Angelina Jolie's bizarre pose at the Oscars made her right leg so famous it got its own Twitter page and featured in a whole host of spoof pictures, showing her leg on other iconic figures.

Freida Pinto must have taken note, whether subliminally or otherwise, as the actress has been showing her right leg with gay abandon during Cannes Film Festival's opening days this week.

It all started on Wednesday at the Moonrise Kingdom premiere, when Freida Pinto wore a Michael Angel dress and stuck her leg out of the pink skirt.

We wondered if it was just an isolated event, but the leg came out again last night.

Freida Pinto certainly has the pins to pull off such a look and it's good to see she has the confidence to wear outfits like this.
