Melbourne: Angelina Jolie is reportedly struggling to get over the humiliation caused by her dress that gave her a disastrous look at the Oscars.
According to a source, the ‘Salt’ star is said to be “horrified” that her stylist chose a dress that “swallowed her up” and forced her stick out her right leg so she didn’t look like she was wearing a “bin bag.”
Jolie attracted worldwide ridicule after her appearance at the 84th Academy Awards in February. Her right leg took on a life of its own and it didn’t take long for spoof images to sweep the internet. The actress is reportedly considering sacking her stylist Jen Rade for choosing the disastrous Versace gown.
“Angelina is horrified at the reaction her Oscars dress received. She pays her stylist Jen a lot of money to pick things that will make her look drop-dead gorgeous, but she felt the dress swallowed her up and she had to stick her leg, or it looked like she was wearing a bin bag,” a leading daily has quoted a source as saying.
“Now she’s being laughed at when she’s worked so hard on her look. She feels like a joke and is worried her reputation may have taken a hit,” the source said.
Jolie was reportedly so upset about the instant mocking that she avoided the Oscars after-parties.
“Ange briefly went to George Clooney’s post Academy Awards dinner but left early on as she was still upset. She bitterly regrets wearing the dress and is just hoping the next time she’s on the red carpet, she makes headlines for the right reasons,” the source added.
The “Jolie Leg” meme became an internet sensation. The actress is also terrified that she has lost her trademark cool, the British edition of a magazine has revealed.
“Angelina can’t believe that she is now the butt of everyone’s jokes - and on such a global scale,” an insider said.
“She feels completely humiliated. She simply can’t believe that her appearance backfired so spectacularly. Angelina never looks uncool – ever,” the source added.
