Jennifer Lawrence fell at the Oscars because she was thinking about cake?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence has been laying low lately. Have you noticed? She knows that awards season is nearly upon us, so she’ll be everywhere. Not only does she need to rest up and prepare for the madness, JLaw is also hyper aware that you may soon grow sick of seeing her adorable mug. With that said, Jennifer spent Christmas at a children’s hospital in her native Kentucky (I’ve included those photos at the bottom of this post). She then travelled to London to spend NYE with Nicholas Hoult. She needs the downtime for sure.

So we’ll have to do with tiny JLaw tidbits until the awards show tour begins. Yesterday Kaiser covered the super-mega W magazine movie issue with all of the different covers including Jennifer. Honestly I wasn’t impressed with any of the covers. The harsh lighting turned me off quite a bit, and even JLaw looked washed out as a result. Jennifer did talk a little bit about her Oscars fall heard round the world. Jennifer was wearing a massive Dior confection. Dior should have known better than to put someone as klutzy as JLaw in this dress. Jennifer says she was thinking about cake and that’s why she fell. Weird:

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head?’ And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

[From W magazine]

You know I adore this girl, but even I’m giving the side eye to this explanation. Maybe she’s telling the truth. It’s hard to put ourselves in the mindset of walking up to the stage in front of the entire Academy. I sort of imagine it as tunnel vision, but that’s probably not even an accurate description. We get it though, JLaw: You love food.

Here’s those pictures of Jennifer at Kosair’s Children’s Hospital. She spent Christmas bringing Katniss to young children. How cool.

    I’m rather neutral regarding her, but this cutesy shtick is getting a bit old.

  2. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    If I was her, I’d be so glad when that boring ceremony was over, so I could EAT. I’d be thinking about cake too.

    But yeah–hopefully she’ll get some time off, because she is getting a little annoying–to the gossip readers who read pretty much everything on her.

    I don’t know–I don’t find her needy, and that’s what I hated about Anne. She wanted that Oscar so badly she could taste it, and she’d cut as many b*tches as possible to get it.

    • QQ says:

      ITA Virgilia, I still love her (and that Hair, sickening!) but she needs new talking points (which is where living life away from the spotlight a little might help her!) also agreed on Hathaway, this thirsty Annie Oh Golly geez Overeager extra ambitious cutesy cloying theater kid thing is the same reason why lea Michele and Taylor Swift bug hard

    • RJ says:

      I agree, it can be annoying. But I don’t find her needy on the level of Anne Hathaway at all (“You like me! You really really like me!”). She’s very young, a good actress, and probably finds all of the adulation, accolades, and fandom overwhelming. Especially the type of psycho teen fandom the Hunger Games monster machine franchise brings.

      I think she wants us regular folk to know she hasn’t let it go to her head too much but let’s face it, her life will never be normal again.
      When I contrast her behavior with KStew-and the entire Twilight cast-I think she’s handling it as best as she can.

      • LadyMTL says:

        ITA, I’m not getting the whole desperation vibe from JLaw that I got from Anne Hathaway. I used to love AH but now I can’t help but eyeroll when I see / hear her.

        That said, I do think that JLaw should find something new to talk about, because after awhile things get stale and no-one wants to keep reading or hearing about the same old topics. I do think she’s miles and miiiiles ahead of most other young actresses out there, though.

    • Jen says:

      Yeah, I’m really sure if you were 21 years old and won an Oscar you’d be thinking about f’n cake. Sure.

  3. jinni says:

    This is just getting really ridiculous now.

  4. Melissa says:

    Ugh she is becoming so irritating.

  5. Trixie says:

    She kind of annoys me now, she seems a bit fake. She’s too over the top with her cutesy, “I’m a girl who loves fart jokes”, act. And I don’t think she’s the amazing actress that everyone claims she is. Also, her red carpet smile creeps me out, because it’s a smile in the mouth, but the eyes are completely dead. It’s creeps.

