Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie Reportedly Furious Over Oscar Mocking

Angelina Jolie is reportedly angry that her bizarre posing at the Oscars on Sunday (26.02.12) has been mocked.

The 'Changeling' actress wowed in the black velvet Atelier Versace gown with a thigh-high slit she wore to the prestigious ceremony at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles but her strange pose of sticking out her right leg has been the subject of much ridicule.

After 'The Descendants' writer Jim Rash mimicking her stance as he took to the stage to collect the Oscar for best adapted screenplay, Angelina was heard snapping ''Who is that guy?'' according to the Chicago Sun Times.

A source added: ''She was still pretty steamed but seemed to calm down quickly.''

Angelina's puzzling behaviour also resulted in a twitter page being set up, called AngiesRightLeg.

Tweets from the spoof account which has over 30,000 followers include ''Great meeting most of you for the first time last night at the Oscars!!'' and ''Left leg and I talked - everything's cool. Next Oscars, she gets the slit.''

Rash's little gag was rude, crass, and incredibly ungentlemanly. There's a time for goofing around like that, and it isn't standing onstage at the Oscars - especially not when it's a case of a 'man' mocking a lady. Rash wasn't at an after party - he was a guest at a formal gathering. He thought potentially humiliating the woman presenting him with an Oscar might get him a laugh or two. The joke was as selfish as it was tacky.Between the people who hate her for her politics and the people who hate her for her looks, he's unleashed a bit of a PR nightmare for the woman who handed him an award that for many is the highlight of their careers. Who does that? Not a gentleman, that's for certain.Headlines like the one selected for this article certainly don't help. Rather than accurately represent the facts contained in the body of the article ("She was still pretty steamed but seemed to calm down quickly"), the article is headed by the more scandalous title "Angelina Jolie Reportedly Furious...". Sorry folks, but based on your own reporting that's blatantly disingenuous and misleading. She was a little ticked, but got over it quickly.... Hardly the ongoing 'fury' declared by the headline.The pose was a bit silly, clearly... But a decent man would wait until he was among friends - or at least not in front of an audience of millions - to poke a little fun. Rash may be a good with a screenplay, but he's no gentleman.

@redacted:She's a celebrity and her own best p.r. person.The pose, used not once but many, many times throughout the evening, was used for effect, which she got. She stole the show not only from the winners of the awards but even her nominated husband. The news on Monday should have been about how a silent film and it's foreign director and actor took it all. Instead it was about Jolie's leg. Her politics and amazing looks aren't what made her the center of attention. It was her own antics. Jim Rash might have been the first to have a bit of fun with her strange posing but he certainly wasn't the last. Yes, she handed him the award but she didn't have anything to do with his winning it. In fact, it could be said she upstaged his well-deserved win with her awkward presentation. As a celebrity, she knows anything she does is open to interpretation and discussion. Which is why her make-out session with her brother at another Oscar night is still being talked about all these years later.
