Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence was starving on the way to the 2013 Academy Awards on Feb. 24 because she hadn't eaten all day.
"I didn't eat today because I was so stressed," Lawrence told reporters backstage after winning the best-actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. "And then I was starving on the way over and that sucked.
"The process was so stressful. I felt like Steve Martin in 'Father of the Bride,' watching my house being torn apart. And my whole family was getting ready. It was chaotic."
Whatever she did clearly paid off, as Jennifer is earning raves for the elegant Dior Haute Couture gown she wore on the Oscars red carpet and the slinky Calvin Klein dress she donned at the Vanity Fair after-party.
Jennifer, who fell while making her way to the stage to accept her award, later joked about the misstep. "I tried to walk upstairs in this dress, and that's what happened," she said. "I think I stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs."
The athletic 5-foot-7 Lawrence, who joked that she's considered fat by Hollywood standards, has said she'll never go on a crash diet or become emaciated because she wants to be a positive fitness role model for her young fans.
"I’m so tired of the lollipops,” Lawrence, 22, told Elle. "I think it's really important for girls to have people to look up to and to feel good about themselves. I'm just a normal girl who likes to eat.
"I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner.' I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong — not thin and underfed."
