Which Oscar-nominated actress let a string of expletives fly at an awards after-party? A man accidentally stepped on her train and the usually gracious star turned into a ranting she-devil. We've narrowed down possible culprits. Time to investigate!
What was Penelope Cruz saying in that speedy Spanish addendum to her Oscar acceptance speech? Aggressive vulgarity, perhaps? And is it possible she'd sound just as endearingly sexy if she cursed out a guy in her native tongue? We think so.
Meryl Streep recently played an icy editrix in "The Devil Wears Prada," a charming hippie in "Mamma Mia," and then she put the fear of God in us as a strict old nun in "Doubt." This is clearly one leading lady who could turn on you on a dime.
"America's Sweetheart" Anne Hathaway didn't win the Best Actress award this year. Did she say "Aww shucks!" or "Oh $#@&!" to some unsuspecting gown-clomping chump? She played it rough in "Rachel Getting Married", so it could really go either way.
Is ever-enchanting actress Amy Adams even capable of cussing? Well, America's "other" Sweetheart used to be a hostess at Hooters and once starred in "Cruel Intentions 2," so maybe there's a bad girl skeleton in this sweetiepie's closet after all.
If Taraji P. Henson was bad-a$$ enough to sing "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp" onstage with Three 6 Mafia at the 2006 Oscars, we think she might just have it in her to tell someone to step off with some very colorful language.
Angelina Jolie has always intrigued us with her "edgier", slightly "violent-seeming" side, but would she go batso on someone at a party? She's definitely capable, but if it were Angie, we think she would have full-on punched the person in the face.
Melissa Leo definitely knows how to channel the "tough broad who hasn't seen a better day in a while" character. So if someone stepped on her dress, let alone touched her feathery bronzed 'do, we could definitely see her ripping the dude a new one.
Over the years, Marisa Tomei has never shied away from tough-talking wise gals. But would the down-to-earth actress serve up a verbal Ram Jam? We bet she's got a pretty good vocab after spending all that time with Mickey Rourke this past year.
Viola Davis has the sweetest-sounding name, but if she could hold her own against Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman, we have little doubt she's capable of taking down a dude for stepping on her golden gown. Get him, girl!
Kate Winslet kept us on edge while portraying a stern Nazi guard in "The Reader," but could the charming Best Actress have told someone off on her big night? Not likely. We're going to give the winning woman a pass on this one. The mystery remains.
