After being on the stage, Lawrence was offered a standing ovation. “You’re only standing up because I fell on the stairs,” she told the audience. “I feel so embarrassed.”: exclaimed the actress.
Reporters asked her backstage if she had fallen purposefully. The actress jokingly replied, “Absolutely.”
“What do you mean, what happened?”
she added “Look at my dress. I tried to walk up the stairs in this dress. They wax the stairs.” Earlier that evening on the red carpet, she had told reporters that her stylist took six inches off the mermaid-style train of her Dior gown because it was so long.
In fact, imagine the massive length of her gorgeous dress which increases the chances of her fall for sure. Mix walking in a dress with the nerves of going up on the Dolby Theatre stage, and there you have it, an award-winning fall.
