Angelina explains her most infamous dress
Angelina Jolie's 2012 Oscars dress is one of the sexiest to ever grace the red carpet, spawning the #AngiesRightLeg hashtag at the time due to its ultra-high slit.
The 44-year-old actress spoke to Extra about the black Atelier Versace gown at the Monday premiere of her new film Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, where she revealed there was another look in the running to make its debut that night.
"I had a more complicated dress and I wore the more comfortable dress," Jolie admitted, "which was that one, and I think I was just so comfortable that … I think when you feel comfortable, when you feel yourself - which is very much the theme of the film, and we know this in life - you embrace it. And sometimes, maybe it appears to be a thing, I don't know."
The mother-of-six attended the premiere with all but her oldest son, Maddox, whom she recently dropped off for college in South Korea.
"He's good," she reported. "But he's flying to meet me in Japan. So I am two days from my hug … I know he is solid, he's fine, but I need it."
Earlier this month, Jolie told Hello! magazine that she's "rediscovering" herself as a mother of teenagers. "As they grow up, I find my children are strong individuals but still open-minded," Jolie said. "I try to lead by example and be kind and gracious, as my mother was - and loving and tolerant."
She went on to say that seeing her kids hit their teenage years has forced her to reflect on her own formative years.
"When your children are little you feel more 'mommy'. When they are teenagers you start to remember yourself as a teenager," she told the publication. "You see them going to punk clubs and you wonder why you can't go. I'm in this fun moment where I'm rediscovering myself."
