85th Annual Academy Awards - Departures

Kristen Stewart really took that “break a leg” comment literally last night at the Oscars. HAHAHAHA, that was a hilarious joke. Now that we’ve got it out of the way, why was Kristen Stewart on crutches? What happened? Was it a symaphty ploy because Kristen Stewart realized no one but a monster would say anything bad about anyone on crutches? We might have been the only people wondering that. Fortunately, US Weekly is around to fill us in. They explain:

“She had sliced her foot and everyone was worrying about would she wear heels or flats or one heel, crutches or no crutches,” manicurist Ashlie Johnson told Us. “She tried so many options, she was really a trouper.”

“Kristen was nervous about her crutches so having her friends around playing music was just what she needed,” hairstylist Danilo said. “We all were trying to make her feel better and her friends were trying to tell her she’d be fine, she has insecurities about being in front of people so today was even tougher.”

I mean, that seems like it has more to do with working style choices around crutches than it has to do with the cause of the crutches, but okay. She cut her foot. That is what happened. She will be fine.

I still think it was a sympathy ploy.
