That's what friends are for! Jennifer Lawrence hilariously fell (again!) on the Oscars red carpet on March 2, and now the woman that barely caught her fall is speaking out! It turns out, the shoulders the "American Hustle" actress grabbed onto outside L.A.'s Dolby Theatre during the slip belong to none other than her self-proclaimed best friend Laura Simpson.
In an extensive Myspace blog post, model Simpson -- who met the Oscar winner seven years ago -- revealed what it was like to be the star's plus one, and which celebrities she met during and after the big show.
"We finally arrive at the red carpet and as we exit the car, my date eats sh-t and uses my freshly done Lauren Conrad up do to break her fall," Simpson joked in her March 4 post. "The crowd goes wild. There are flashbulbs and people circling, yet no one asks if I need any help because unless you are famous at the Oscars, you are completely invisible."
"It is no wonder actors are crazy. The carpet is filled with screaming fans and photographers who only care about you," she continued. "We finally make it to the end of the carpet and I decide to use the restroom before I sit."
The quick pit-stop ended up becoming her first celebrity encounter (besides her BFF, of course.) "Jessica Biel holds the door open for me and compliments my dress — no human being should be allowed to have her face and body," she quipped. Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie also showed off her "Kardashian-sized diamond ring" while in line.
Once inside the venue, Lawrence, 23, took her seat in the front row next to boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, and her "American Hustle" costar Bradley Cooper. Simpson didn't get much of a view behind a camera crane, but did manage to interact with other A-listers.
