Oscars Lea Michele-ly Played, Angelina Jolie


For what it’s worth, I think she looks great, but that will always be beside the point. This will never not be hilarious to me. It’s like Angelina shot herself up with vamp juice, and/or busted a hinge on her inner thigh. It just KEPT ON POPPING, like a frat boy’s collar.

    The fact that her leg is out in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE is absolutely cracking me up.

    And yes, very Lea-ly played.

      I lol-ed so much at how hard Jolie was trying…after a while it was sort of pathetic actually all that posing. I was waiting for someone else to do the Lea Michele comparison and I’m glad the fug girls did! It got people talking…Lea and Bjork and many similar stunt-pullers got people talking too – so that’s not a positive or anything. For me this was a fail…ditto with the too-red lips and the lighter hair.

    Maybe she thought if she flashed enough thigh people would talk about that and not her extreme need to eat a cheeseburger (or 10)!

      Are you kidding? Did you see her knee?! Even in the safety of my living room I cringed at the thought of that bony thing poking me. Her vampy pose when she presented the award for screenplay writers was so much more enjoyable when one of the winners (for ‘The Descendants’) mocked her pose – his tuxedoed leg was splayed at that awkward angle, his left hand was on his hip… loved it!

    she was looking particularly skeletal, tho. I say this as a big Angie fan. I am concerned. Girl needs to eat a cheeseburger!

      Her arms looked scary. I like her and wish I was this beautiful, but there’s nothing sexy about those arms.

      My thoughts exactly! she looks 6 years into a 10-year path to death by meth (have you seen the meme?). i’m shaking my head and hoping she hits rehab before she crashes completely. her poor babies. (and i am a big fan, too, but she clearly needs help.) when ELBOWS are the widest part of the arm, you need help.

        Um, sorry but aren’t elbows the widest part of everyone’s arm??

        Let me rephrase this. I am in no way underweight and the elbows are the widest part of my arm. If they aren’t for others, that’s cool too. I just find it so irritating that it’s OK for people to call her ‘a cadaver’ and ‘skeletal’ and ‘a corpse’ (in comments below). These are strong words, people. You don’t go around the Internet saying curvier celebrities are clearly unhealthy and need to put it away. Let’s be fair.

    And when she came out on stage to present….she struck her pose again. It was very strange and not becoming or sexy at all. I mean, who stands there to give out an award with their hand on hip? I about died laughing when the winner came up and posed too! I wish the cameraman had showed her face then.

      I loved that too! I think they didn’t show her face because she left the stage! When the 3 of them walked off, she was no where to be found. Usually, the presenter walks off with the winners. I’m thinking she got pissed and left.

      haha! for me it’s the leg thrust plus the arm/hip placement. I could see posing for cameras when she’s standing alone, but then when Brad was there too? She’s never done this before she maybe she was just being goofy? I didn’t know she had any sense of humor.

        I think she’s nutty enough (and independent enough) to do it mockingly. I think she does have a sense of humor – a dark one.

    I also love that all the “related” posts are showing up as Lea Michele. Haha!

    While she was presenting my husband (who never ever says a mean thing about anyone, how he married me I have no idea.) said “IS that Angelina Jolie?….Huh, she’s scrawny.”

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed how thin she is. I didn’t see her on the red carpet, only for presenting… and I could ONLY SEE how gaunt her face was and how thin her arms were. I didn’t even see the leg. Or the dress. Only how skeletal she was. That is not pretty nor anything anyone should aspire to.

    • steen

      Agreed. I know we are not supposed to talk about weight on here, but I was genuinely scared for her when I saw her present. Her face is sunken and her hair looked like it was thinning in the back. Forget a sandwich, please at least get some vitamins in your body, Angie.

    She looks absolutely ridiculous. I can’t even tell if the dress is good or not, it just looks heavy and awkward. Like she is going to fall over.

  16. NoFrank

    It was cute the first time but after that it was just weird, like there was something structurally wrong with the dress where she had to stand like that to keep it from falling off. Also she is starting to get that kind of gristly Madonna look to her limbs. Do not like.

