Angelina Jolie's Excuse for Oscars Leg Pose Is Laughable (VIDEO)

Eye Roll 11

angelina jolie leg poseAngelina Jolie has always come off as a tough cookie, a woman who really could care less if the whole country was snickering about her right leg for over a week now. Sources say surprise, surprise -- that's a complete facade. She's actually "horrified" about how she -- and her leg, of course -- came off on the Oscars red carpet, according to British magazine Closer. But is she shouldering the blame for that sky-high slit? Hell no, she's blaming her stylist!

The Closer source reveals, "She pays her stylist Jen a lot of money to pick things that will make her look drop-dead gorgeous, but she felt the dress swallowed her up and she had to stick her leg or it looked like she was wearing a bin bag. Now she's being laughed at when she's worked so hard on her look. She feels like a joke and is worried her reputation may have taken a hit." Oh good GRIEF! If this is true, someone (hey, Jen Aniston, you game?) really needs to knock Angie down a peg -- or 100!

To be honest, I don't want to point the finger at Angie alone. What is with these stars who think they can just wait until the last minute to pick a gown for the biggest event of the year (just watch Rachel Zoe's show and you know that it happens every time!) and sling mud at their hard-working, crazed, likely underpaid-for-the-crap-they-put-up-with stylists? It's silly -- style is so personal. Sure, you can pay someone to help you, to pull beautiful gowns and offer you options, but ultimately, even the creme de la creme of Hollywood stars needs to use her brain to make sure the dress she chooses is the one.

Which leads me to this: If Angie really had "worked on her look," she would have taken an active role in choosing her dress. If she had given it the test-drive an Oscar gown deserves before making its grand appearance, she would have realized it was a taunting Twitter trend in the making. Duh. I mean, I know she's a busy mom to six kids, a UN ambassador, Brad Pitt's lover, and an actress-turned-director, but the woman could have and should have found it in her schedule to try on her Oscar dress. That's all I'm sayin'.

Do you agree that it's wrong for Angie to blame her stylist?

Maybe blaming the stylist isn't the right approach, but the dress WAS seriously ill-fititing.  Perhaps if it was smaller she wouldn't have felt the need to pose in such a way?

I would also think that she would have tried the dress on prior to that day. If she didn't like it why did she wear it? So because she felt like she was wearing a bag, she thought awkwardly sticking her leg out of it would make her look any better? I seriously thought when she stuck her leg out on stage that she was setting up a joke, honestly. She looked stiff and ridiculous. I guess if she pays the designer to make her look good then she can fault her but wouldn't anyone want to try something on first to see if they like it or not?

I heard she was hiding a baby bump.

Good to see her looking ridiculous for a change. Of course I never thought she was all that great looking anyway, I'd choose Jen any time over her, and so would my hubby.

I thought it was the coolest thing I've seen in a long time.

The dress was fine, leg would show while walking. Actually quit elegant and festive, but no, she needed to stick it out to the side. It looked as she had fun doing this, so self absorbed.Even at presenting the Oscar it was like about her, clearly she made a big deal out of it, and the narcisism of it was parodied by on one of the Oscar recipients on stage. Well, audience is not always taken by hello-sailor poses, and is not so naive. Sorry, but it is not stylist's fault, but her own loo-at-me mood. She could stick the leg to the front, not on the side, and it could be much better, instead of this grotesque repeated posing.

Dress was fine, she just couldn't wear it to its advantage, so, but she is not a model, and couldn't resist extreme posing most of the time.

The slit is not the problem! She just looked ridiculous sticking her leg out all over the place. Doesn't she know the power of subtlety? People would have caught a glimpse of her amazing leg as she moved, and they would have been floored. Instead she had to make a show of it and it backfired. But really, who cares?

That dress was ugly, but she's beautiful so who cares.

There's a good chance the dress DID fit her at her original fitting, and then was too big by the time she wore it for the Oscars. Angelina is skinnier every time you look at her.
