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!

    Bravo Angie for owning your sexuality…..people just don’t know how to take a woman that truly owns everything about herself. She had fun and now everyone is talking about her and nobody about the award winners….Bravo Angie….no wonder she doesn’t have a publicist…she doesn’t need one…cause she flat out doesn’t care what anyone but the people she knows and loves and/or respects….love her!!

    “Brad was married when I met him? I heard something about that but didn’t pay attention. It’s just as simple as a woman wanting what she wants. If I put my head in the sand then it doesn’t exist”

    I think we should cut her some slack on this one. She has done hundreds of red carpets and really never makes a mistake. If you listen on the videos the photographers were yelling to her, “show us some leg!” and when she came out on stage, some in the audience were giving her catcalls, so she got a bit carried away . . . she’s human remember, she is entitled to one awkward evening.

    Correct me if I’m wrong. But didn’t Ticky say she wanted to be a Bond Girl? Obviously, the producers didn’t want her..

    Anon Says:

    How could she NOT know she was doing it? It looked really, really intentional. It looked like she was doing it on purpose – esp. wen she got on stage to present! Whatever. I could be wrong but that’s just how I saw it.

    Emma Says:

    Hard to believe that she would comment to Huffington Post about this, but maybe Maleficent’s producers want the issue put to bed so that it doesn’t come up during promotions. If it’s true then everyone now knows how she feels about it and we can move on ***yes, please**

    -So blase with attention that she goes out of her way to seek it , only to dismiss it as she throws it back at you.

    OMG, just noticed there is another Emma posting on page 1. That’s not me. I have to change my name . . . AGAIN!!

    @guest: Yes, she did. But she is too old to be a Bond girl, and she ain’t sexy. Halle Berry was a little older when she did Die Another Day, but did you see her in her orange bikini doing an Ursula Andress? She was hot! Ticky no matter what she did could never do anything like that!

    a film that hasn’t even started filming yet?
    and wouldn’t be out till early 2013 at the earliest? c’mon man

    the only reason i 10 % believe this is huffington post is big in the media, surely they would not risk looking like liars if angie’s team come out and say she never spoke to huffington?

    very weird these quotes, the timing, the subject, the website, all seems fishy to me

    what do other fans think?

    Susan Says:

    These are Quotes that Angie used before, Just don’t believe she did an interview with HuffPo, it is not her MO, to address silly stuff.

    Bass Says:

    This whole incident just goes to show what a star Angelina is. Only Angelina Jolie could garner this much press for doing something that almost every actress does when wearing a dress with a slit. She should be flattered people care so much.

    daral Says:



    now i think about, these quotes seem to come from an angie interview about how she copes with seeeing bad things as a UN ambassador, and then switching to fluffy events like red carpets that don’t mean anything in comparsion.

    Message Says:

    Say what you want about her, but Angelina evokes very strong feelings from people. Even this leg incident… People are always talking about her! She handles it fairly well, of you ask me.

    briseis Says:

    @daral: I can’t believe Angie would address this in an interview when she has nothing to promote, and with HuffPo, a known Angie hater??? Looks like cobbled quotes to me …

    nyob Says:

    The issue was not the dress or the leg being exposed. It was the odd posture that she kept up to stick her leg out as far as possible that made it entertaining. It was downright odd.

    GerrysGreenEyedWoman Says:

    Classic deflection. I don’t believe much of it. She’s like got her leg forcibly projected with her crotch split very provocatively, and more than once. Coincidence, chance, fate or circumstance?
    Feel as a woman keenly aware of her sex appeal, and feeling a confidence the dress brought out in her, knew shat she was doing feeling it has more depth, and message, than this non-statement. That said, who gives a flippin’ otter?! Just happy she’s happy because she’s found someone to bare her soul too, who turned her into a woman. I feel she knows how lucky she is to have snagged Brad… and he her!

    The Hunger Games Says:

    that’s what this is about – taking the attention away from JLaw – i heard brad was crushing on JLAw, so with the premiere, it makes sense that aj would come out and try to steal the headlines

    aj is such a liar – she knows everything written about herself

    It was not sexy IMO. That is your opinion.

    willy Says:

    If Angelina showing a bit of leg is all you can talk about, your lives must be very boring indeed. You poor things. If I had lovely legs like Angie, I’d show them off too. Too bad your not all like her, if you were, the world would be a much nicer place.

    NoThankie Says:

    She looked like a pale, frail, dumbass.
