Angelina Jolie Addresses Leg-Baring Oscar Pose

Angelina Jolie Addresses Leg-Baring Oscar Pose

Angelina Jolie is speaking out for the first time about her much-buzzed about pose at this year’s Academy Awards.

The 36-year-old actress showed some leg in an Atelier Versace gown both on the red carpet and on stage at the Oscars – a move that led to her right leg even getting its own Twitter page!

“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,” Angelina told The Huffington Post.

“And the people I surround myself with don’t really talk about that kind of stuff,” she added with a laugh. “I heard something, but I didn’t pay any attention. It’s as simple as a being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night, and not really thinking about anything else.”

And there you have it!

  • Alaia

    @shac: While presenting an award, though? It’s not the media making fun of her for it. It’s the whole world. People on tumblr, Jim Rash etc…

    • When the producers of James Bond were desperate to find the right new Bond (before deciding on Daniel Craig) and couldn’t see the right candidate anywhere, they actually considered changing the sex of the famous spy to allow Angelina to take over. They reckoned she was the only ‘man’ for the job.
    GDW -
    This isn’t accurate. Angie wasn’t approached to be the new Bond. She was approached about being the Bond girl in Daniel Craig’s first Bond movie. That’s when she said she told Amy Pascal that she didn’t want to be a Bond girl – SHE WANTED TO BE BOND. A few years later, after Tiny Tom dropped Edward Salt because he thought it was too similar to his MI character, Sony co-prez Amy Pascal asked Angie if she was interested and when Angie said yes they changed Salt from a man to a woman and rewrote the script specifically for Angie. Any other actress would give her eye-teeth to be a Bond Girl – but not Angie. That’s why she’s bad ass and every other actress out there is a wannabe bad ass making shittty romcoms.

    Oh yeah…one other thing…didn’t really care for the Madge reference. If it’s an article extolling Angie’s individuality and pointint out that she’s not who the media says she is, then it needs to stay focused on her and not bring other celebs into it. Plus…I just don’t like Madge…LOL!

    Read somewhere last year Brad was going to play John Lennon. Do you know if this was true, or just more name-dropping.
    LMAO. I don’t know how I missed this one. Obviously I’m not privvy to Brad’s work plans, but this sounds like the usual name-dropping to hype interest to me. Brad couldn’t pull of British accents in for Snatch or Troy…but he’s going to try to imitate Lennon’s funky Liverpudlian accent? I just can’t even imagine that…

    Jolie má pravdu toľko nevraživosti a hlúposti už zaznelo na jej adresu , že keby ivšetko vnímala tak by sa z toho zblázdnila. Angelína je super a ak budú všetci kritici pomáhať vo svete tak ako Jolie potom majú právo kritizovať.

  • Dasha

    What’s the fuss about it! She had a beautiful dress and she was sexy as hell deal with it, the media is so boring and stupid.

  • SD

    It is very easy for people to sit behind computers & criticize. Unfortunately people doing that are either young, fat & ugly or old and dated like Joan Rivers.
    If you had legs like Jolie would have been selling them around. stop being invejosas & appreciate the beauty, it is to be seen!!

    There are only two beautiful people in show business AJ and Angelina Jolie!!

  • Sally

    She is so full of it, she lies with impunity … didn’t know that all of Hollywood was laughing at her, besides the media storm the next day, I heard she was the biggest joke a the Vanity Fair after party, I might believe she didn’t know when she left the stage because she was obviously on something, but unless she lives in LaLa land this lying anorexia narcissist knew.

  • alw

    i dont believe this post,because angelina would never talk to huffington post. you can tell when brad and angelina is out of the spotlight,we get all this nonsense. why no one is talking about who won the oscar. and another no one gave mark walberg credit for stating weinstein would do a sweep on the academy,but we comment on a leg.

  • William Shakes

    I think the lady doth protest too much.

  • Kevin

    alw, you’re probably right, this comment is very unlike Angelina.

    I love love love her…yeah, it wasn’t her finest moment but the attention it got was ridiculous.

  • Formality

    Bitch, you knew what you were doing. Stay fake, heifer.

  • anustin

    hmhmhmhh… wish got that legz!!!

  • pat

    jared – check your grammar in paragrah #4 …. “it’s as simple as a being a woman ….” ?? As for Angie, i don’t think she has the time to sit around and worry about what she will or will not do at an awards ceremony; her life is far too busy and rewarding to ponder if she should stick her leg out or not. She doesn’t need to attract attention – it just naturally comes to her.

  • Emma

    I’m absolutely sure she watched this video. At least once. She’s so into ONU and humanitarian work.. she must be well-informed. I just don’t understand why she always want to appear as a “off media” women. The media pays her bills!

  • trt

    @Alaia: Who the sh.t is that rash? If he was a hit, he would have been the guy they would have made a twitter account for. Her shoe is more important than that guy (who thought he was being cute. Turned out to be a jerk!)

    And for your information, Angelina doesn’t conduct an interview by herself. Somebody was still interested enough to ask about her leg so she answered. Is it her fault that people are so intrigued by her?

