Jennifer Larence’s fall during the 2013 Academy Awards will always be remembered as one of the most iconic moments in the ceremony’s history.

But the actress has admitted that she wasn’t very happy about the fact some people accused her of faking the stumble when she went to collect her best actress award for Silver Linings Playbook.

Reminiscing on the moment in a new chat, the Hunger Games star admitted she once confronted CNN anchor Anderson Cooper over his claims she fell on purpose.

Speaking on Dear Media’s Absolutely Not with Heather McMahan podcast, Jennifer recalled the moment when she won the Oscar: ‘I was very nervous and also very superstitious. I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win so I didn’t want to write down a speech, I had it all in my head.

‘I was ready… and then all the adrenaline clears it out. They call my name and I’m elated and in shock… you kind of blackout. I don’t actually remember what that moment felt like. And then I fell.’

The 30-year-old continued: ‘It just erased everything from my mind. My whole brain went blank. I can look back at that fondly now and I’m a little older but for a very long time, the whole thing was very sensitive.

‘I saw Anderson Cooper said on CNN three days later, “Well she obviously faked the fall”. It was so devastating because it was this horrific humiliation to me… I don’t know if I’ll ever have the chance to get a speech like that again.’

Jennifer admitted: ‘That didn’t feel good for me not to have a speech. And I’ll tell you what, I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know. My friend told me that a vein was bulging out of my neck.

‘But he apologized and I think we’re good friends now. On my end we’re all good.’

She added: ‘What I led with was, “Have you ever tried to walk in a ballgown? Then how do you know?” He gave a wonderful apology.’

Plus, the fact Jennifer went to suffer a similar fate the next year on the Oscars red carpet confirmed she just isn’t the best with couture gowns.

Bless her!
