If Angelina Jolie isn't careful, her right leg is going to snatch the next star role right out from under her.
It's not that the pose the actress struck at the Oscars was unusual - a number of stars have purposefully displayed a scintillating bit of skin through the slit of a gown (with exhibit A being Jennifer Aniston, the ex-wife of Jolie's partner, Brad Pitt.)
But Jolie's dedication to putting her right leg front and center has sparked a meme that popular culture just can't kick.
When it comes to celebrity couples who have been together for so long some assume they've already wed, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are certainly prime examples.
And yet, seven years and six kids later, they still haven't tied the knot, as they've famously said that they'll get married when it's legally possible for everyone to do so.
However, 48-year-old Pitt thinks that they may not hold out.
Much has been made of Angelina Jolie transitioning from actress to director with her latest feature "In the Land of Blood and Honey," but the pic is also her screenwriting debut.
The 36-year-old tells CNN that at first, she simply wanted to put words to the page.
"I sat down alone just to write something and I just did it in script form as an experiment, as a way of writing," Jolie explained.
Angelina Jolie says it was a shift to go from being the star to the director for her film "In the Land of Blood and Honey," but it sounds like the actress has taken to it well.
It was "great not to be in front of the camera," she said in an interview with "Nightline," but acknowledged that also being the screenwriter carried a new burden.
"When you're an actress, you use somebody else's words and you can always blame the director and the director can say the editor," Jolie says. "But the writer is the one that kind of sits alone in the room and writes what they think is funny, important, historical and topical."
If the acting thing ever falls to the wayside, maybe Angelina Jolie will reconsider a former goal: Becoming a funeral director.
The 36-year-old Oscar winner told CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday that she had a plan in place if she couldn't find her way in Hollywood.
"It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with the funeral," she said in the interview. "This whole idea of how somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way. If this whole acting thing didn't work out, that was going to be my path."
Tabloid editors are celebrating today: Brad Pitt revealed to Australia’s “60 Minutes,” via E! News, that he and partner Angelina Jolie might add to their brood.
The 47-year-old actor also said, in three years, he’d like to quit acting and take a seat behind the camera.
"I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together," he said. "Getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times [sic] otherwise."
