Jennifer Lawrence Explains Her Outfit Change at Cannes: “I Wasn’t Trying to Make a Political Statement.”
Jennifer Lawrence broke the internet when she was seen going down the steps outside the Palais des Festival in a red Christian Dior dress and black flip-flops.
The star of “No Hard Feelings” said she wanted to explain what happened in a recent interview with “Entertainment Tonight.”
“I wasn’t making a political statement, not that I wouldn’t,” she told the magazine. “I didn’t know there was a big deal about people wearing flats or going barefoot on the red carpet until it kind of came out. I had no clue. My shoes were too big by one size.”
The actress has fallen before on a red carpet. She was at a showing of the movie Anatomy of a Fall and said she walked up the carpet in heels, but she came back to take pictures with her production team at Excellent Cadaver.
So, we had to take an Excellent Cadaver shot, and the Causeway star said, “I knew I’d throw up if I went down in shoes that were a size too big.” “I put on the flip-flops, and then everyone was like, “What a statement! “Wow,” she said, adding, “I’m all for making a point. I’d just like it to be done on purpose.”
In another part of the conversation, the Oscar-winning actress talked about what made her want to be in No Hard Feelings. She said that she was excited to be able to “push the envelope” with the movie’s inappropriate and funny parts, which were written and directed by Gene Stupnitsky.
She said, “I’ve known Gene for a long time, and he’s the funniest person I’ve ever met.” “So, when I read it, I was dying,” she said. Lawrence joked that she was a little worried about how the movie would do after it came out. “The closer you get to the line, the more you’re kind of dancing with the line,” she said. “But of course, after you wrap something like that, you’re like, ‘Are we going to be OK?'”
