Personifying Body Parts: Angelina Jolie’s Leg’s Twitter Account

Angelina Jolie’s leg provocatively exposed to the eyes of millions at the 2012 Oscars Awards Ceremony has established its own Twitter account. It joins Gogol’s Nose and Addams Family’s Thing as examples of famous disembodied body parts leading a “human” life of their own. It remains to be seen if Jolie’s leg will overcome Jolie’s lips as a fetishized synecdoche of the actress herself. In the meantime, it will stand as a monument to the grossly outdated overindulgence of the Oscars.
