American Hustle star Jennifer Lawrence is one of six actors featured on special individual covers of W magazine’s Movie Issue, out at newsstands now.
Alongside Jennifer, the other fab five cover stars are Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Oprah WInfrey and Lupita Nyong’o. The magazine chose the six actors saying it wanted to honour ‘the year’s biggest stars’.
Jennifer wears a high-waisted ’50s-style Dolce & Gabbana print bikini on the cover and inside the magazine spills the beans on her big trip-up at last year’s Oscars when she won Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook.
‘I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head?’ she relates to the magazine.
‘And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.’
