Given that Angelina Jolie takes such a vocal stance on so many important social and political issues, it's surprising that she's been ignoring the most important issue of our time: The scandal surrounding her right leg, which memorably stole the show at the 2012 Academy Awards. But finally, the actress and humanitarian has spoken out over the furor, explaining to the Huffington Post that she handled the whole incident the best way she knew how: She ignored it.

"I honestly didn't pay attention to it," Angelina said. "You know what I mean? I don't watch those TV shows and if I go online and see something about myself, I don't click on it." Moreover, she says she doesn't have a lot of people in her network who would be inclined to notice. "The people I surround myself with don't really talk about that kind of stuff," she said. "I heard something, but I didn't pay any attention. It's as simple as being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night, and not really thinking about anything else."

Angelina's right leg could not be reached for comment.
