Jared Leto: Jennifer Lawrence Falling at Oscars "A Bit of an Act" ... Maybe?

by at .

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

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."

Last year, she similarly stumbled up the stage in a Dior gown while walking up the stairs to accept the award for Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook.

Lawrence was the most tweeted-about star during the 2014 Academy Awards, so it certainly doesn't hurt that her gaffes (and reactions) get a lot of attention.

Still, does Leto really think she faked it? She certainly doesn't try to hide her inner goofball or try to appear polished, but that doesn't make her inauthentic.

The Ellen DeGeneres Oscar selfie? Totally staged product placement for Samsung. Kind of sad in a sense. So we'll choose to believe Jen is the real deal:
