Resurfaced pictures of Angelina Jolie kissing her brother have people baffled

She planted one on her brother in 2000 at the Oscars

People have been left baffled as they are just realising that Angelina Jolie once kissed her brother.

Despite the impact of House of the Dragon in getting audiences to cheer on inter-sibling intimacy, fans are still baffled by a re-emerged image of Jolie and her brother.

The infamous incident saw the movie star laying one on her brother, James Haven, in 2000 at the Oscars.

Jolie, who was 24-years-old at the time, had picked up an Oscar for her performance in Girl Interrupted.

In her acceptance speech, she paid tribute to her brother, who had accompanied her to the ceremony.

A flustered Jolie said: "I’m in shock, and I’m so in love with my brother right now.

"He just held me and said he loved me, and I know he’s so happy for me. And, um, thank you for that."

People had a lot of questions about the incident, but both Jolie and Haven have clarified the incident, with Jolie even calling the response to it 'pathetic'.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "My parents really loved that moment, and that’s what will always matter."

In 2007, Haven told the Daily Mail: "I did not give Angie a French kiss. It was something simple and lovely.

"She was about to go off to Mexico to finish filming Original Sin with Antonio Banderas. I congratulated her on the Oscar win and gave her a quick kiss on the lips.

"It was snapped and became a big thing."

Now, as it happens these days, the resurfaced photo has got Redditors questioning what a weird time the 2000s really was, finding it hard to make sense of the infamous sibling moment.

"Can somebody explain what’s going on with Angelina Jolie smooching her brother like that?"

"No, I don't think anyone really can explain," one confused user wrote.

Another surmised: "She did it for shock value. Totally performative," while another agreed chiming in: "Performative, like the weird leg-angle thing she did at that awards show."

It's not the only time that Jolie has raised eyebrows on the red carpet. She also wore a vial of her husband Billy Bob Thornton's blood round her neck.

Speaking of the incident in 2014, Thornton said: "She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter's baby hair in one."