  6. Lindy79 says:

    I don’t get it…it’s always been clear that she stepped on the material and then when stepping up, there was nowhere for the dress to go, so she fell.

    Why this cakewalk thing…?

    • Liv says:

      Didn’t you get her point? (Honest question)

      She said she forgot that her stylist told her to kick the dress and then walk, not just walk. That’s why she fell, because she forgot to kick her dress away first.

      • Lindy79 says:

        No I did, I just don’t get why she is talking about this nearly a year after the fact.
        It does smack a little of the whole “I’m so normal and I love food” vibe she is rocking.

        The kicking also wouldn’t have helped in going up stairs in that dress with the amount of material there, unless they were fan kicks in which case I’m sorry she forgot to do that.

      • Liv says:

        Ah, sorry.

        I guess they are asking her about it again because she will probably get another Oscar nomination. And I don’t think the cake thing is about “I love food”. But I love her so that’s maybe why I don’t find her exhausting and annoying ;-)

  7. ANDREA1 says:

    I have never commented on any Jennifer Lawrence post but today I will make an exception.. This gal has got a backlash coming her way pretty soon I think she needs to tone it down that’s all. I know I will be attacked for saying this but I never got the hype about her. Am pretty neutral about her but then…..

  8. I can’t stand her. I think she is insanely overrated as an actress, and I don’t find her to be in any way cute. Her behavior is frequently crass and rude, but it is (somehow) billed as cute and refreshing. She is her generation’s Julia Roberts.

    • RJ says:

      Seriously? Have you seen Winter’s Bone? She was excellent in it. I don’t think she’s overrated, but I do think Silver Linings Playbook was a completely overrated movie. It was good, but hardly great.
      I hate it when the Academy gives an Oscar for an average performance when everyone knows it was actually for a great performance in a previous role that they overlooked (e.g. Russell Crowe for Gladiator when it should have been for The Insider, etc)

      • V4Real says:

        Well then if that’s how The Academy is doing it I hope RDJ gets his oscar soon. He definetely should have won for Chaplin over Al Pacino’s A Scent of A Woman.

        Kim Bassinger won a best supporting actress oscar for her role in L.A. Confidential. She was ok but her performance was not Oscar worthy and neither was JLaw’s performance in Silver Linning

    • Liv says:

      You know, I totally understand if you don’t like her and hate her attitude or looks or whatever, but you can’t deny that she’s a good actress. She’s definitely one of the best actresses of her generation.

      • bns says:

        Opinions on someone’s acting talent are subjective. Just because you think she’s good, doesn’t mean that I have to agree.

      • Liv says:

        I disagree. Opinions on looks or behavior are subjective, but it’s a fact if someone has acting talent or not. Sure, there are actresses whose talent is debatable, but when it comes to Jennifer Lawrence (or Meryl Streep or Cate Blanchett) you just can’t say that she has not much talent, even if you don’t like her. If you say so I must assume that you are clueless about films or acting.

      • bns says:

        ^ LOL

        This makes absolutely no sense, but okay.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        @Liv
        That’s ridiculous. Talent is the ability to do something well. Whether or not someone does something like racing may not be subjective, because if they do it well, they win the race. But whether or not someone performs a form of art well is entirely subjective. There’s no way to “prove” it. You may think she acts well, and I can see the same performance and think she was awful. That’s how art is.

      • Liv says:

        @bns Whatever.

        @GoodNamesAllTaken I just don’t think so. I think that there are actors who are that good that you can’t deny their talent. And there are for sure actors and actresses I don’t like who are nonetheless really talented or good or however you want to call it. And how do you ever want to prove talent? You can’t, no matter if it’s about a teacher or an actor or a lawyer. I get your argument that we all valuate people different – but my point is that there are people who are that good that there’s no controversy possible. I’m not talking about Kristen Stewart, Olivia Wilde or Zoe Saldana. I’m talking about Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway or Christian Bale. Like many others Anne is getting on my nerves lately, but she’s a good actress.

