Actress Jennifer Lawrence does not have the best relationship with high heels. In fact, Lawrence’s relations with the popular women’s shoe are said to have a real fallout. While wearing strapped high heels, Lawrence fell at the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere in New York. Lawrence slipped while walking up a staircase towards a photo call. Thankfully, Lawrence was saved from a second slip-up with the intervention of an assistant, who grabbed Lawrence’s wrist in time.

The Hunger Games star is known for taking her tumbles, especially during the Oscars. In fact, Lawrence fell on the red carpet for two years in a row. Fortunately, Lawrence still manages to stay poised in spite of her clumsy habit.
