  • The actress took a tumble for the second time at the Oscars - but she swears it was not staged

    Jennifer Lawrence still baffles us with her ability to do everything wrong – yet somehow get it all so right.

    The loveably quirky star caused the entire audience to gasp when she fell on her way up to accept her Best Actress Oscar last year.

    Since then she’s done countless things to entertain and surprise us – so we figured she’d pull something out of the bag for this year’s Academy Awards.

    We did not, however, think she’d take a second stumble.

    The Best Supporting Actress nominee tripped on the red carpet on her way into the ceremony. Of course, she immediately jumped up and laughed it off – in true J.Law form. But she was clearly embarrassed about her clumsy repeat – and we just wanted to give her a big cuddle.

    After the slip-up, she explained the incident to Access Hollywood. ‘I don’t know how it happened so fast. I wasn’t even at the press yet,’ she said. ‘But there was a cone outside my car and yeah, I ran over the cone.’

    Jennifer said her main concern is that people will think it was staged.

    ‘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 said.

    In our minds, it seemed pretty obvious that her tumble was an accident. Plus, she’s such a down-to-earth, relaxed chick (not to mention our fantasy BFF), it would be crazy to think she’d plan such a forced publicity stunt.

    But apparently the idea did cross Jared Leto’s mind.

    ‘You know, I’m starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act,’ the Best Supporting Actor winner told Access Hollywood after the show.

    Okay, so he may have been joking. But we still think Jared needs to stick to what he knows (acting, singing and styling those gorgeous ombre waves) and leave our girl J.Law alone.
