Actress Angelina Jolie's split-leg dress demands attention

Angelina Jolie‘s right leg has almost 12,000 followers on Twitter after its appearance at last night’s Oscars.

The actress chose a rather plain black Versace gown for the occasion, but it was sexed up by a slit that reached to the top of her thigh.

And Ange, 36, showed off her years of Hollywood experience by ensuring her long, super-slender leg peeped out from her frock for the red carpet photos.

Twitter account @AngiesRightLeg was quickly set up and is already followed by 11,937 users.

‘Still here. Great view, but thank god for the slit in this dress,’ ‘the limb’ Tweeted last night.

This morning it added: ‘Great meeting most of you for the first time last night at the Oscars!!’