    Maybe the black velvet was hot & she needed air?

    Personally, I’m glad that she and Rooney are bringing Pale Back. So tired of all the orange faux tans.

    Did you read that when Brad & Angelina appeared (late in the red carpet run), Sandra Bullock waved to the photographers and said something like “goodbye, they’re here,” and she left? I thought that was great

      If there was any chance in hell her thighs touched, Id say she had a bit of heat rash from all that velvet and standing like that was the only way they wouldn’t rub together.

    I unapologetically & unabashedly LOVE this! That dress is GORGEOUS! Her hair & makeup are PERFECT! Her playful leg & sexy attitude made me feel things that no heterosexual female should ever feel, but I did… And, I liked it! She was a sexpot last night & she worked it! FAB & WELL PLAYED, Angelina! Bravo!!! One of my BEST DRESSED!

    • Sajorina
      0

      I was thinking that the dress is made with a lot of velvet fabric and it is masterfully constructed in a very architectural design! Since it is black, that intricate pattern could not be appreciated unless there’s something to break the bulkiness of the skirt, so I think she may have been instructed to pose like that so the cameras could capture and the viewers could see that she wasn’t wearing a shapeless bag! And, I think it worked!

    Poor Angelina. She gets criticized for being too robot like and staid on the red carpet, then when she tries to compensate swings way too hard the other way and gets made fun of. Maybe the whole incident will make her able to laugh at herself, and she’ll loosen up and not try so hard!

    She looked nice on the red carpet but the whole look really seemed to fall apart when she was presenting, which was surprising. Her hair looked messy and the dress was a little sloppy. She usually nails the oscars presentation wise.

        Agreed. I think it’s hilarious. Maybe she got just a touch buzzed in the limo and thought, “you know what would be hilarious??” And then Brad said, “Do it honey! I’ll call our buds and tell them they have to take a shot every time you pop it!”

        I’m not sure why I like them so much, but I do, so whatevs. I find them not in the least annoying = )

      Dude, that’s what both me and my mom thought. We were wondering if maybe she was being silly and struck that pose before leaving the house and Brad came back with “I double dog dare you to pose like that at every possible opportunity tonight.” Anyway, it struck me as goofy and self aware so I went with it. Also I liked the dress.

      After seeing that first photo of her and Brad where he’s leaning into her and looking amused, I was thinking the same thing. I bet we’re right.

    I don’t think I have ever be able to see so much of the underlying structure of someone’s knee (bones, cartilage, tendons) while they were still alive. I would not be showing that leg off if I could help it, personally. Also this pose is absolutely ridiculous. What is she playing at?

      My thoughts, too. I have no firsthand knowledge of cadavers (thankfully) but this is what I’d guess a cadaver leg would resemble.

    I think Angelina is gorgeous. Like, not up for debate gorgeous. She’s just one of those people that is unequivocally good looking. That being said, I thought she looked RIDICULOUS with that leg last night. When she walked out onstage, she came very, very close to flashing the whole enchilada, and I’m not actually sure she didn’t. But the bigger issue is why these women don’t understand the beauty of a slit skirt. The sexiness comes from people being able to glimpse a flash of leg as you walk NORMALLY. Or when you cross your legs when sitting. If you want to wear a skirt that shows off a mile of leg, wear a damn mini skirt people!

      See, I don’t get why people think she is gorgeous. She’s OK, not ugly or anything, but too skinny and her facial expression most of the time just makes her look smug and bitchy and that’s totally unattractive.

    This is hilarious. I like to think that she has a great sense of humor and/or is totally wasted.

    Surprisingly, this whole leg-thing actually makes me like her. Maybe it’s because she looks happy and this woman has a killer smile. Well done.

      This is the first time I’ve seen a picture of her smiling and it does look great on her. But the leg thing makes it look like she’s in a chorus line for the “Tribute to Hollywood Waxers” number.

