“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]
I don’t know about you, but 2013 was The Year of My Flourishing Girl Crushes.
First, I fell even more in love with Jennifer Lawrence, whose quirky, witty sense of humor and righteous self-confidence, on top of her kickass performance in “Catching Fire,” left me almost certain she is my spirit animal and sister from another mister.

This Flare magazine cover is actually a couple years old, but a GIF showing the unretouched photo of Jennifer Lawrence getting shrunk down into the final cover image is currently making the rounds. Stuff like this depresses me so much. The section of her torso they shaved down in Photoshop? Those are ribs. They’re kind of important. Lawrence has jokingly expressed her love of Photoshop in the past, but in recent interviews she’s been pretty vocal about the need for more realistic bodies on screen. While discussing the decision to portray Katniss as physically strong instead of starving, Lawrence told the BBC, “I just kept saying, ‘We have the ability to control this image that young girls are going to be seeing. Girls see enough of this body that we can’t imitate, that we’ll never be able to obtain, these unrealistic expectations, and this is gonna be their hero, and we have control over that.’” Fashion magazines, it’s time to take note.
