Last week during the liveblog, since we hadn’t had one after the Oscars, and since I keep getting emails about it, I posted a poll asking participants whether or not they wanted to talk about the Jolie’s leg. 70% of respondents were no longer interested so we put her leg in a corner and moved on. The next day, the Jolie’s leg raged back into the headlines after The Huffington Post asked her about her leg incident and all the hilarity that ensued at her expense. This was Angelina’s response:

“I honestly didn't pay attention to it. You know what I mean? I don't watch those TV shows and if I go online and see something about myself, I don't click on it. And the people I surround myself with don't really talk about that kind of stuff. [Laughs]. I heard something, but I didn't pay any attention. It's as simple as being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night, and not really thinking about anything else.”

No, actually, I don’t know what you mean. Do you mean that you weren’t aware that you were the joke? Because...whatever. Or do you mean that you and the “people I surround myself with” are too busy Mother Theresa-ing to pay attention?

I mean...

Wish that for once she’d have a sense of humour about something. Anything.  

Hey Angelina, what did you think of Jim Rash and the subsequent “Jolie-ing” movement he inadvertently created?

How about something clever in response? Sassy. Cheeky.


After all, it’s not like her leg was making an appearance at the Save The Children world conference; her leg presented at the Oscars. It’s ok to be fun when answering a question about the Oscars. Nobody is elevating humanity at the f-cking Oscars. You don’t have to elevate humanity when addressing the leg you made us all look at at the Oscars.

Where’s the personality???

There is a middle ground between kissing your brother and fighting for the rights of the disenfranchised. Can’t we see that once in a while?