    It was just a few days ago on this site that I was commenting that she always wears such staid clothes almost as if to prove that all it takes is her beautiful face to get our attention, and then this….I didn’t watch all of the red carpet, so I missed her pre-show, but when she came out during the show and struck that pose, I honestly thought it was a joke. Then there was the second where we were waiting for her to joke about her pose….and she didn’t. At which point my husband asked out loud, “What’s wrong with her?” And I had to wonder too. It didn’t look sexy. It looked…odd. Even by Hollywood standards. She was practically doing the splits to get her leg out of the dress. Thought the award winner was hysterical as he was copying her pose. For a second I thought all three of the guys were going to do it.

    And the still photos just don’t show it, but on video you can see that her arms are excruciatingly thin, to the point where I honestly wonder if she is ill.

    I’ve said this elsewhere on the internets, but I think it bears repeating. The first time I saw it I was reminded of that scene in Bridesmaids where Melissa McCarthy flings her leg up and says “feel the heat? That’s coming from my undercarriage”.
    It honestly looks like she’s trying to circulate the air under her skirt because of some kind of personal problem.

    All that said, she still has the most beautiful face.

    That slit was so high I swear she flashed the audience her girl bits when she walked out on stage to present. My husband was like, woah! This is the worst I have seen her recently. Her hair looked thin and unhealthy, probably from lack of nourishment, her skin was shiny, and her cheekbones could cut cheese (which she should be encouraged to eat). She truly is a beautiful woman, so I was sort of sad for her. The leg, of course, was ridiculous, but could have been kind of a funny if she was being ironic, which, I don’t think she was.

    I honestly felt sad for her. She was definitely high and needs to get to rehab stat. She could barely read her lines, hasn’t eaten a real meal in many moons and showed off her sickness with her stick arms, strange posing and plastered-on smile. This woman is gorgeous (even *with* the plastic surgery she’s had — lucky her) but in desperate need of help. The dress was awful, too (black velvet??!) and it looked like the top half and lower half refused to live together. Sad. I didn’t dig the bright red lipstick either, as it made her look even more plastic.

    It sounds odd to say this, since she is Angelina Jolie, but I feel like the dress is wearing her. It seems really heavy and not as fitted to her as it should be, and the whole effect is that you see the dress and the slit in it and not the woman in the dress. It probably doesn’t help that I hate her lip color.

    I also love that her right leg has it’s own hashtag on Twitter. Now.

    Dress is absolutely beautiful but she ruined the whole look with the bizarre leg business. Here’s what I think happened. She and Brad had a fight, maybe over something that made her want to show him, as in I’ll show him who’s ____ (sexiest? baddest? I think he was embarrassed. She was always looking away and standing away from him, when she’s usually very close and cuddly. Didn’t see that last night. Her shiny face makes me think she was high or drunk too. I’m glad the camera didn’t go to him when she walked across the stage flashing her crotch and then struck that ridiculous pose at the mic.

    I feel like both she and Brad are constantly battling their own hype. They had huge hype as singles, and now as a couple…it’s gotta be hard to live up to that, and have a normal marriage, and then be married “in public” on the red carpet combining both of those worlds. I think that’s why their red carpet appearances always seem so awkward. One or the other always seems to be embarrassed by the shenanigans of the other. Like, sometimes Brad is into BEING BRAD F’ING PITT and she’s all, let’s keep it real. Then vice versa and they can JUST NEVER BOTH BE IN THE SAME MOOD AT THE SAME TIME. So it just gets awkward and embarrassing and we get…Brad’s cane. Angie’s thigh. Terrible hair. Etc etc etc.

    If I liked her at all or thought she had a funny bone in her body, I might think this was a send-up of every celeb who poses like that. Since I think she’s insufferable, I just think she got drunk and decided to play to the cameras.

    Dress: Inoffensive. Pretty freaking classy, if she hadn’t been sticking her leg out of it at every opportunity. Not my favorite, but not going in the burn bin, either.

