Aside from Ellen DeGeneres’s epic selfie with Hollywood’s brightest stars, another incident was also trending. It is Jennifer Lawrence’s fall on the Oscars 2014 red carpet as she made her way inside the Dolby Theatre. What makes this newsworthy is that this is the second time that the actress tripped in the Oscars. It can be recalled that Jennifer Lawrence tripped in Oscars 2013, when she was about to receive her Best Actress award for the movie “Silver Linings Playbook.” The second time around, Lawrence has not even made it inside Dolby Theatre, even on the red carpet, when the tripping incident happened.
The “American Hustle” star later explained that she really did trip, this time around, on an orange cone.
“I was waving to the fans and I tripped over a cone!” said Lawrence to Entertainment Weekly.
Meanwhile, in a news report published by The Huffington Post Canada, some netizens do not believe her tripping was an accident. They insisted that Lawrence did that on purpose to attract attention.
However, the actress feared harboring reactions like this and admitted that she is worried about people thinking that she did that on purpose or as a gimmick.
Lawrence told Access Hollywood before going inside the Dolby Theatre, “I’m afraid that like – I got so scared and I hope nobody took a picture, because I’m afraid it’s going start looking like a gimmick.” She also explained how it all happened so fast, insisting that she ran over a cone.
According to the Daily Mail, when Lawrence fell during the Oscars 2013 before going up the stairs to accept her Best Actress award, she immediately recovered, went back on her feet and thanked everyone.
“Thank you so much. This is nuts. You guys are only standing up because I fell and you feel bad. That was embarrassing,” said Lawrence in the Daily Mail report.
The Daily Mail also said that Lawrence is a magnet of “falling.” Aside from tripping and falling at the Oscars for the second time, she reportedly dropped one of her diamond bracelets during an interview with Ryan Seacrest at the Golden Globes in January 2014. Furthermore, while promoting “Silver Linings Playbook” in February 2013 in London, Lawrence also stumbled.
Ellen DeGeneres, being her usual funny self, opened the program by joking about Lawrence.
“If you win tonight, I think we should bring you the Oscar trophy,” joked DeGeneres according to The New Zealand Herald.
