Jennifer Lawrence said she couldn’t help but confront CNN newsman Anderson Cooper following his wrong assertion that she faked her famous and embarrassing fall at the 2013 Academy Awards.
The “Silver Linings Playbook” actress who’s currently 30-years-old smartly recalled she was “very, very nervous” the very night of the fall, which took place when she was collecting her award for Best Actress.
“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 told Heather McMahan on the “Absolutely Not” podcast.
The creative actress disclosed she was still recovering from the public embarrassment when she heard CNN Cooper joking on his show about whether she faked the stunt.
“It was so devastating because it was this horrific humiliation to me, that took away. I don’t know if I’ll ever have the chance to give a speech like that again,” said Jennifer Lawrence.
After several months passed, Lawrence ran into the CNN anchor at a holiday party and decided to confront him, asking, “Have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ballgown? So then how do you know?”
Lawrence added, “he apologized immediately, he was like, ‘I don’t know, I have no idea’ and gave this wonderful apology. And I was all fired up. Probably told everyone that I was a psycho. I think we’re good friends now.”
