Angelina Jolie 's leg-baring antics became one of the most unlikely talking points of this year's Oscars ceremony but the Salt star insists that she was unfazed by the attention. At the ceremony, she wore a striking black dress with a daring thigh-length split that seemed to have her right leg on permanent display. Following the night's entertainment, the internet became a hot-bed of jokes relating to her right leg. A Twitter account was even set up, supposedly belonging to her right leg and several works of art were Photo-shopped to include a picture of Jolie's newly famous limb.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, though, Angelina insists that she let the whole affair wash over her, saying "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. [Laughs]. 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."
At the time, though, it was reported that Angelina was angered when the screenwriters of The Descendants mocked her bizarre poses when they collected their award. Jolie allegedly left the stage, saying "who is that guy?" but quickly calmed down when Jim Rash's identity was revealed.
