Who could forget when Jennifer tripped up at the stairs on her way to accepting her Oscar in 2013? Almost a year later, the star explains exactly what happened in a new interview.
Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook at the 2013 Academy Awards — and when she went to receive her Oscar, she fell up the steps! We love the 23-year-old actress so much that it didn’t even matter — we just wanted to give her a big hug and congratulate her! However, we did always wonder exactly what happened. Well, JLaw told W magazine exactly why!
Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar Fall — Reason Behind Her Trip:
Was it nerves? Was it the stunning Dior Haute Couture gown? Well, she told the mag exactly what it was … and we cannot stop laughing! “I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell,” she told the mag. Lawrence is so witty and down to earth we can’t handle it — and we love her cover of the magazine’s annual ‘Movie’ issue!