      • bns says:

        @Liv

        The key word here is “I think”. An opinion is not a fact.

        It sounds more like you’re trying to force your opinion about your favorite actors on other people. Not everyone is going to like Jennifer Lawrence’s performances; that doesn’t mean that they don’t know anything about film, it just means that that’s their opinion and they’re absolutely entitled to that, just like you’re entitled to your own opinion about her.

      • Liv says:

        What? I’m not forcing my opinion on others, quite the opposite! I said I understand when people don’t like her or hate her looks or attitude or whatever, but you can’t say she has not much talent. And there’s a difference in not liking one’s performance or saying she has no talent. Like I said, I can dislike people and still acknowledge there talent, don’t know if you are able to do the same.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I don’t know about her acting skills, but agree with Laura Collier about her being crass and vulgar, flipping the bird, talking about bodily functions, etc. and I don’t see why that’s interpreted as gee, how cute, she’s just like us! Huh?

    • Tori says:

      Yes. Acting is an art form. And yes, it is subjective. And yes, you can have the opinion that a person like Cate Blanchett or Meryl Streep or Jennifer Lawrence is a terrible actress. But…yes. People will then raise an eyebrow at you. I’m of the “opinion” that she is absolutely talented. Like the other ladies mentioned above, she has had wonderful vehicles to showcase her talent, and she’s also starred in some sub-par films that DON’T showcase it. She’s also had half the years to work compared to the other two, so we’ll see. But to me, the talent is clearly there. I’d be very, VERY interested in hearing who you think is a “talented actress” if you think she lacks talent. But that’s me. As for the rest, I think she’s getting too much exposure, but I don’t buy that it’s a “schtick”. She seems like a very down-to-earth person with too many people expecting her to give sound bytes equivalent to their own lofty expectations or ideals. She’s a young girl in her early twenties. She probably hears nothing from hollywood except that she should diet and contort her body like 98% percent of the women in hollywood have clearly done (despite many, many of them saying they would never do such a thing prior to “big fame”). These are the issues in her life. This is what is obvious to her and she takes issue with that. And as a woman, I too find it ridiculous and prehistoric that this is STILL a problem for women in the media. For any woman AT ALL. So her discussing weight/food doesn’t bother me. At all. Especially if she’s trying to lend a healthier viewpoint. We can hate on a lot of things, but I don’t know why we have to rip a fellow woman apart for being outspoken about her love of food and her disgust at how people are telling her to lose weight when she already looks healthy. It IS disgusting.

  9. Observer says:

    If this story was true she would have told it much sooner.
    Sounds like something her team came up with for a cute story and oscar nom/campaign.

  10. SnarkySnarkers says:

    JLaw! Shush girl!! I don’t get why she keeps talking about this? Do they ask her about her fall in every interview and she feels she has to come up with new sound bytes? Quit talking about food though Jennifer, for real.

  11. Diana says:

    Oh, how adorable! she’s giving the finger! isn’t she cutest little cutesy cute?!!!

  12. Kiddo says:

    A “cakewalk” (the term derived from an African American form of entertainment) was actually a a competition where prancing and high stepping with style was rewarded by cake to the winner.

    Other than that, I like her, but she is growing a bit tiresome with her cutesy anecdotes.

  13. littlestar says:

    This makes me sound like a miserable person, but I’m starting to think that her “fall” was on purpose…..

  14. Dani says:

    Overrated. Cut it out you’re 23 not 13.

  15. Mark says:

    She’s just like you ladies she likes cake

  16. aasf says:

    I just don’t buy that she eat anything she wants and the whole food thing she is trying to portray. My personal take is she diets like other celebs but is not as extreme and take a more moderate approach. I think it is also important to consider her body type. There nothing wrong with that and she is doing the healthy thing. But I’m if you eat fries and cake and pizza like she is suggesting you are going to be overweight.

