T here were some testy moments Sunday behind the scenes of the Academy Awards.
Though usually known for a healthy sense of humor, Angelina Jolie reportedly was irked after Jim Rash mocked her by standing right next to Jolie and mimicking her pronounced, revealed leg stance and head toss when he hit the stage to share the best adapted screenplay Oscar for “The Descendants.” “Who is that guy?” a backstage source quotes her as snapping when she exited after presenting the original screenplay award that followed. She was quickly told Rash is a veteran comic and co-star of the NBC sitcom “Community.” “She was still pretty steamed but seemed to calm down quickly,” said the source.