    You wouldn’t know about that of course since you’re still on that leg issue, right?

  • Marcheline

    I’ve read she got so mad with her stylist. She must be very fussy.

  • juju

    she’s breathtaking beautiful
    nd that moment was
    the best thing from the oscars
    sexy nd fun

  • plez

    If you did not read the internet or watch entertainment shows you could avoid it really easy. Watch real news. Read real news and you would certainly have missed this silly story.
    Angelina quote is probably part of a bigger interview but Huffington like Jared want to get hits by promoting this.

  • anustin

    gorgeous to the max!!!!!

  • juju

    at our resident crazy stupid envy
    jealous fat troll
    2 pages w/ her crap
    why does she waste her time?
    they r thump down in secs
    poor thing
    shes a waste of space nd oxygen

  • alw

    thanks kevin, i think the reason we see post like this one because of the hits brad and angelina get.. have you seen other actors and actress post they sometime get 2-50 hits and brad or angelina get 200-1000 hits.

  • busted

    Well believe it or not. I was not online most of the day.. and guess what nobody I came in contact with mentioned Brad or Angelina. Nobody talked about Hollywood at all.

    some of you think the world revolves around gossip sites. It doesn’t. Everyone is not tweeting their every move or hanging out on gossip sites or watching the shows.

    Stop being so silly. YOU can avoid gossip easily. Don’t watch the shows and don’t go to those sites. EASY.

    Angie is still the hottest ticket in the world. The trolls will be here whinnying about her. Good she gave you freaks something to do over the weekend. She is with her man and kids. YOU are here talking about her once again.

    See the difference.

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Your post should not be thumbed down. I am sorry it has been. I will repost what you wrote.
    “Jolie má pravdu toľko nevraživosti a hlúposti už zaznelo na jej adresu , že keby ivšetko vnímala tak by sa z toho zblázdnila. Angelína je super a ak budú všetci kritici pomáhať vo svete tak ako Jolie potom majú právo kritizovať.”
    As best as I can, I make it to be Slovak language? Below is from Google Translate.
    “Jolie is right so much hostility and stupidity has already voiced its address, that if ivšetko perceived to be of the zblázdnila. Angelina is a super and if all critics to help in the world like Jolie then have the right to criticize.”
    And you are right! When others do the wonderful works Angelina Jolie does, then they can criticize her. But others doing the work Angelina does respect her and praise her for the good work she does.

  • BS

    Fame HO who is obsessed with her image

  • Rose

    Angle looks so beautiful in her Oscars black gown the troll(s) are having a meltdown. That’s the power of the Jolie. Show the right leg Angie, your fans love it. Troll, keep foaming at the mouth like mad dogs, lol.

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Love how The Jolie just brushes off the silliness of the media.
    She and Brad have more important things to attend to; like rearing their 6 beautiful children and their projects and movies and Miraval.
    Beautiful couple doing very nice things to help so many. Congrats to Brad on a successful fund raiser and thanks to him for helping to resurrect the 9th Ward. The houses are spectacular.
    I hope the family is enjoying some quiet, fun filled time away from the spotlight.


    Jared and Huttington Post makes fake a Angie tolding…poor Jared!Whitout Angie or Brad News,your posts are so boring,like a Oscar!

    Iva your comment is very positive, but not many people here speak Slovak. Try English or Google translation. I agree with everything you said.

  • Angie

    Food? Eating? what’s that huhuh I don’t think of that kind of stuff and I don’t hang with people who eat. The way I look at it I just rent my food for a few minutes.

  • Sarah.

    omg, seeing that picture.. and her leg.. it’s just really out there. hahaha. She must have seen a picture of herself and saw her leg.. and seen how ridiculous it looks.

  • ladyb

    Love AJ but I don’t believe her one bit here. It would have been hard not to pay attention to it. Didn’t her spokes released a statement about her doing for the paps. Sorry, not buying it.

  • daral


    these quotes seem fake.
    angelina choses huffington post to talk about her leg and nothing else?

    seems faked quotes to me, unless i hear an audio inteview, i call BS.

  • Kodak

    I think she looks so good, in fact, my first comment about her and the oscars was about her pose. Very cool.

  • I am THE center- Ang

    Shi wears boy’s clothes? Never noticed. I don’t surround myself with people who notice gender. haahaa. We talk about highminded things, like poop.

  • daral

    where has angelina been to give an interview to anyone lately???

    fake quotes are fake.

    angelina has nothing to promote at this time, she just talks to huffingtonpost about her leg?

    nope, not angie’s style. sorry, i don’t believe these quotes at all.

  • Dee Nile

    For someone who has conveniently blown this whole episode off as nothing, she sure had a beet red face when she was mocked.

  • blotbuzz

    That is the most b.s. thing I have ever read. Every WOMAN especially Angelina knows what to do in every dress and gown they wear. There is no such thing as OH I DIDN”T KNOW… Give the world a break. It would be best to say, yes I felt sexy and therefore I expressed it. Seriously