  17. Inky says:

    That sounds believable to me. I do similar at times, I will have a thought stuck in my head and be all “why am I thinking that?”, and then realise I was meant to be doing something else or it was meant to remind me of something. Ha, it actually seems like the kind of thing I would do…you know, if I had any skills that would be sufficient to get me any kind of award.

    Agree with the whole, “Why did it take so long for this story to come out?”, because surely over any number of interviews asking the same questions it would have come out earlier. What do I know though?

  18. Athena says:

    I took the “cake-splanation” as a joke really…the woman jokes a lot and sometimes people get it and sometimes they don’t. I get that a lot, too. I adore her…she’s talented and seems cool to me. Love the hospital photos.

  19. Kathycat says:

    Wow she’s just like us…… as usual.

    Except she has social anxiety but thinks Jessie Eisenberg’s OCD is cool.

    Except she was bullied so much she had to switch schools multiple times but then for some weird reason she was “I was never picked on or anything”

    Except she thinks fat shaming should be illegal but thinks it’s okay to fat shame Val Kilmer and skinny shame Kate Moss twice.

    Except she has a toned size four body but she claims to never work out or diet because “nope, not me”

    Except she thinks acting is dumb and overpaid because she’s not “saving lives like doctors and firefighters” but doesn’t really donate any money to charity despite making 27 million last year.

    • m says:

      she is a fantastic manipulator, her off-screen performances are… truly something, wouldn’t you say? they’re worthy of an oscar! it’s nice to know i’m not the only person on earth that doesn’t buy into all her crap. i just know i’m really gonna end up hating her by the time the awards season is over. she is gonna be everywhere… and i just can’t- i cannot anymore… she was kinda annoying at first… and then all of a sudden a few weeks ago it just hit me in the face like a ton of bricks – no más, por favor. :(

  20. Jen says:

    What a moron. Instead of just admitting she was overwhelmed and tripped, she has to go back to her “I’M SO FAT I LOVE CAKE AND PIZZA HURRRR DURRRR” schtick.

  21. JessMa says:

    I’m sorry, but you have no idea what she does with her money. Some celebrities make donations super private and some public. Also she does train for movies. She has spoken about all the physical training required for the hunger games. She is super young so her metabolism is probably great. I ate like a linebacker and didn’t work out at all, and was tall and thin. When I turned 30, I started gaining weight. So now I still eat like a pig, but have to work out to stay thin.

  22. paranormalgirl says:

    Wow. Such harshness. There’s a psych phenomenon called semantic satiation. Sounds like it actually nailed Jennifer Lawrence at the Oscars.

    Semantic Satiation is when you repeat a word or phrase over and over in your head (in this case “kick, walk, kick, walk”) and that internal repetition causes the words to either lose their meaning or even become other words, also with no meaning (in this case, it became “cake walk.”) So she was focused on this meaningless phrase, and forgot all about what the original phrase was all about (kicking the dress and walking), thus stepping on the dress and falling on her face.

    • M. says:

      @ paranormalgirl: Harshness as well as taking it a bit too seriously (LOL!)…I actually thought (still do) that she was joking. I laughed, thought it was funny.

      Loved Jennifer Lawrence in both Catching Fire as well as in American Hustle. Cute hospital photos!!.

    • Helena Hand-Basquet says:

      This is exactly what I came here to write. It’s so obvious that “kick, walk” morphed in “cake walk.” I’m so lost–why all the hate?

    • I Choose Me says:

      Yep. She annoys me sometimes and I was prepared to read her explanation and begin eye-rolling but I actually get what she’s trying to say here and I’m willing to buy that that’s what actually happened.

      With Jennifer Lawrence I really do think that what you see is what you get, just with the volume turned way up when she’s doing her PR thing. I think I’ll continue to like her in films but ignore her interviews from now on unless she says something truly provocative.

