Angelina Jolie’s pose with her right leg has become one of the oddest moments during Sunday night’s Oscars. The pose immediately turned into a joke when Community’s Jim Rash, who won an Oscar for co-writing the adapted screenplay for The Descendants, decided to suddenly strike the same pose on the stage.
“Honestly, as soon as I saw her pose like that, I was like, ‘I’m going to do that,’” Rash told Entertainment Weekly after the show at the Governors Ball. He said that the Academy has told them that only one person will speak if there are more than two winners for an award. Alexander Payne, who directed the film, was going to get the chance to speak, “...so I was like, ‘How can I make a moment?’ — selfishly,” Rash joked.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Jolie’s black dress had a slit that went almost up to her waistline. Like @JLosNipple, Jolie’s leg has also sparked a Twitter page, called @AngiesRightLeg. Apparently, more Twitter users are fans of Jolie’s leg than Jennifer Lopez’s possible nip slip, as 13,000 users are already following Jolie’s leg.
As EW notes, Jolie’s leg has also become popular on other social media platforms. A Tumblr page devoted to people Angelina Jolie’ing was started, much like those who posted pictures of themselves Tebowing.
However, Jennifer Aniston might have been the first to show off her right leg like Jolie. TooFab actually discovered that Aniston actually wore a very similar dress to the 2010 Golden Globes.
