Angelina Jolie Responds to ‘Jolieing’ Leg Meme
This year’s Oscars was a rather dull affair. The only saving grace came from actress Angelina Jolie, and her right leg, which she exposed through the slit black dress she wore on the big night. The resulting leg pose gave us, and the internet, enough inspiration to poke fun. It also didn’t take long for a new internet meme, affectionately called “Jolie’ing,” to go viral.
There’s even a website dedicated to imitating Jolie’s right leg exposed pose. Obviously, the actress was taken aback by this new ‘meme’ she had inadvertently created and had a few words to say about it.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Jolie responded by saying:
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.
Fair enough, it’s not like we expected the busy actress and super-mom to even know what a ‘meme’ is. “Jolie’ing” may come in many hilarious imitations, but nothing will ever beat the original. Take a look below.