      • Tori says:

        “…unless she says something truly provocative.”
        Aaaand this is what I just don’t get. I ignore her interviews largely because she’s been working so much, she’s overexposed. I like a little mystery when I watch an actor/actress. If I know too much about their personal lives, I can’t make that transition to alter-reality when watching them. That said, she never seems to reveal too much about herself in any way that would be marginalizing, at least from the tid-bits you get in the press. But I literally MARVEL at the idea that we would lie in waiting for her to say something “provocative” to get our attention. That is exactly what’s wrong with younger actors today. They crave attention, and we only give it to them when they say something sensational that makes millions of headlines. It’s why so many people are hating on her for being goofy and making jokes about senseless, everyday stuff. Because the rest of her peers are very busy being controversial and “provocative” to get us to read them. I’m lost to how this is a good thing…

  23. JessMa says:

    I also think that she talks about food and weight because reporters love asking about that topic. She also knows how many young fans she has that look up to her. She probably wants to be a positive role model to these impressionable girls that look up to celebrities and try to emulate them. I would rather her tell teen girls she loves cake instead of talking about liquid diets or extreme calorie counting. One of my good friends in high school was always starving herself. She loved that Kate Moss quote about nothing tasting as good as skinny felt.

  24. Sara says:

    Just watched Silver Linings for the first time as I am not a movie person but will watch good ones and it was an awesome movie!

  25. M. says:

    My daughter loved the response that Jennifer Lawrence gave to that Kate Moss quote: “I can think of a lot of things that taste better than skinny feels”…. again, we laughed, thought it was spot on.

  26. Seagulls says:

    There is nothing sadder than seriously ill children.

    I still like this girl. Hey, she’s not Anne Hathaway.

  27. Anna says:

    i’m already starting to feel her backlash because she annoys the hell out of me

  28. Corrie says:

    I give her all the kudos in kicking the media cycle butt for her age at dodging real topics and coming out clear, head up and unafraid. She is a media interview dream. She carries herself so well even if shes giving you topic spin. I think its funny no one says ok get to something personal and real – but she’s so good at being good in the press – whether her story is silly or gross or bs – we just keep it moving. I didn’t like any of her topics of convo for Catching Fire honestly – but she handled it well and she’s got another film under THG to get it right and she never faultered which was more important. She knows who is, doesn’t stray and is confident in her delivery. She’s the female version of Robert Pattinson – they are pros at this… even when they are funny and irreverent and don’t hold back. So i agree with you.

    • Div says:

      @corrie
      Jen is way better than Sparkles at the media thing. He trashed Twilight to kingdom come and complained about the paps constantly. But he’s a white man, has an accent, cute, funny, Twilight did suck, and smiley so he got a pass from some. I’ve never seen Jen attack the quality of the horror film she did or her TV show, which is something I respect about her because it’s something easy to do for the actors who get big like Sparkles, Chris Evans, Rooney Mara, & others.

      She’s basically the most relatable and at ease A level star out there, and when you combine that with her charisma and talent it explains why she is so big. I do wish she would cut it out with the food thing quite so much.

    • Dani2 says:

      Lol Robert wishes he were the male equivalent of Jennifer – if only he had that level of talent or star power. Without her YA franchise, Jen would still be a critically acclaimed, Oscar-nominated actress. Without his, Rob would just be that kid that died in a Harry Potter movie and we wouldn’t even be talking about him today.

  29. Lila says:

    I think what she meant was that her stylist told her to remember ‘kick, walk’ but trying to remember all her instructions in the craziness of the moment, her mind turned it into ‘cake walk’ which just added to the confusion. I’m not a huge fan of hers but this actually amused me. For once something dorky coming from her sounds like something I do all the time when put on the spot. It’s that or my mind blanks which isn’t better. That first picture of her would not be me though. She deserves even more trashy scorn for that than the starlets who flip off paps.

  30. Gistine says:

    I was going to call her Jennifer Snoreance until I saw her with that sick baby. Hard to hate on someone who does that.

