Jennifer Lawrence Blames Cake For Her Fall At The Oscars

Amelia McDonell-Parry / January 8, 2014

“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.”

Jennifer Lawrence has a typically Jennifer Lawrence explanation (i.e. food-related) for her stumble at last year’s Academy Awards. As I’m sure you recall, when J. Law started up the stairs to accept her award for Best Actress (in “Silver Linings Playbook”), she tripped on the hem of her voluminous Dior gown. Given her very vocal enthusiasm for food, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that dessert was front of mind on the biggest night of her career. [W Magazine]
