Angelina Jolie's Right Leg Sparks New Meme: Is Jolie-ing Funny or Mean?
You!
Add Photos & Videos
It started with Angelina Jolie's protruding right leg during Sunday night's Oscar ceremony. Soon, a @AngiesRightLeg Twitter account was born. And now, it's a full-blown internet meme -- with dogs, inanimate objects and news anchors joining in on the fun. It even has a name now: Jolie-ing.

Much like Tebow-ing and Brady-ing, Jolie-ing is exactly what you would expect it to be: people imitating -- or being photoshopped to imitate -- Angelina Jolie's odd leg gesture at the Oscars. Look through the slideshow for our favorite Jolie-ing pictures. And let us know: do you think the new internet meme is funny... or kind of mean?

    You would think having legs that skinny, she would be hiding them under that dress, but I still don't like to make fun of people. Does she have an eating disorder or is she trying to be that skinny, I think it looks sickly.

    I think people perceive her as "stand offish" BUT I think she just wants to be herself and not what everyone else wants her to be. I believe she is happy with her FAMILY and WORK and wants to leave it at that. I can understand being hounded by everyone wanting to know her personal business.

    It's slightly funny, but this is a top actress glamming it up at the Oscars! Big deal that she posed with her leg showing. It's sad that our society has to make fun of people-which usually hurts the person, to find humor.

    I don't think it making fun of a pose she did is that mean/hurtful. I don't think it's that funny either, though.

    It was an awkward, FORCED pose, TRYING to look sexy. It just backfired! . She thinks she is looking hot. You did not see Aniston forcing a pose in a similar dress worn in the past and she rocked the look. Jennifer was natural and that is how sex appeal should be. I felt embarrassed for Jolie when I saw her strike the phony pose but had no idea it would explode like this. Most seem to be focusing on the skinny leg, but it was the FORCED effort to look sexy that bothered me. Stupid! I bet she is furious right now with all the stuff that is going on about it.

    Come on......mean? The woman is rich, beautiful and has everything handed to her on a silver platter. If people want to tease her for a silly pose she did with her skinny leg sticking out than so what? I actually didn't think it was an odd gesture...she was obviously trying to show off her dress which had a slit in it. Get a sense of humor!

    I wish you could check both. It IS FUNNY but it is also kinda mean. Angelina has always been a bit unbalanced in my opinion, and right now she is scary thin and probably anorxic. She has a need for attention and it did look very intentional and contrived when she purposefully stuck her leg out there like that. I was expecting a lot to be made of it, and I wasn't wrong. She is a beautiful woman, but I thought the understated dress and ladylike poise of Gwennith Paltrow was much alluring. Sometimes a little mystery is actually more intriguing.

    ... and mean. And JoeBob just fine with that. It was such a stupid awkward pose, and she apparently spent the whole night striking the dumb pose with her anorexic leg weirdly angled -- like a distended crab leg. What a dope.

    It might have been funny at first, but it's gone WELL beyond that now. Sorry, I don't get it! What's the big deal? She showed her leg! So what? JLo tried, as she always does, to draw attention to her at best mediocre boobs by practically exposing but that horrible gown just accentuation her big butt & hips & that ugly hair style just made it obvious that her ears stick out far more than her boobs! Yet everyone gushed about her. JLo & Diaz also stuck a pose, but everyone thought it was funny. Did it ever occur to anyone that Jolie might have done it as a joke? I don't get why so many people just love to tear her down. The only reason I can think of is plain old envy! She's a stunning woman in a gorgeous gown. Enough already with the leg jokes.
