Angelina Jolie's right leg is back where it belongs, on the Oscar stage.

Jolie made a joke about showing her famed right leg during Oscar rehearsals at the Dolby Theatre in preparation for today's big show.

She was one of many celebrities, including Brad Pitt, Naomi Watts, Matthew McConaughey and Amy Adams, who came to the theatre to practise presenting duties for the 86th Academy Awards.

As Jolie wrapped up her rehearsal for presenting, she announced, laughing: "And then I go like this," and thrust her leg forward.

During the 2012 Oscars, Jolie revealed the leg through the slit in her gown on the Oscar stage, creating one of the lasting impressions of the night.

The limb became an instant sensation on the Internet, earning its own Twitter account (@AngiesRightLeg), countless memes and a tribute song.

Jolie looked stunning, despite wearing minimal makeup for the rehearsals.

Her grey sweatshirt and black leggings were glammed up with a pair of high heels.

Offstage, Jolie explained to student filmmakers that it was important to practise for the event wearing the right formal shoes.

"I used to wear flip-flops," she said. "But when you do this enough, you learn to wear the shoes you are going to present in."

She also noted the success of the Thursday rehearsal.

"I didn't fall in a hole," Jolie said with a laugh.

Her fiance Pitt arrived for his rehearsal separately on Friday night and worked quickly through the proceedings.

Adams, who was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in American Hustle, braved the rain to show up for the rehearsals on Friday.

She immediately whipped off her all-weather boots and replaced them with four-inch spiked silver high heels for her stage walk. Afterwards, Adams noticed her seat was very close to the stage right near a camera.

"I am never going to be off camera," Adams said. "I am really going to have to behave."

McConaughey, who was nominated for best actor for Dallas Buyers Club, attended the rehearsals with his wife Camila Alves on Friday.

He vowed to continue his out-there formal apparel at the Oscars.

When asked what colour tuxedo he was planning to wear today, McConaughey went deadpan.

"It's going to be hot pink," he said.
