Diablo CodyOscar-nominated screenwriter Diablo Cody is having second thoughts about donning "million dollar shoes" to the Oscars, insisting she had no idea the Stuart Weitzman footwear deal would bring her so much attention.

News broke Friday that the Juno writer had been chosen to wear the one-of-a-kind Kwiat diamond shoes, but, in a posting on her page, Cody says she had no idea the Weitzman creations would become the talk of Hollywood fashion circles.

Recalling the fitting, Cody writes, "They (shoes) were sparkly. Kind of retro. With hefty brooches to be affixed atop each narrow toebox. I was pleased, but it wasn't, like, an event."

The screenwriter insists she had no idea the heels were the fabled 'million dollar shoes' that Weitzman crafts for a celebrity Oscar attendee every year.

She adds, "I must have somehow missed the part where my shoes cost a MILLION F--KING DOLLARS and my 'choice' of footwear would be publicized nationwide. I honestly thought they were just sparkly shoes. I'm flattered that they picked me (surprise!) to wear the Pimp Shooz... I'm actually really p--sed about this... They're using me to publicize their stupid shoes and NOBODY ASKED ME. I would never consent to a lame publicity stunt at a time when I already want to hide."

In a statement to WENN, Weitzman, who also crafted a ballerinastyle flat for Cody to change into after walking the red carpet in high heels, says, "Diablo Cody is a wonderful, talented writer, whose movie I enjoyed watching. I will certainly be rooting for her on Sunday evening. We wish her the best."

After the Oscars, the shoes are returned to Weitzman for display purposes. Mulholland Drive actress Laura Harring was the first celebrity to wear the million dollar shoes at the 2002 Oscars.
