Angelina’s right leg is a Twitter sensation

Sometimes a girl’s just got to stick her leg out. Angelina Jolie showed true commitment to working the thigh-high slit of her Atelier Versace gown at the Oscars.

Her leg-out pose proved a lightning rod for almost-instant parody. The recipients of the best adapted screenplay award, which Jolie presented, mimicked her pose as they accepted their Oscar.

One fast-fingered fan even started a Twitter feed in tribute to Angelina’s well-displayed right leg. Called (go figure) Angelina Jolie’s Leg, the account has attracted more than 27,000 followers since it was opened on Sunday evening.

The anonymous poster tweeted messages like ‘Check out this leg over here!’ and ‘Behold: it’s me!!’ during the Oscars broadcast.

Then it was time for the Photoshop pranksters to do their work, adding the leg onto other Oscar attendees, from Glenn Close to Christopher Plummer. It goes surprisingly well with a tux, no?
