Jennifer Lawrence, Confronting Anderson Cooper addressing the falling at the Oscars

Jennifer Lawrence narrates the story about how Anderson Cooper claimed about the horrific humiliation to her about the devastating incident, or the falling at the Oscars. Jennifer Lawrence has won the Best Actress Award seven years ago for her “Silver Linings Playbook” and now, she can finally say that she has moved on quite far from the infamous moment where she was taunted and humiliated for falling down while she has been walking up the staircases. Recently, Lawrence has been looking back at the Oscar fall and she seemed to be recalling the incident during an appearance on Heather McMahan’s “Absolutely not” podcast, following which she opened up about Anderson Cooper’s confrontation. 

Lawrence’s opinion shared in a speech 

Jennifer Lawrence said, “I was ready for it. I was very nervous and also very superstitious. I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win. I didn’t want to write down a speech.” She further added, “I had everything in my head. I was very, very nervous but I was ready. All of the adrenaline clears out and they call my name and I’m elated and I’m in shock…And then I fell, and it erased everything from my mind. My full brain went blank. I can look back at it now fondly but for a very long time the fall thing was very sensitive.” 

She kept on saying more on this, “Anderson Cooper, I saw him on CNN three days later saying, ‘Well she obviously faked the fall,’ and it was so devastating because it was this horrific humiliation to me. I don’t know if I’ll ever have a chance to give a speech like that again, so it didn’t feel good for me not to have a speech. I’ll tell you what, I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know. My friend told me a vein was bulging out of my eyes. He apologized. I think we’re good friends now. On my end, we’re all good. What I led with was, ‘Have you ever tried to walk up stairs in a ball gown? So then how do you know.’ He apologized immediately and said he didn’t know and gave this wonderful apology. I was all fired up…he probably told everyone I was a psycho.”

Oscar fall had been a sensitive topic for Lawrence

The fall is certainly a very sensitive topic for Lawrence and it led to a quick and rambling Oscar speech wherein the actress got a point to take forward a quick and rambling Oscar speech while she didn’t even require to thank her “Silver Linings Playbook” director, David O. Russell. Lawrence further said, “I would give anything to be able to go back and redo that moment. The fall startled me and made me forget my speech and made me forget to thank important people…I didn’t thank David when I wouldn’t have a career if it weren’t for him. I didn’t thank anyone from the movie — I wished a random person happy birthday, then stumbled off.”
