'The Descendants' Writers Explain Why They Mimic Angelina Jolie's Oscars Pose

Nat Faxon and Jim Rash deny they were mocking the 'Tourist' beauty's sultry stance at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, claiming that 'it was a loving tribute and nothing but.'

"The Descendants" writers did not mean to mock Angelina Jolie by striking a similar pose to the actress' when accepting their Best Adapted Screenplay prize at the 84th Annual Academy Awards. When asked about the matter backstage, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash insisted that it was just their way to honor the Hollywood beauty.

Faxon told The Hollywood Reporter, "Angelina's supremely hot. There's no way to do anything but honor her." His co-writer Rash, who is also known as Dean Pelton on "Community", chimed in, "I had just seen her pose and thought it was bold and fun. And you know what? We have exactly the same legs! Really, it was a loving tribute and nothing but."

The Internet started the buzz that Faxon and Rash were mocking Jolie after the two stuck their right leg out in the same fashion that the "Changeling" star did on the red carpet and when she presented Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Screenplay. At one point, Rash was even seen placing his Oscar on his hip and throwing his head back, drawing laughter from the audience.

    Nice try, Sugarpie, but just because some of us thought her pose was ridiculous and laughable, doesn't mean we're jealous--not by any stretch of the imagination. She looked desperate and shallow. Period.

    haters need to go home. Jolie is a beautiful person, inside and out, and you are just jealous. Nanny nanny boo boo.

    She must not have been able to stand-up straight, due to the huge pole up her @ss!

    Most ridiculous and awkward pose ever! Totally agree with MyBareLeg.

    Jim Rash is my new hero! Angelina's pose was not appropriate for presenting an award onstage. Appropriate for red carpet, but not for onstage. She really set herself up for the mocking and jokes. She has no one to blame except herself.

    Oh pleaseee.. They were poking fun and nothing but =)
