode to the infamous leg, Angelina's Right Leg, was up and running and by Monday morning, it had more than 12,000 followers.
Come on, Angelina! You're gorgeous, you've got a dashing (not to mention Oscar-nominated!) partner, a darling family and you're a global superstar. Why so serious?
