Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie Oblivious To Oscars 'Leg' Craze

Angelina Jolie claims she didn't pay attention to the internet craze that emerged following her appearance at this year's Oscars in February. The Hollywood star caused an online storm by wearing a black velvet Atelier Versace gown which exposed her right left.
It kick-started one of the most popular internet memes in recent memory, following on from the huge Keanu Reeves craze of a couple of years back. Though thousands of fans photo-shopped Angelina's right limb onto famous landmarks, the actress says she was oblivious to it all, telling the Huffington Post, "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". Jolie attended the awards with her partner Brad Pitt, who was nominated for Best Actor for his performance in Moneyball. She was actually mocked on-stage for her risque outfit, with The Descendants screenwriter Jim Rash mimicking the actress after picking up the gong for Best Adapted Screenplay. Angelina went on to explain, "The people I surround myself with don't really talk about that kind of stuff.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".
Jolie now turns attention to fantasy movie 'Maleficent' - a take on the Sleeping Beauty tale told from the perspective of the princess' evil nemesis Maleficent.
