We'd struggle to walk in those heels full stop, let alone while wearing 10 or so kilos of couture.

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.
