While many enjoyed having a look at’s sexy leg Sunday night at the Oscars, some were quick to slam the stunt, calling it a stupid move. “Fashion Police” host also blasted the mother of six for her thigh-revealing pose on the red carpet and on the Academy Awards stage.
Angelina Jolie made headlines after she kept showing her pale and lean leg from the inside of her black velvet Atelier Versace gown at the Academy Awards ceremony. “The Tourist” star was always thought to be quite a natural at Hollywood events, but she shattered that image Sunday night after she stuck to her exaggerated pose. Rivers also said that Jolie must have practiced a lot to perfect her posing.
"Angelina Jolie looked like a fool the way she posed," Joan Rivers told RadarOnline. "She took herself right out of that super star category because you now realize she stands in front of a mirror to figure out [what she looks like]."
Joan River’s daughter, Melissa, who is executive producer of the E! fashion show, agreed, saying, "She was demystified! She demystified herself and it's unfortunate because it always looks so effortless, and you think how can one person be so glamorous? It's because she practices!"
Joan Rivers went on to say that Angelina Jolie's behavior Sunday night acted as a reminder of her antics prior to settling down with partner, actor Brad Pitt.
"Have you ever seen anybody stand with their hand on a hip with a leg thrown out to open an envelope? No," Joan asked and replied himself, laughing. "This is the first stupid move she's made. She handles her own PR, career and it's all been very thought out. She turned around from kissing her brother on the carpet to being a representative of the United Nations and she's done it all."
Angelina Jolie's sexy leg pose started trending social networking websites on Sunday night soon after she hit the red carpet with Brad Pitt. The American actress thrust out her leg for the paparazzi leading to a flood of criticism with the phrase "Angelina's right leg" trending on Twitter. A new Twitter page even popped up devoted to it: @AngiesRightLeg.
Sunday night, Angelina’s pose on the Academy Awards stage was so noticeable that one of the adapted screenplay winners from “The Descendants” - Jim Rash, to whom she presented the Oscar - mocked her, striking a similar pose.
