- so apparently this leg move (first performed by Angelina Jolie) has taken on a very public life of it's own. It all began when screenwriter Jim Rush (of The Descendants) did the same move after winning his Oscar. This was then filmed and went Viral, and now they are linked forever, because of the Leg.
Watch a really funny interview with Rush, where he explains how he "owned" the moment with his protruding leg : http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/gossip/2012/02/angelina-jolie-leg-jolieing-angies-leg-oscars-pose.html
Here is a picture of the legs, see the resemblance?
