Appearing on the Absolutely Not podcast this week -- the same podcast where she revealed she used to be "a little bit Republican" -- Lawrence reflected on her 2013 Oscar win for Best Actress and how tripping on the way to the stage eclipsed the honor.
"I was ready, 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 a speech, so I have everything in my head and very, very nervous and I was ready," she recalled. "I'm having a good time, they call my name and I'm elated and in shock. You kind of black out. I don't remember that moment they called my name. And then I fell and it just erased everything from my mind and my whole brain went blank."
While she said she can look back "fondly" at that moment now, "for a very long time, the whole thing was very sensitive." So sensitive, in fact, she had a big issue when Cooper suggested her fall was a publicity stunt.
"I'm sorry, but Anderson Cooper, I saw him on CNN like 3 days later saying, 'Well, she obviously faked the fall' and it was so devastating because it was this horrific humiliation to me that took away ... I don't know if I'll ever have a chance to get a speech like that again," she explained.
"That didn't feel good for me to not have a speech and I'll tell you what, I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know," she continued. "My friend told me a vein was bulging out of my head. But he apologized and I think we're good friends now [laughs]. On my end, we're all good."
She said she went up to him and asked, "Have you ever tried to walk up stairs in a ballgown?" He, of course, did not. "He apologized immediately," said Lawrence, "Wonderful apology, I was all fired up. He probably told everybody I was a psycho."
