The 38-year-old was not in full regalia for this event. She wasn't wearing a gown like she did two years ago during the Oscars when she struck a peculiar leg pose that went viral. Brad Pitt's partner was just there to be sure she to be ready for Sunday.

According to the AP via ABC New on Feb. 28, the actress, director, and activist was dressed for the job, decked out in casual attire.

During the rehearsal, college students who will serve as statue carriers on Oscars Sunday met the superstar as they all worked on their separate roles for the Academy Awards this year. Jolie, who introduced herself as Angie, talked to these scholars about at least one trick of the trade: Wearing the right shoes during an awards ceremony.

As proof that she knew what she was doing, Angelina Jolie exclaimed, "I didn't fall!"to the college students. She was wearing open toe pumps in silver as she tried out her lines at the Dolby.

The winner of last year's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award was complimented by one of the students who, according to E! Online, told her, "You were great out there."

During the rehearsal, Angelina Jolie asked for the teleprompter operator to make the text larger, stating she once wore glasses. She also hugged one of the stand ins who was there to do his job, in this case to accept the fake award from Angie. Talk about a big moment for this hard worker.

The Academy Awards take place on March 2 on ABC.
