Oscars 2014
All you need to know about 2014's Academy Awards.
If you recall, Jennifer Lawrence tripped while on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars, and the year before she tripped while walking up a set of stairs to accept her Best Actress Oscar for Silver Lining’s Playbook.

Well Jared Leto is wondering if all of this is just for show.

“You know, I’m starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act,” the 42-year-old singer-actor told Access Hollywood.

Right before calling Leto’s name to present his Best Actor award, Lawrence drove off script by looking at the audience and asking “Why are you laughing? What, is this funny? I’m still watching you!”

It turns out, that the apparent source of the actress’ distraction was none other than the host making fun of her off stage which caused Leto and his family to laugh, which made Jennifer Lawrence say the line.

“[Lawrence] said, ‘What are you laughing at?’ But what she didn’t know was that Ellen [DeGeneres] was on the side…making, pantomiming [motions like], ‘Don’t fall, don’t fall!’, and my mom and brother are all cracking up,” Leto revealed to reporters.

Leto then made a joke pointed at his family members and the state Louisiana, saying, “I guess we don’t have manners. You can take them out of Louisiana, but you can’t take the Louisiana out of them, right?”

Do you think Jared was throwing shade, or just kidding around? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
