Angelina Jolie’s right leg is becoming more famous than her.

She flashed it so frequently on Oscars night, people thought it must have had its own ticket and it now has 16,000 followers on Twitter.

So much fuss about a limb. A scrawny and pasty one at that.

Stuck at stiff, rigor mortis-like angles, it looked like a long-dead white rabbit being drawn from a magician’s black bag.

Every woman knows why she did it; she was wearing a dress fashioned from enough velvet to curtain a music hall stage. Without that flash of flesh, she’d have been dowdy dowager duchess, not hot Hollywood royalty - and virtually invisible next to Brad’s black suit. The long, chalky leg provided a demarcation line between Mr and Ms.

That leg was crying out for a bit of fake tan, though. Angelina likes to be pale and interesting but on this occasion, by heck a slather of Fake Bake would have helped hide the knobbles.

That or a pair of something micromesh and American Tan.
