Jennifer Lawrence is having a laugh about those times she took a tumble at the Oscars.

The star won Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook in 2013, and as she made her way onstage to accept the honor, she fell on the stairs. Then, the following year, Lawrence again fell, that time on the red carpet.

At the 2024 Academy Awards on Sunday, Oscars Ambassador Amelia Dimoldenberg (known for her Chicken Shop Date web series) jokingly asked Lawrence, 33, if she has "tips" to future winners about "not falling up the stairs."

"Well, yeah, just don't do that," Lawrence said. "You know, I fell the next year too. So then it just looked like I 100% faked. Oh, it was awful."

About the 2014 mishap, she recalled, "I fell on a cone." Asked Dimoldenberg, "An ice cream cone?" Lawrence played along, "I wish. No, an orange cone."

Lawrence, who has been nominated for an Oscar four times including the year she won, said she was excited to be back at the award show on Sunday. She presented this year's Best Actress winner (pal Emma Stone) alongside other past winners Charlize Theron, Michelle Yeoh, Sally Field and Jessica Lange.

"I'm really excited," she told Dimoldenberg. "I realized yesterday when I came to rehearsal, I don't think, I haven't been here since I was 25."

Back in 2013, Lawrence, then 22, quickly joked about her fall in her acceptance speech after getting a standing ovation. "Thank you. You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing, but thank you. This is nuts," she began her speech.

Lawrence recalled winning her Oscar and the fall that went viral during a podcast interview in 2020.

"I was very nervous and also very superstitious. I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win. I didn’t want to write down a speech,” she said on the Absolutely Not podcast.

"I had everything in my head. I was very, very nervous but I was ready. All of the adrenaline clears out and they call my name and I’m elated and I’m in shock. And then I fell, and it erased everything from my mind. My full brain went blank."

She added, "I can look back at it now fondly, but for a very long time the fall thing was very sensitive."
