1. Jennifer Lawrence – Oscars 2013
As Jennifer Lawrence has remained a critics and award show darling since the early 2010s, she’s had her fair share of mishaps. It certainly does not help that Lawrence admits to being one of the clumsiest stars in all of Hollywood!
For instance, in 2013, as Lawrence climbed the stairs to pick up her Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, her dress caught and she tripped, embarrassing herself in front of millions. Fortunately, presenters Hugh Jackman and Jean Dujardin immediately came to her rescue, helping her up. Moments later, Lawrence laughed it off on stage, even joking that the standing ovation she received came out of pity!
2. John Travolta – Oscars 2015
From the single-shot below, you can tell this had to have been a very uncomfortable red carpet encounter. At the Academy Awards in 2015, photographers captured actor John Travolta trying to kiss Scarlett Johansson at the award show, with his arm around her waist. Meanwhile, it’s quite clear from the actresses’ moody pose that she did not enjoy the attention.
However, afterward, Johansson defended Travolta, especially against some particularly hateful comments. “The image that is circulating is an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was very sweet and totally welcome. That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live,” she tweeted.
