Actress has awkward moment in Dior dress, saves face graciously
Looking like a true vision of beauty in a gorgeous and elaborate Dior dress, Jennifer Lawrence was so overwhelmed when she heard her name called out as winner in the Best Actress category at the Oscars 2013 that she fell on her way to the stage.Video of that incident and her amazing speech afterwards is above. Below is a better quality video of the fall, but the sound cuts off halfway in the acceptance speech, just so you know.
A less spontaneous actress would have been mortified by falling at the biggest even in the film industry, especially as she went up to the stage to collect her award.
But not Jennifer. She laughs off the trip and fall, and even tells the audience that they’re sweet for standing up just because she fell. She’s awesome like that.
Jennifer won for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook,” beating early favorite Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”).
