"I honestly didn't pay attention to it. 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. And the people I surround myself with don't really talk about this kind of stuff. 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."

• She's putting her foot down! After her right leg managed to outshine Hollywood's starriest at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie, 36, tells The Huffington Post that she isn't hopping on the Angie-bowing bandwagon – or following updates from @AngiesRightLeg on Twitter.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Jackie O Inspired My Oscar Look & Apple Helped, Too!

Most celebrities try on multiple dresses before finding the one, perfect, red carpet-worthy gown. Not Gwyneth Paltrow. For her, it took just one photo and one fitting.

"I tried on one dress. That was the dress and I thought, 'it's a little different but it's sort of a throwback,' " Paltrow said during a taping of The Chew on Thursday. "I saw a pic of Jackie O in a white dress with a cape and it's been a while since anyone's worn a cape, frankly, except for Superman."

Gwyneth Paltrow on WhoSay

A picture-perfect moment, right?

Well, looks like the joke is on Gwyneth, who posted a photo of her meeting comedians Steve Martin and Martin Short at the Vanity Fair party following last Sunday's Academy Awards.

"Dude. Seriously. I love my life," the actress, sporting her glamorous Tom Ford dress, wrote along with the photo, which she published on her WhoSay account that night.

Martin, too, shared similar pictorial evidence of his meeting with Paltrow, posting a slightly different version of the shot on his official Twitter page (see photo below) the same night.

Angelina Jolie Spends the Day with Brad Pitt's Mom – and Her Twins

A day after dazzling in velvet Versace at the Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie was back to normal – and showing a lot less leg – running errands in L.A. Monday.

After taking a coffee break with partner Brad Pitt's mom, Jane, the actress, dressed down in black, was spotted out and about with 3-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.

And although she was all smiles, Jolie, 36, wasn't striking any poses for the paparazzi like she did when she hit the Oscars stage to present the award for Best Adapted Screenplay Sunday night.

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart's PDA-filled Pre-Oscar Party

Originally posted 02/28/2012 06:00AM

Longtime lovebirds Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made a rare semi-public appearance together during the Oscar weekend in Los Angeles.

The couple attended WME's pre-Oscar bash at agent Ari Emanuel's house and were "quite affectionate" in front of other revelers, a source says. Adds the source: "[They] seemed very comfortable and sweet with each other." The duo mingled with guests such as the Kardashians, Miley Cyrus and beau Liam Hemsworth.

The following night, the two stepped out for dinner at Il Covo, where they were joined by four friends, including actress Mia Wasikowska for their meal on the restaurant's patio. The couple were the last to arrive at the party, and they each sipped a beer. Later, Stewart ordered a tequila cocktail. Unlike at the WME party, at dinner the couple kept their PDA to a minimum.

Bradley Cooper & Zoe Saldana Party in L.A. – with His Mom!

Originally posted 02/28/2012 05:55AM

They made a PDA-filled splash at Sundance, and new couple Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana stepped out once again at L.A's SoHo House for a Grey Goose-hosted party the night before the Academy Awards. But this time around, they seemed to be playing things more coy – possibly because the reigning Sexiest Man Alive had brought his mom, Gloria, out!

Cooper had his arm around his mother (who's already met Zoe), and led the way through the Weinstein Company bash as Zoe, Casey Affleck and a pal followed them through the crowd. Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson and new beau Nate Naylor walked hand-in-hand through the party together. The pair stopped to chat with Russell Simmons before heading out. – Julie Jordan
