Jolie's leg takes on a life of its own

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.

First there was actor and "Descendants" screenwriter Jim Rash's exaggerated pose during the Oscars ceremony (which he's said wasn't done to mock the celeb), and then the "Jolie" made its way to daytime TV (with a detour at the Statue of Liberty).

The co-hosts of CBS' "The Talk" put their best legs forward in their own black gowns, while "Live!'s" Kelly Ripa, with help from Lucy Liu, proved that one doesn't even need to wear black to pull it off.

Hopefully, the rumors that Jolie was "steamed" about the reaction aren't true. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    I am undecided if this looks more like a yoga Warrior pose, a tai chi Horse stance or a prelude to a soft p0rn movie.

    Can jolie ever be mentioned without Jen? So sick of it. Get over it people. I'm sure the women have and If they haven't, they are destined for a sad life. On the leg "mocking," I doubt they were being mean-spirited as the word "mock" suggests. Furthermore, isn't imitation the highest form of flattery?

    I'm just wondering if the leg thing was a dig at Jennifer Aniston. If you look at the link, they were almost wearing an identical dress, with that same slit. I must say, though, Jennifer has the better looking legs.

    Why are people still giving this bimbette attention over her chicken leg? Sheesh, Aisha Tyler and Lucy Liu have nicer gams than hers.

    Who would have thought that a skinny leg and a peep toe heel would cause that much fuss?
