“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. I heard something, but I didn’t pay any attention. It’s as simple as a being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night, and not really thinking about anything else.”
Well it sure took her damn long enough to answer the question on everybody’s mind: what the f-ck was up with the leg, girlfriend?
Angelina finally got around to addressing those pesky leg questions, and we come away disappointed. At least I did. I was hoping it’d be something like, “Oh, I was making a statement about how ridiculously blown out of proportion things can get when you talk about any given celebrity,” or “Crazy how I’m the queen of the world and I can do anything – even stick my pasty, bony-assed leg out like I’m flagging a taxi down with it – and people are still going to make a big fuss over it because I’M ANGELINA JOLIE MOTHERF-CKER.” This answer almost makes Angelina look like she’s completely unaware of how her actions are going to be perceived by the public, and that kind of surprises me honestly. Girlfriend has always seemed pretty calculated in what she does and how she publicly appears, and to do something like this – something that, if another actress of lesser notoriety did it, would appear to be a bang-up ho-stunt – is really out of character. Or at least really out of the realm of what we think Angelina would do, anyway. But this is the chick who made out with her brother and who carried Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around in a vial around her neck, so we can’t forget that too quickly, folks.
