Jolie’s bare leg kicks back

Angelina Jolie’s bare leg led to many post-Oscar jokes, but it has kicked back at critics and become an internet celebrity in its own right followed by thousands.

The actress playfully revealed her right leg onstage during the gala ceremony.

As of last night, more than 34,000 followers including celebrities such as Rob Lowe, were drawn to the parody account, which posts quips such as “Look at the leg!” and “You have to admit I’m one hell of a leg”.
