Does Penélope Cruz have a leg up on Angelina Jolie?

The Spanish actress, 38, showed some serious skin on Thursday when she stepped out at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the movie Twice Born.

Clad in a long, light pink gown with a huge slit up the right side, Cruz flaunted one of her lengthy legs – and struck a pose similar to Jolie’s infamous stance at the 2012 Oscars.

When Jolie strutted her stuff in that now-unforgettable black Atelier Versace gown, she downplayed the buzz she drew – including a Twitter handle dedicated to the outfit choice, named @AngiesRightLeg.

“I heard something, but I didn’t pay any attention,” she said. “It’s as simple as being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night and not really thinking about anything else.”
