Jennifer Lawrence had a memorable night at the Oscars.
The 22-year-old walked away with the Best Actress award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. The humble starlet also unintentionally was the subject of one of the most-talked-about moments from the night. She tripped and fell while walking to stage to accept the award.
“You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell,” she said when she accepted her award. When she reached the press room, she explained what happened. She joked that she did it on purpose.
"Was that on purpose? Absolutely! ... What do you mean what happened? Look at my dress!” she said, according to MTV News. “I tried to walk upstairs in this dress, that's what happened! I stepped on the fabric, and I think they wax the stairs."
She said there was only one thing going through her head when it happened. She was thinking "A bad word that I can't say. It starts with 'F.'"
