WATCH: Jennifer Lawrence Addresses Her Oscars Fall
Jennifer Lawrence won big and fell big at the Oscars last night. Her Christian Dior Couture dress was amazing and her acceptance speech after falling on the stairs was humble and charming, but her post-win press conference was perhaps the funniest thing she did all night. Of course, we have it right here.
After accepting the award for Best Actress, Lawrence went backstage to the press room, but not before she took a well-deserved celebratory shot, which might’ve actually caused her to bust out the middle finger in front of the cameras.
Anyway, the questions backstage revolved around how she felt about winning, how she got ready for the big night, and, of course, the fall. After a reporter asked about the tumble Lawrence gamely responded:
“Was that on purpose? Absolutely. What do you mean what happened? Look at my dress. I tried to walk up stairs in this dress! That’s what happened. I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs.”
As for the dress itself, she told WWD earlier in the day:
“I knew it was the one. I mean, we had to take like six inches off the train because it was a little ridiculous, and it still is ridiculous, but I love it.”
So do we. Then Lawrence “rested her hand on [Bradley] Cooper’s shoulder while in intense conversation with [Leonardo] DiCaprio” at Harvey Weinstein‘s afterparty at the Soho House in Hollywood. How else do you top off such a night?
