Jennifer Lawrence denies that her second Oscar fall was faked

You can call her a klutz, but don’t call her a fake.

Internet trolls have struck again… claiming Jennifer Lawrence’s second Oscars tumble - this time on the red carpet rather than on the stage - was completely pre-planned.

Not cool, says Lawrence.

In an interview with Marie Claire, the 23-year-old said about the tumble, part deux: "Trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland - I'm craftier than that!"

"Honestly, I'm just doing my best. But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you." she continued.

It’s been circulating that the Oscar award winner’s second fall was secretly plotted in advance to extend her kooky, down to earth and authentic persona.

"Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: people are going to get sick of me," she told the magazine.

"My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, and I can't not photo-bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity."

Lawrence also opened up about the one subject normally off limits - her long-distance relationship with boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult.

"It's hard when you're both working. It's important to keep your individuality when you're a couple and keep your own life," said Lawrence.

She continued: "When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super-busy. Obviously you know what they're doing, and you trust them."

It is this mutual understanding that has kept them together, despite the distance separating the pair.

“We're so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We'd be living together. At least this way he's in the same boat as I am: We can both go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other,” she said.

And this own life of hers involves plenty of girl friends. It's all about girl power, you see.

"I don't trust a girl who doesn't have any girlfriends," she claimed. "I have really close girlfriends, but they are guys like me - girls who eat and don't know anything about fashion."
