Kristen Stewart showed up with crutches to the 85th Academy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday (February 24). The 22-year-old actress dropped them to pose with Rick Carter and Daniel Radcliffe in the press room. She also didn’t have them with her when she presented on stage.
She still looked stunning in a Reem Acra gown, Jimmy Choo heels and Fred Leighton jewelry.
The Associated Press reports that after Anne Hathaway won for Best Actress – she went backstage, saw Kristen and exclaimed, “Oh no!”
“I know, I’m an idiot,” Stewart replied. “But congratulations!”
After Hathaway said, “Please tell me you’re going on stage with those [crutches],” Kristen replied, “Nope. I’m gonna hobble.”
Anne then quipped, “Well, break a leg . . . Oops!”
Kristen’s team told US magazine, “She had sliced her foot and everyone was worrying about would she wear heels or flats or one heel, crutches or no crutches. She tried so many options, she was really a trouper.”
Hairstylist Danilo added, “Kristen was nervous about her crutches so having her friends around playing music was just what she needed. We all were trying to make her feel better and her friends were trying to tell her she’d be fine, she has insecurities about being in front of people so today was even tougher.”
