Jennifer Lawrence Covers Marie Claire, Says Tripping Incident on Oscars Red Carpet Was Unintentional

Whether you're obsessed with her or just downright sick of seeing her mug, America just can't seem to shake their girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence, who covers the June issue of Marie Claire. The glossy caught up with the Oscar-winning actress to chat about her relationship with X-Men costar Nicholas Hoult, losing to Lupita Nyong'o at this year's Oscars, and of course, why she can't seem to ever keep her footing in those huge Dior gowns.

If you remember (how could you forget?), J.Law had yet another Oscars-related wardrobe malfunction this year, before she even made it to her seat inside the Dolby Theatre. She fell on the red carpet on her way in, which, when you think about it, is a step up from the year before when she famously tripped up the stairs in another voluminous Dior number to receive her Oscar for Best Actress. Tripping two times at the Oscars? Folks began to get suspicious that Lawrence's endearing clumsiness was just an act. But J.Law says that her slip-up was most certainly unplanned:

“I’m trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there’s a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You’re fucked. They’re totally going to think this is an act…’  But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland – I’m craftier than that!”

We'd like to think so, too. But if the "stumblers" (the Jennifer Lawrence equivalent of Barack Obama's birthers) are looking to officially start the J.Law backlash, they have the actress' full support: "But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you."
