Much ado was made post-Oscars about Angelina Jolie's bare leg emerging from her inky black Versace gown, spawning one of the Internet's silliest memes: Jolie-ing. The leg (right, if you must know) subsequently generated its own Twitter handle and was even superimposed onto great artworks like Leonardo da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man," all to hilarious effect.

But what does the actress have to say about it? Turns out, not much. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Jolie says good-humoredly:


I honestly didn't pay attention to it. You know what I mean? I don't watch those TV shows and if I go online and see something about myself, I don't click on it. And the people I surround myself with don't really talk about that kind of stuff. [Laughs]. I heard something, but I didn't pay any attention. It's as simple as being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night, and not really thinking about anything else.
