Cake, you sly devil!

Turns out the sweet stuff is to blame for Lawrence’s big Best Actress tumble at last year’s Academy Awards. How, exactly? Well, here’s what the actress told Lynn Hirschberg in the latest issue of W:

“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.”

Makes sense — after all, we know how hungry the Hunger Games star was before the show. Related: How is there no “Jennifer Lawrence says she’s starving on the red carpet” supercut yet?
