"I just saw her pose and I thought, you know what, we have exactly the same legs," Jim quipped backstage as he argued with his colleagues over whether or not he dissed Brad Pitt's sexy lady. "And I wanted to show everyone what it meant. It was a loving tribute."

"It was more like, oh, she's standing, great," Jim added, "I'm going to stand like that, too."

Angie, who admitted on the red carpet that the dress made her "feel sexy," was definitely flaunting her figure, and Nat says, more power to her!

"She's supremely hot," he said. "Jim did the leg first and he didn't tell us — so I had to like quickly adapt."Do you think Jim's pose was a funny tribute or a harsh joke?
