Angelina Jolie, who is still catching heat for her well-slit Atelier Versace Oscars night dress and omnipresent right leg, has finally responded to the all hubbub inspired by the rogue limb. The long and short of it (the response, not the leg) was the fairly typical "I don't Google myself," etc., that we've come to expect from the A-list. "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," she told the Huffington Post.

Angie's leg's Twitter feed (@Angie'sRightLeg, obviously) appears much more willing to participate in the brouhaha, however, with punny winners like, "@theshins Fave band" and "Thanks to my advice, Lindsay Lohan did a fine job hosting Saturday Night Live. I told her to go out there and break a me."
