Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Friend Laura Simpson Tells Her Side Of The Story About Jen’s Fall On The Oscars Red Carpet
I needed no additional proof that Jennifer Lawrence is the least affected, “actress-y” actress in Hollywood. But now that I’ve read her best friend Laura Simpson’s firsthand account on MySpace (which is publishing articles now, apparently?) about being Jen’s date to the Oscars on Sunday night, it’s set in stone. Jen and Laura met seven years ago at an event and have been close ever since. If you don’t know what Laura looks like (that’s a picture of her and Jen above!), you definitely saw the back of her head when Jennifer Lawrence tripped on the red carpet and plunged downward. Jen grabbed Laura from behind to try and stop her from falling:
Well, here’s Laura’s point of view on Jennifer’s (second) infamous faceplant:
We finally arrive at the red carpet and as we exit the car, my date eats shit and uses my freshly done Lauren Conrad up do to break her fall. The crowd goes wild. There are flashbulbs and people circling yet no one asks if I need any help because unless you are famous at the Oscars, you are completely invisible. I have never experienced anything like it. The only time anyone talks to you is if you are in the way of his or her photo. Oh and photographers on the carpet yell “YOU IN THE HUGE DRESS, GET OUT OF THE FUCKING SHOT.” It’s incredible. It is no wonder actors are crazy.
That actually sounds kind of … awful … actually. At least she got to smell Brad Pitt’s natural musk and share her Slim Jim with Kerry Washington in the Oscars’ green room. Oh, and BE BEST FRIENDS WITH JENNIFER FUCKING LAWRENCE. Sigh. Maybe the three of us can be a best friend triad? I like pizza and smelling Brad Pitt, too!
