How was your day today? You already know about my day, which, although the part to which I’m referring only took up a bit of the morning, will leave me with enough extra stress and anxiety for the rest of the week! Speaking of stress and anxiety, can you imagine the stress and anxiety that Jennifer Lawrence felt after falling so beautifully while walking up to accept her Academy Award for “Best Actress” when she was twenty-two years old? (Just kidding.) (Do you think Jennifer Lawrence’s shoulders ever rise up to her neck, or are they just always even?) And have you ever wondered why she fell like that? (No? Because you saw the dress she was wearing?) Well, she talks about it a bit in W Magazine, via The Independent:
“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.”
Oh, Jennifer. You’ve certainly out Jennifered yourself this time. How about you guys, though? Cakewalk? Tripping on your dresses because your dresses got stuck under your feet? Looking forward to closing your eyes later? HOW WAS YOUR DAY?!
