Oh Jennifer Lawrence, how we love thee. Let us count the ways. Besides being hot, totally funny and completely awesome at her job – hello, she took home the Leading Actress award at last night’s Oscar Awards for her role in Silver Linings Playbook! – she’s also a girl very much after our own heart. And by that we mean a tad clumsy.
We're not talking a little stumble after a tipple or two which, given her recent success picking up golden statues wherever she goes, would be mandatory, but full on, falling-over-your-feet clumsiness. The latest evidence came at the swanky Oscars ceremony when she fell over on the stairs as she went to pick up her award. Doh.
Jen is, of course, completely forgiven. Of late, she’s had pneumonia and has been in the near constant presence of Bradley Cooper (who she should be dating, FYI) which is enough to make any girl weak at the knees. Plus the overwhelming excitement of awards season and grappling with ginormous floor-length gowns is sure to make you a bit wobbly. It’s a wonder they let her loose with a bow and arrow in The Hunger Games to be honest.
So for all of you who are feeling slightly less enamoured with yourselves this Monday following a night long study of all the Hollywood glitz and glamour, decadent frocks and uber-glowy faces, let’s revel in the one starlet who manages to be everything and more, and still just like one of us. Yep, forget J-Law, it's J-Flaw who's becoming the queen of awards season mishaps and just when we thought we couldn't love her anymore...
1. Jennifer trips at the Oscars
She actually fell up the stairs which reassured us that we are not the only humans in the world capable of totally defying gravity. That dress is HUGE. And it's the perfect way to get Hugh Jackman AND Bradley Cooper to swoop to your rescue. 'What do you mean what happened, look at my dress!' she laughed when asked how she tripped. 'I tried to walk up stairs in this dress, that's what happened. I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs...' God, we love her.
2. Did Jennifer rip her couture gown?
After hugging everyone in the vicinity after winning her SAG award, Jen takes a little stumble after some poor guy unsuspectingly puts his chair down on the train of her couture Dior dress causing her to hitch it and expose it’s lining. And no, it wasn’t silver.
3. Jennifer gets knocked over at the BAFTAs
In their excitement to rush the stage to accept the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, the writers of Silver Linings Playbook knocked Jen off her feet. Woops. Blink and you’ll miss it but we didn't.
4. Jennifer does Cinderella
On her way to a pre-BAFTA dinner hosted by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, the actress managed to lose a shoe, Cinderella style. It's probably those pesky paps blinding her with their flashbulbs to blame but luckily, she was surrounded by helpful people who made sure she didn’t hit the ground and helped her back into her gorgeous heels. And yes, she did go to the ball.
