"E! Fashion Police" host Joan Rivers is celebrating her 80th birthday Saturday, kicking off a "takeover" of episodes on the celeb cable network, but did she get everything she wanted this year?

Apparently not. The snarky fashion critic told E! she was pretty bummed out that Angelina Jolie is now off limits from her wrath due to her recent preventive double mastectomy.

"It affected me so much I took three jokes out about her in my act. Do you understand how upsetting that is?" she said before taking two extra expletive stabs at the actress.

However, the crass Brooklyn-born comedian was sure to also commend the Oscar-winner for her actions, adding, "I think what she did is absolutely, incredibly brave and wonderful for women and women's self-image ... She is someone every woman can look up to, saying, 'If she can do it, I can do it.'"

What do you think of Joan's comments? Do you think they were all in good fun? Too soon? Comment here.
