Only Jennifer Lawrence could fall with such grace and style, but unfortunately we live in a world of gifs that makes falling not so graceful and stylish when it’s played over and over and over.
Actress Jennifer Lawrence falls as she walks up the steps to accept the award for best actress for her role "Silver Linings Playbook" at the 85th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California February 24, 2013.
Everyone was on the edge of their seats when the Best Actress was about to be called for the 2013 Oscars.
Many even leapt off their couches when it was announced that the “Silver Linings Playbook” star had won the Oscar for her role in the David O. Russell film.
Pure shock raced across the first time winner’s face. She jumped to her feet, covering her mouth and made sure to hug her mother.
She glided from her front row seat to the stairs in her virgin pink Dior gown, but somewhere on the stars the “Silver Linings” star fell from grace.
She slipped and paused for a moment, probably laughing at what had just happened during the most monumental moment of the 22-year-old’s life to date.
Before she was ready to compose herself, it seemed like “Les Miserables” star Hugh Jackman dashed over to be the perfect gentleman and help Lawrence to her feet where she belongs.
J Law mustered up her strength and continued to sashay up the stage to accept her award from last year’s Best Actor Jean Dujardin.
She chucked once reaching the mic in typically down-to-earth Lawrence fashion.
"You guys are just standing up because I fell and that's really embarrassing..." she honestly quipped.
She promptly recovered thanking her family and her team. When she walked off the stage sheer bliss was plastered over the 22-year-old’s face.
Lawrence is Hollywood’s “it” girl and there’s a perfectly good reason for it: she wants to know where the food is, she breaks “manicams,” occasionally drinks too much wine during acceptance speeches and trips when accepted the biggest honor in her profession. Plus she’s a phenomenal actress who produces great work.
Let’s all be honest here, you know the poor girl’s fall only makes you love her more. Congratulations J Law, you beat Meryl.
