What was up with that leg thrust?

(Newser) TMZ's typically subtle post-Oscars headline declares: "Angelina Jolie ... Needs a Cheeseburger." The gossip site has a picture of the Academy Awards presenter looking "INCREDIBLY skinny ... too skinny ... alarmingly skinny" last night. Skinnier even, if you can believe it, than she looks in the pictures compiled in our photo gallery (at left). The gallery also includes, of course, photos of Jolie's right leg, which she bizarrely flaunted not only while on stage—prompting an award recipient to mock her hip-thrusted pose—but on the red carpet as well.

The Daily Mail notes that Jolie constantly adjusted her slit-to-the-thigh Atelier Versace gown to show off her toned appendage, leading to thousands of social networking comments about "Angie's right leg." (Sample tweet: "Fun fact: Angelina Jolie only shaved her right leg tonight.") Soon enough the leg became a trending topic on Twitter, and then spawned its own Twitter account—which has more than 12,000 followers so far. For more: BuzzFeed compiled its favorite 10 photos of the leg, and the Huffington Post is apparently trying to make "Angelegging" a thing.
