Jennifer Lawrence Falls At Oscars When Accepting Best Actress Award (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Poor Jennifer Lawrence. She may have undeniable talent, but she might not always have grace.

Lawrence fell when walking to the stage to accept the Oscar for Best Actress on Sunday night. The "Silver Linings Playbook" actress took a tumble on her voluminous Dior gown when she attempted to walk up the stairs at the Dolby Theatre.


Once on stage, Lawrence brushed off the fumble and joked that the audience was only applauding to ease her embarrassment.

"You guys are just standing up because I fell and you feel bad," she said. "That was embarrassing."

Prior to the awards show, Lawrence revealed that she was quite nervous about the big night. "My biggest fear is speaking publicly," she told the Washington Post earlier in the evening. "I’m so nervous about presenting, I’m trying not to think about what I would say if I won."

While in London at a dinner before the 66th British Academy Film Awards, Lawrence tripped on a curb and lost her shoe while trying to maneuver through a crowd, Us Weekly reported.