    Behavior: Befuddling. Slightly intoxicated? Trolling the world? Desperate? Out-of-her-usual-character, for sure. I can’t even guess at the explanation.

    Comments: Can’t read ‘em to agree or disagree, FYI. I’m at the point where I always skip reading the comments about any very thin woman, because half of them are always “eat a sandwich, you’re making me uncomfortable!!!11!!1″ and it riles me. Are we her doctors? Are we her friends or her family? No, correct? Time to lay the hell off, no matter what our opinions may be.

      This is a woman in the public sphere who looks dangerously, unhealthily thin. To insist that people ignore that is not good. These women promote looking like this to young girls, which causes huge and dangerous health issues. I know most sites don’t want us to comment on this, but the woman is not just normally thin. Her arms and waist look like that of a child, she looks very pale, she is acting very bizarrely. Something really bad is up.

    Perhaps it was a red carpet tribute to Courtney Stodden? It had that same cringe-worthy, what-the-hell-is-she-doing, this-is-way-creepier-than-sexy feel to it.

    Angeleanya leg out real far. Somebody had to say it.

    I’ll venture out that it was a bet she lost with Clooney and she HAD to pose that way all night. She put on a brave face and a gorgeous smile, but he had the last laugh. Either that or her dress was actually trying to swallow her whole and she was desperately trying to escape it.

    I heard a great theory on her leg popping:

    So George Clooney and Brad Pitt are always pranking each other. Like, George paid off Brad’s limo driver to not unlock the doors when he arrived at some event so that Brad couldn’t get out of the car. They’ve been trying to one-up each other for years now. So the theory is the George got Angie in on the prank, so she’d pop her leg the entire night just to baffle Brad. I highly doubt this is the case, but the idea that this is some long-planned shtick of George’s just to make Brad go crazy makes me laugh. I’d love it if this were true, because that would make Angie a really good sport.

        …yes, humorless! That’s why this posing is mystifying and awkward. The only acceptable explanation is that she was mocking herself, but since she seems to be humorless it’s just super awkward. And funny for other reasons!

      eee – I am totally on board that this is some wackadoodle bet with Intern George! I’ve don’t think she is jokey-jokey funny, but I do think she has a dry wit and is not particularly interested in playing the celebutard game of “Look! Stars are just like us! Try Angie’s favorite cookie recipe! This month only in Good Housekeeping!”

    Shiloh put Krazy-Glue on the left hip of Angie’s gown, and she’s just trying to get her hand unstuck, using the akimbo thigh for leverage. :)

    As long as we are not calling each other names, I think it’s okay to state the obvious.
    The woman is way too thin and she was either high or has some serious mental issues.
    She sports way too much ink for me to like her in a sleeveless dress and she was working that slit like a call girl.

Also, and this is just my opinion, of course, but Angie looked high/drunk. And if I ever hear about the George/Brad “prankster stunts” again, I will open a %^&$#*@ vein.

    I’m just glad her leg (and Jim Rash’s pose) outshined the ridiculous stunt Sacha Baron Cohen did with Seacrest.

    • Bedelia
      0

      YES! Thank you. I thought his stunt a bit inconsiderate as I doubt anyone would want to be stained or soiled for the rest of an evening on camera and so it worked out well for Ryan Seacrest bc the focus was off him the next day in the media.

      As for the leg — I have no personal or emotional feelings about any celebrities at all, though I do look up to and respect my favorite writers, intellectuals, philosophers and Mother Theresa bc through their work, we have gotten a glimpse of what goes through the hearts and minds, and yet i also know they are humans, and as such, have foibles as all humans do.

