Angelina Jolie’s Oscar gown with thigh-high split inspires Twitter profile

Angelina Jolie’s Oscar gown with thigh-high split inspires Twitter profileMelbourne, Feb 27 : While `The Artist' bagged five Oscars at the 84th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, it was Angelina Jolie's exposed right leg that generated the most buzz on the night.

The 36-year-old actress rocked the Oscars in a black velvet Atelier Versace dress, which featured an enormous slit on the right-hand side.

The frock was a hit on the red carpet, but when she took to the stage to present Best Adapted Screenplay she struck a saucy pose that raised eyebrows.

Jolie stood confidently with one hand on her hip and cocked her right leg out through the slit.

The thigh-baring pose was immediately mimicked by `The Descendants' screenwriters Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash after they accepted the screenplay award from Jolie.

"I think the way Angelina stood could be the new `Tebowing'!" the Herald Sun quoted Patricia Heaton, of `Everybody Loves Raymond and `The Middle' as tweeting.

The Academy wrote on its Twitter account that Jolie's appearance "got a LOT of people talking - 3399 tweets per minute about her in fact," while her appendage even inspired its own Twitter profile, @AngiesRightLeg.

The account, which predictably featured a cropped picture of Jolie's leg as its avatar, tweeted comments like, "Look at meeee!!" and "Still here. Great view, but thank god for the slit in this dress." (ANI)
