While the Oscars are usually a bore, we can’t deny that Jennifer Lawrence brightened up the whole ordeal by falling up the stairs on her way to claiming her Best Actress trophy last year.
Was it the dress? Was it the nerves? We didn’t care at the time because, goddamn it, Jennifer Lawrence was (and still is) our spirit animal. And besides, that was one graceful as fuck fall. So are we still curious about what was going through her head at the time? Not really because JLaw is perfect in our eyes and how could she possibly top that?
By revealing the real reason why she fell, apparently.
According to her cover interview with W Magazine, the star messed up her walk to history because she was thinking about food.
“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk,” she told the magazine. “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.”
Seriously, can we be best friends? I’ll buy you McDonald’s whenever you want, JLaw.
