Jennifer Lawrence Blames Her Oscar Tumble on Cake, Gets Sexy for W Magazine

Jennifer Lawrences hits the beach in Hawaii
Actress Jennifer Lawrence is one of the six featured covers from this year’s W magazine annual movie issue.

The actress was photographed by Juergen Teller and is featured lounging while wearing a floral bra and high-waisted bottoms. Last year Lawrence took home the Best Actress Academy Award for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

In the magazine she reveals the real reason why she tripped while walking up to the podium at last year’s Academy Awards.

“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.”

Cake? Really? Nice little story though.