  31. Maggie Grace says:

    I’ve said it before, so I won’t say it again. Wait, yes I will. I’m from Louisville, my daughter palled around with Jennifer before she left for Hollywood, I know her mother, etc. – they had over nights at my house, they were pre-16 so I did shuffling of them around in the car, etc. Her personality is not schtick, she really is an adorable klutz, and was always cracking up, she’s very naturally funny. I think sometimes when you grow up as a girl with 2 brothers, you’re just not allowed to see yourself and demand that you be treated as a special little princess. 2 older brothers will clear you of that notion pretty quickly. Jennifer’s mom ran a summer camp for kids that was GReAt – lake swimming, horseback riding, shaving creme fights …. I think that’s how she grew up – as one of the boys who doesn’t take herself too seriously. Is she overexposed? Well, she’s one hell of a hard worker, but if she’s overexposed, it’s her publicist’s fault. Team JLaw – definitely.

  32. Athena says:

    @Maggie Grace: That was sweet to read. And +1,000,000 regarding brothers (I have four older brothers). I totally agree.

  33. Cro-girl says:

    She’s just over exposed and most people are miserable.

  34. Liz says:

    Wow – there are pictures above of her visiting sick children on Christmas Day (not the first time and not the last), yet 95% of comments are talking about how annoying she is. I will gladly look past a comment about cake if she’s going to continue using her celebrity for good.

  35. Shanii says:

    I agree with LIZ. It’s not like any of us actually know how it is to be her, she might be different and deal with fame in a different way. I believe she is the type of girl to actually just say whatever comes to her mind and then afterwards realize how weird/creepy it sounded. I like it that she doesn’t think through everything she says and try to keep up with an image. I know girls who can relate with disliking working out and just wanna stay home and eat and watch TV when she has intense days of work in between. Only very few people can talk about their personality and personal life sounding classy all the time with new witty and nice interviews. She probably repeat herself cause it’s true, there is nothing more interesting about her personal life than just this.

    • Tori says:

      This exactly. A lot of other actresses her age are getting ahead of themselves by trying to sound years above their experiences. They reeaally stretch to sound profound about things they really wouldn’t have experienced at such a tender age. The interviewer probably asks about her weight because so many miserable zealots were calling her “chubby” after she starred in the hunger games. They ask her about her fall at the Oscars because…well, it was a major talking point at the Oscars last year. She isn’t making bigoted remarks. She isn’t falling down drunk. She isn’t preaching to us about sustainability or how much we should be donating to charity (two talking points that a lot of actors push that make me eyeroll to the moon and back), both of which are good things but should probably be left to real activists and people who have a grounded sense of reality when it comes to income and consumerism. JMO, by the way. She’s still a kid, really. She seems normal and harmless. And when you factor in her talents, I just don’t understand why people are hating here. There’s nothing to hate.

      • Kathycat says:

        People are hating because her whole schtick is that she’s refreshingly honest, but in reality she’s one of the greatest PR manipulators ever…… she contradicts herself way too often.

      • Jules says:

        @Kathycat: LOL…people don’t hate Jennifer Lawrence. The same bitchy people that zoom in here like Q-KAZOO every goddamned time a post is written about Lawrence write the same bitchy things. Who knows who the hell they are or who you are…bored, studio shills, K-Stew fans (those remaining stragglers that STILL believe that Jennifer Lawrence somehow hijacked Stewart’s career).

        Who knows. The fact of the matter is, there is a whole wide world outside of Celebitchy, Lawrence is incredibly well liked and popular, talented, beautiful, etc., etc., and hateful comments will do nothing to change that.

  36. Amber says:

    Doesn’t anyone know what a cakewalk is? We did those at school a lot. I don’t think she was thinking about eating cake she was supposed to remember “kick, walk” and her nervous brain turned it into cakewalk. Jeez people are overthinking this.

    • cat1 says:

      seriously! thanks! I don’t know the definition you mean but I just posted a link to the dictionary definition. I love your site, CB, but you jump to conclusions that are wrong at times and don’t stop a minute to go further. Of course, this makes a better headline but it’s … wrong.

      • Amber says:

        A cakewalk is when a bunch of people walk in a circle to music and when the music stops if you are standing on the spot (marked previously with tape or something) you win a cake. It’s an easy game, hence the term ‘easy as a cakewalk’. That’s what I understand it to mean anyway.

  37. dontbuyit says:

    ugh, this woman is so annoying.

  38. Laura says:

    It’s just the beginning, her Oscar campaign it’s gonna be super annoying. I hope it doesn’t work and Lupita Nyong’o wins.

  39. Naomi says:

    I think it is more likely she has done a lot of press since the Oscars and has been asked the exact same questions over and over and has been trying to find ways to keep it fresh. I imagine she is over it by now but at least gives it an honest effort. I’m not going to fault her because the interviewer lacks imagination or chooses to recycle old stories rather than trying to find a new angle.

  40. Temeneos says:

    Am I the only one who thought her stylist told he “kick, walk, kick, walk” and she hears “cakewalk, cakewalk”. It’s a cute new anecdote that breaks the monotony of the other stuff.

    For the record, I think she’s an amazing actress, go watch Winter’s Bone, so incredible

  41. FHealy says:

    I get the whole cakewalk/ kickwalk connection. If something is a “cakewalk” it means it will be easy…..I can totally understand her making a mantra of it in nervous anticipation of a possible Oscar win. She was most likely also silently chanting “kick-walk”….and jumble it all together when her name was called.
    Jeeez, I clearly remember what it was like to be young and nervous when a perceived “spotlight” was on me. She had an authentic and gigantic one on her. It’s not about food!

    When she fell, I could only imagine the Parisien fashionistas and people like Anna Wintour cringing. But what kind of a wretched death trap was her dress?
    Hopefully she’ll wear something walking friendly.

    I get the whole cakewalk/ kickwalk connection.

    It’s a cute anectode. She is still lovely to me. I’ll call her out if she gets too preachy like the fat/skinny shaming debate but not here. I don’t get a fake vibe from her at all.

    I don’t really get what people are annoyed with here. She’s joking about falling over because she was thinking about cake. She’s not saying she’s obsessed with food here, she’s just saying she fell over because in the moment her instructions re. walking in the dress turned to gobbledygook in her mind and she stepped on her dress. So she saw the opportunity to make a little joke.

    Um, cakewalk is an actual term and has nothing to do with cake …?

    I agree with the above, I don’t think she’s talking about how she likes food again here, I think she’s trying to say that her stylist told her “Kick, walk” and she heard “cakewalk” and didn’t realize what the stylist had really said until she fell down. Then she realized she’d heard the word “cakewalk” instead of “kick, walk.”

    err…wasn’t she just making a joke? It’s not called “poor excuses”, it’s called sense of humor.

    after seeing the pictures (articles) of Jennifer Lawrence and Candace Cameron Bure side by side i have to say they look like “before and after”. Jennifer will look like Candace in a few years

    Cute story…it’s obvious to me that Jennifer Lawrence is joking. Anyway, love her and just saw American Hustle…LOVED IT!!. Jennifer Lawrence knocked her role out of the park.

        “bitchy and jealous”

        LOL

        yup, ya got me! of course i’m jealous of the hypocritical hillbilly princess of pizza and… farts. i mean, who wouldn’t be jealous of someone who gleefully tells the world she wet the bed at 13 and has the face of a young sarah jessica parker.

        “she has a huge fanbase”

        i don’t really give a damn, that doesn’t *magically* make her untouchable.

    boy it seems the people on celebitchy have a huge stick out of their ass lol and don’t ave a sense of humor at all
    regarding the ‘cakewalk’ thing, she was just joking about her fall at the oscars which in any case, she is allowed to.
    if you have seen her interviews on youtube, the girl is always cracking jokes somehow, guess some people don’t have a sense of humor