      I think AJ is a beautiful woman and I thought she looked good last night — a far cry from the bulky, rumply white satin number which I personally (and possibly alone) thought did not highlight her beauty. But to go out on a limb in order to dream up well-stretched possible scenarios in order to condone/promote/deem appropriate, or protect the image of someone you don’t know personally, for a stunt which, if pulled by someone less idolized, most would absolutely laugh at, seems an unhealthy degree of pedestal-placing. She messed up, she did seem a bit off or maybe even tipsy (it happens to people, even the best of us, we are all human) and yet the apologists so need it to be some joke on all of us. That seems unhealthy to me, like the sort of behavior best reserved for loved ones, those that one actually knows. What I saw of the audience reaction was not positive reinforcement; it was befuddlement, second-hand embarrassment, cringing, and wonder.

    I’m just going to assume that she pulled a Lea Michele on purpose. Maybe she was “sticking” (that bony, bony thigh!) it to all the haters. I might actually prefer the aloof, I’m so much better than you, and so above it all Angelina Jolie though.

    To support my point that the usual Brangelina closeness was missing at the awards. And that the dress has a compelling bodice…that is entirely too big for its wearer. And that she looks tired, angry, stressed and maybe “medicated.” I truly truly admire her and I hope she’s fine next time we see her:

    I dig it. Kind of vampira-goth, only not so heavy-handed as the vial of blood around the neck.

    I get the impression that she DOES have a good sense of humor, which is why Johnny Depp said they had fun making The Tourist and that’s why he called her a “dame”…though that’s neither here nor there if we’re talking about her clothes.

    I really have to wonder why people who have taken a dislike to this woman insist on telling the rest of us so every single time she is on the site. It is so tiresome.

    Not a huge fan (mostly because of the joining up with Pitt, I guess), but I found this hilarious. There’s no way that she didn’t find it at least a little funny. She might have lost a bet, or be drunk, but I have another theory: it’s a distraction tactic! Look, girl’s smart. She knew Brad wasn’t going to win, and when he didn’t she’d have to deal with him combing the interwebs looking trying to take down anyone who said he was out of his league and would never again be nominated. She played the rest of awards season right and didn’t call attention to herself, but come Oscar time she pulled out the (metaphorically) big guns. What better way to make people forget that Brad just lost and to keep them away from shots of his tears than by flashing some crazy leg, all the while sending up starlets who have no idea how to wear the same thing?

  76. Daffodil

    She kind of reminded me of a Barbie doll that’s had its leg ripped off and then shoved back on, but at the wrong angle. That stance was anything but ladylike. There ARE ways to stick your leg out all over the place without looking like you’re trying to pee standing up. Lea Michele does it all the time. No, you don’t want to see so much of anyone’s leg when they’re ostensibly wearing clothes, but at least with Lea you don’t wonder if her leg is attached incorrectly.

    I think she’s gorgeous. I like this dress, although it does look mighty heavy. When I saw her present and she did that deliberate, awkward pose, I immediately thought it was a prank, or she was making fun of someone. But then it became so “The Office” awkward, because she didn’t laugh or acknowledge it. And then she stumbled over her lines, which made me think she was nervous.

    Does anyone else think Brad always looks mildly terrified around her?

        I am beginning to think you are possibly Angie herself. I heart her with an unreasonable passion, but I don’t think she looks healthy, even *if* you don’t talk about her weight.

        Perhaps she is early preggo, doing the leg thing to distract, and experiencing morning sickness… Long shot, but the alternatives are distasteful to me. Meanwhile S, dial the defense back a little. Mostly folks here are concerned, mostly.

        Maybe a fight with Brad? Their body language wasn’t too friendly. I have had my bitchy moments when I have deliberately ruined something for my husband out of petty meanness. Don’t judge….

    When she came out and did the leg thing, I thought it was about to be part of her presentation. Sort of how when BC introduced her as the original girl with the dragon tattoo (paraphrasing). It just ended up looking awkward and then hilarious thanks to the winner afterwards.

    I’m all for these people removing the sticks from their butts, but for me, this came off as one of those aloof moments. She seemed so serious lol. Especially when I heard/saw she was doing it on the red carpet.

    I’m not surprised by the leg pops all night, because Angie never met a high slitted skirt she didn’t like.

