When Hollywood legend Kim Novak presented at the Academy Awards in February, the iconic actress didn't receive quite the reaction she expected from her rare public appearance.

Jokes and rumors about Novak's plastic surgery and slurred speech were seemingly everywhere on the Internet in the days to follow the Oscars.

Now, the actress is speaking out against the "bullies" and "jabs."

In a lengthy post on her Facebook page, Novak admits to receiving "fat injections" in her face in order to smooth out her skin and blames her speech difficulties on the fact that she had "taken a pill to relax."

"After the Oscars, I was bullied by the press and the public on the Internet and TV," Novak writes. "However, I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies. We can't let people get away with affecting our lives."

Jared Leto isn't totally convinced by Jennifer Lawrence's lovably clumsy antics at the Academy Awards, specifically the beloved star's famous spills.

  • Jared Leto at the Oscars
  • Jennifer Lawrence Falls at Academy Awards

On Sunday, cameras caught Jennifer Lawrence falling at the Oscars for the second straight year, this time in her Dior gown while waving to fans on the red carpet.

Later, before presenting the Best Actor award, she yelled at someone in the crowd from the stage, saying, "Why are you laughing? What? Is this funny?"

Leto, this year's Best Supporting Actor winner, revealed that she was in fact scolding Jared and his mother and brother, who were laughing in their seats.

“She said, ‘What are you laughing at?’ But what she didn’t know was that Ellen was on the side … making, pantomiming [motions like], ‘Don’t fall, don’t fall.'"

"My mom and brother are all cracking up ... I guess we don’t have any manners. You can take them out of Louisiana but you can’t take Louisiana out of them, right?”

When asked about Jen's infamous tumble that led to the on-stage exchange, Leto said, “You know, I’m starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act."

Someone should have flashed a boob.

So says Jennifer Lawrence to Ellen DeGeneres in the following video, which the talk show host has released online and which takes viewers behind the scenes of the 2014 Academy Awards.

We see Ellen preparing for her hosting gig in the footage, along with her telling J. Law and Kerry Washington about how the Samsung-sponsored Oscars selfie broke Twitter.

It would have broken the entire Internet if someone showed real skin, Lawrence jokes. Alas...

Watch to see DeGeneres receive props from a number of celebrities back stage, tell Will Smith that he's gonna finish hosting for her and then toast to her tremendous staff.

While the 2014 Academy Awards spent several minutes honoring movie heroes, one real-life hero didn't get a chance to join them: 5-year-old "Batkid" Miles Scott.

Scott, who is in remission from leukemia, made headlines last year when the city of San Francisco shut down to honor him and his "Batkid" costume.

He been promised a spot in the Oscars show, only to be cut last-minute. Fortunately, he still got to meet a movie superhero in Spider-Man Andrew Garfield.

Batkid, Andrew Garfield

So what went wrong? A spokesperson blamed scheduling conflicts: "Basically, because of the fluid nature of live TV production, ultimately the segment didn't work."

Garfield, who was listed as one of the Oscars' presenters, rehearsed with Scott the Saturday before the Academy Awards; he also did not appear Sunday.

This prompted speculation that it was the actor who nixed the segment. Not the case. A rep from the Academy issued a statement defending Garfied:

Samsung spent an estimated $20 million on TV ads to run during the 2014 Academy Awards, but Ellen DeGeneres gave them the best product placement ever.

That's right, Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar selfie was not spontaneous.

Best Selfie Ever

Viewers may have noticed Ellen toying with a white Samsung phone during the broadcast, even before she handed a Galaxy Note 3 to Bradley Cooper.

The actor famously took a "selfie" photo of himself and other stars including Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Lawrence with the host.

While the stunt felt spontaneous, and became the most re-Tweeted photo of all time by a huge margin, it wasn't entirely unplanned on Ellen's part.

Samsung and media buying firm Starcom MediaVest negotiated to have its Galaxy smartphone integrated into the telecast, according to insiders.

12 Years a Slave was among the major 2014 Academy Awards winners Sunday, taking home Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay for John Ridley.

Cause for celebration, right? Mostly. Director Steve McQueen and Ridley are reportedly engaged in a feud regarding writing credits for the acclaimed film.

John Ridley and Steve McQueen

When Ridley was announced as the winner of the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for the film, Steve McQueen appeared ... less than thrilled.

Then, Ridley failed to name the film's director among the many "thank you" mentions in the speech. Coincidences and the products of nerves or bad timing?

Possible, certainly. Neither would be unprecedented on such an occasion. But the rumors began anyway, fueled by a tweet from reporter Nikki Finke.

She wrote that her (unnamed) sources "attributing the John Ridley-Steve McQueen cold shoulder at Oscars tonight to dispute over screenplay credit."

Bill Murray gave a brief but poignant shoutout to his old friend Harold Ramis while presenting the Academy Award for Best Cinematography Sunday night.

After announcing the nominees with Amy Adams, Murray added, "Oh, we forgot one: Harold Ramis for Caddyshack, Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day."

The audience roared in approval when the actor mentioned his late former colleague, who wrote all three of the aforementioned Murray comedy vehicles:

When the applause quieted, Murray apologized for stealing the moment, then handed the prize to the actual 2014 Oscar winner, Gravity's Emmanuel Lubezki.

Murray, 63, and Ramis were longtime friends and collaborators who came up in the Chicago comedy scene before heading off to Hollywood decades ago.

Harold Ramis died on February 24 at the age of 69.

Murray told Time of the beloved writer, actor and director who brought so many projects to life: "He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him."

The Oscars are great in so many ways, from Ellen DeGeneres' monologue to John Travolta butchering Idina Menzel's name, but man can the show drag on.

Even Amy Adams was caught checking out her phone at one point.

The Academy Award nominee for American Hustle could've just been staring at her crotch as the cameras randomly cut to her while Tyler Perry introduced Her.

We're gonna go ahead and say this is phone-checking 101, though:

It's not exactly a stretch to say that the show can be a bit of a bore.

Sure, you get to see Jennifer Lawrence falling on the red carpet or Ellen being hilarious ... but even she had to order pizza for the restless celebrities eventually.

You can only fill so much time during a three-hour telecast.

That said, there were plenty of great moments that you can check out on YOUR phone or computer right now! See the best GIFs from the 2014 Oscars below:
