"Jodie Foster, on crutches to present the lead actress award alongside a statuesque Jennifer Lawrence, explained her injury thusly: "[Meryl] Streep. When J.Law asked Foster what happened to her, Foster cracked, "Streep!"

"And now I want to get some perspective", she continued. Lawrence: "She tripped me once".
