Angelina ‘upset by Oscars taunts’

Angelina Jolie was reportedly 'steamed' when people joked about her exaggerated leg pose at the Oscars.

The 36-year-old star wore a black velvet Atelier Versace gown to the prestigious ceremony. It boasted a thigh-high split up the right hand side, which Angelina thrusted her leg through as she posed for photographers.

'She was still pretty steamed but seemed to calm down quickly.'

Angelina’s poses quickly becoming a talking point on social networking websites on Sunday night.

Soon after she appeared on the red carpet with her partner Brad Pitt, many started mocking her seemingly exaggerated stances. The phrase 'Angelina’s right leg' was soon trending on Twitter, and before long a Twitter account called AngiesRightLeg appeared.

'You have to admit I'm one hell of a leg…' posted the parody account.

'Left leg and I talked - everything's cool. Next Oscars, she gets the slit.'
