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!

Oscars 2012 Ratings Up From Last Year

The ratings for this year’s Academy Awards are in – and it’s slightly higher than last year’s.

Nearly 39.3 million viewers tuned in for Sunday night’s big award show hosted by Billy Crystal, up 4 percent from 2011.

EW also notes that the “program out-delivered three of the past four Oscars telecasts and ranked as ABC’s most-watched program in two years.”

The 2012 Grammy Awards, however, drew a slightly larger audience for CBS earlier this month, most likely “boosted by the death of Whitney Houston.”
