After receiving the 'Best Adapted Screenplay' award for The Descendants, scribe Jim Rash mimicked Jolie's on-stage stance. Joking backstage, Rash said: "I had just seen her pose and thought it was bold and fun. And you know what? We have exactly the same legs! Really, it was a loving tribute and nothing but."

Various messages on the spoof include: "Check out this leg over here!" "Still here. Great view, but thank god for the slit in this dress", and "You have to admit I'm one hell of a leg".
