If you thought 2013 was the Year of Jennifer Lawrence, then brace yourself because 2014 is about to get even bigger for everyone's imaginary best friend. 

In an interview for W Magazine's annual movie issue, the 23-year-old explains her "famous Oscar fall" last year. The trip was memorable - and definitely would be most award-winning celeb's worst nightmare. But the story behind it is nothing if not heart-warming. 

"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?"

Yes, at a key turning point of J-Law's life, her mind was on baked goods. But it gets better: 

"And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realised 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."

Oh you lovable klutz, you! 

Given the early Oscar buzz around the her performance in American Hustle, we hope her stylist is working on a less distracting mantra this year.
