Life’s a trip for Jennifer Lawrence these days.

Now without a doubt Hollywood’s #1 leading lady, the newly-crowned Best Actress winner fell on the stairs en route to the stage at the 2013 Academy Awards.

It was anything but a fall from grace, though. The star’s stumble (and her acting in Silver Linings Playbook) earned a standing ovation from the crowd.

How does anyone not adore this girl? Watch Jennifer Lawrence fall, then give a charmingly breathless acceptance Oscar speech just seconds later:

As if Jennifer Lawrence’s fall wasn’t endearing enough, her wide-eyed surprise at being on entertainment’s biggest stage (let alone winning) was wonderful.


Of her fellow nominees, she said, "It’s been so amazing getting to know you, you’ve been so nice, and you made this experience unforgettable."

Not that it’s easy for her.

Earlier in the evening, she admitted, "Every time they call my name, there’s one moment where I’m like, ‘I won! Oh my God, I have to go up there!’"

It won’t be the last time.

Now with an Academy Award under her belt and two mega-franchises in their prime (The Hunger Games and X-Men), the 22-year-old beauty’s star is rising.
