Angelina Jolie hit headlines on Sunday after turning up to the 84th Annual Academy Awards wearing a sexy split up her floorlength gown which revealed her toned right leg.
She received so much attention thanks to the saucy pose as she took to the red carpet with partner Brad Pitt that a spoof Twitter account was set up in her leg's honour. And it's already garnered 30,000 followers. And she caused such a stir 3,399 tweets were made about her per minute throughout the ceremony.
A spokesperson from the Academy said, "Angelina Jolie's appearance got a LOT of people talking - 3,399 tweets per minute about her in fact."
And various messages on the spoof site included comments such as: "Check out this leg over here!" "Still here. Great view, but thank god for the slit in this dress", and "You have to admit I'm one hell of a leg".
