Oscars 2013: Did Jennifer Lawrence Fall Down on Purpose?
No awards show is complete without a buzzworthy moment from Jennifer Lawrence, and last night’s Oscars had a big one when Jennifer Lawrence tripped up the stairs in her Dior Haute Couture gown, when going to accept her Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook.
Hugh Jackman ran to assist her — such a gentleman! — telling People afterward, "I had to help her, poor thing! I didn't know if she could get up.”
But she did get up, then joked about her fall. Backstage, after the show, she was asked if the fall was on purpose. Her reply? "Absolutely." She told another reporter, "What do you mean ‘what happened?’ Look at my dress. I tried to walk up stairs in this dress. ... I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs." She also added, "What went through my mind? A bad word that I can't say, but it starts with 'F.'"
Maybe it’s because she didn’t have time to eat before the ceremony and it threw her off her game? Or maybe it was as simple as just having too much fabric to walk over. Back at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Jennifer looked like she has a wardrobe malfunction that just turned out to be part of the lining of her dress showing. And at the Golden Globe Awards, she had some mini controversy when some people felt she was dissing Meryl Streep. Drama just follows JLaw around!
