Angelina Jolie's Right Leg Gets a Twitter Account
The handle, @AngiesRightLeg, snagged thousands of followers before the end of Sunday's telecast.
Twitter moves faster than the Oscars.
During the home stretch of ABC's super-long, semi-dull telecast (there, we said it), Angelina Jolie's right leg stole the Oscar thunder from the actual winners. Or so it seemed on Twitter, where her sultry Versace dress with the thigh-high slit spawned an satiric account on the micro-blogging site. Oh yes, someone with the handle @AngiesRightLeg is now posting messages like, "Leg here!" and "Look at meeee!!" and "Don't forget about me!!" There were 2,000-plus followers even before Jean Dujardin was named best actor.
The profile photo is -- surprise! -- a cropped photo of Jolie's right leg. The actress and director strutted the Oscars red carpet alongside partner Brad Pitt, nominated for best actor in Moneyball ... wait, Brad who? (Everyone's too busy staring at Jolie.)
