Mo'Nique Didn't Shave Her Legs for the Oscars

Mo'Nique may have spent hours getting red carpet ready for the Oscars yesterday, but that didn't include shaving her legs.

Mo'Nique's legs became the subject of conversation after she flashed photogs at the Golden Globes last month and we've been keeping track of her hairy situation since.

After flashing her hairy legs last month Mo'Nique said she never shaves because it's painful and her husband Sidney prefers her hairy.

When asked if she stands by that statement last night, the Best Supporting Actress winner told Us Weekly, "I stand by that, mama! And my husband stands by it!"

"Hey baby, they talk about Jesus! What makes me think they won't talk about me?" she told Us. "I think that people are entitled to their opinion. Baby, I love the hair on my legs -- and so does my man!"

Well at least she owns it! Mo'Nique gave perhaps one of the most touching speeches of the night when she walked up on that stage to accept her Best Supporting Actress award.

She said, "I want to thank Miss Hattie McDaniel for enduring all that she had to so that I would not have to. Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey because you touched it, the whole world saw it...To my amazing husband Sidney, thank you for showing me that sometimes you have to forego doing what's popular in order to do what's right. And baby, you were so right. God bless us all."
