Jennifer Lawrence is one of six stars featured on the cover of W magazine’s “Movie Issue” for February 2014.

In her interview, the American Hustle star explains why she fell up the stairs on her way to accept the Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook at last year’s Academy Awards.

Lawrence shares, “I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, ‘Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk.'”

The star recalls, “I thought, ‘Why is cakewalk stuck in my head?’ 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.'” Lawrence adds, “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.”

The other five covers feature Amy Adams, Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong’o and Matthew McConaughey.
