In a recent conversation with Entertainment tonightthe No hard feelings star said she wanted to explain what happened.
“I wasn’t making a political statement, not that I wouldn’t,” she told the publication. “I had no idea until it came out that there was this whole controversy with people wearing flats, or something, walking barefoot on the red carpet. I had no idea. My shoes were one size too big.”
The actress, who previously fell on a red carpet, attended a film screening Anatomy of a fall and said she walked onto the carpet in heels, but came back to take pictures with her production team at Excellent Cadaver.
“So we had to do an Excellent Cadaver picture, and I knew I’d eat if I went into the shoes that were a size too big,” the Elevated road star said. “I put the slippers on and everyone was like, ‘What a statement! Wow,'” adding, “I’m all for making a statement. I just wish it was on purpose.
Elsewhere in the interview, the Oscar winner opened up about what attracted her No hard feelingsexplaining that she was excited to “pull the boundaries” with its inappropriate and hilarious moments, courtesy of writer-director Gene Stupnitsky.
“I’ve known Gene for years and he’s the funniest person I’ve ever met in my life,” she said. “So when I read it, I mean, I died.” As for the aftermath, Lawrence joked that she was a little worried about how the movie would land. “The closer you get to like the line and the more you dance with the line,” she added, “but of course, after you wrap something like that, you’re like, ‘Are we going okay?’”