    I’m totally neutral when it comes to La Jolie’s personality, since I don’t know the gal, but I did get the feeling that she was either pulling a prank in cohoots with George, lost a bet, or was trying to hit a note of self-deprecating humor and just didn’t quite manage to pull it off in any instance. Probably nerves.

    As for the dress, I think it’s all wrong for her body and seems to be wearing her rather than the other way around. Like many posters here, I too get the sense that she just doesn’t care all that much for fashion and likes to keep things simple and unfussy. That, given her striking looks, clothing seems kind of beside the point.

    the leg thing i just find hilarious. TEAM THIGH ALL THE WAY.

    i actually thought that her leg was looking quite shapely and hot. actually, it probably was hot and that’s why she kept airing it out. after all, she was wearing about 7kgs of black velvet, that’s got to raise the temperature a bit.

    Since she’s never exhibited any sort of playfulness or sense of humor, especially with regard to herself, I don’t buy this was a prank or an inside joke. Nor do I think she would be willing to look so ridiculous at the biggest and most public event industry event of year for the sake of a few laughs among initimate friends. It doesn’t add up. What also doesn’t add up is how she’s usually the model of icy and elegant cool at these big events. This leg thrust looks like such a first timer or z-lister move. Could she really be that awkward when she goes off the regal/serene red carpet script she usually adheres to?

    I did think her face looked beautiful and some of the big smiles she gave were some of the best accessories she’s worn in years. I’d love to see more of that from her. I did like the dress whenever she wasn’t janking her leg out of it. I’m starting to lean toward she just really odd and not terribly comfortable in her own skin.

    I LOVED the dress! Black velvet is GORGEOUS, I will take it over beige/floaty/blah ANY DAY. The volume of the dress was good on her… I am and always have been Team Angie, but she has been looking worryingly like Drusilla lately.

    They didn’t broadcast the red carpet in my area (I was ropeable!) but when she walked onstage to present and stuck the leg out, it was definitely a WTF?? moment. But still, I am happy to see her vamping it up rather than playing all prim and demure.

    If I were to comment that I can’t even focus on Octavia Spencer or Melissa McCarthy’s dresses because I was too distracted by their size, everyone would be (justifiably) outraged. It’s a disgusting thing to make hateful, rude comments about someone, ANYONE’S, weight. To all the people who made comments calling Angelina Skeletor, corpse and cadavar, and saying that her physical appearance makes them sick: I am naturally quite thin, roughly the same size that she is. My legs and arms look like hers. So every time you say that her body disgusts you, you are saying that my body and the body of every other woman my size disgusts you. Honestly, y’all need to grow up.

      Very well said. And the degree to which most people here speculate (and present their unvalidated opinions as facts) is just hilarious: according to the comments, she was drunk, or high, or had a fight with Brad, or was playing out a joke on Brad with George, or a joke with Brad… but wait, we ALL know that she’s smug and humourless, so that can’t be it. Get a grip, guys. You see her on TV and in films and in photos: you know nothing about her, her life, her eating habits, her health or her relationships. Stick to what you can do: comment on her clothes.

      I liked the dress a lot and I liked that she rocked the pale skin. However, a touch of powder would have been good, to combat the shininess.

      That’s great that your metabolism is naturally high. Not everyone is so lucky. Your body type is about 2% of womens’ body types, so when I see someone like Jolie looking scary thin, I worry. I have sisters in the business (acting, modeling) and they have friends who consider lettuce an cigarettes an adequate lunch. The business drove one sister to bulimia. So yes, I tend to think a very thin woman is not that way naturally, because I know too many women who have eating disorders. When it hits close to home, I pay attention to it.

    I agree with whoever said it was an inside joke or a bet, maybe even a political statement of some sort.

    If so….genius! The structure of the dress, especially that weird side poof that she keeps resting her left hand on, completely hides a potential bump. And she used her crazy leg to attract everyone’s eyes away from her belly.

    No idea if it’s true or not, but it would also explain why she’s so smiley in the pics. She tends to look kind of giddy in pictures when she’s preggo.
