Foot Injury Forced Kristen Stewart To Use Crutches At Oscars

Published July 7, 2013 by gossipzoo

Kristen Stewart

Sunday night Kristen Stewart suprised fans by arriving at the 85th Annual Academy Awards on crutches.

She was helped out of her limosine with the aid of the medical device before posing on the red carpet in a white and gold Reem Acra gown without them.

On Saturday she was spotted limping during rehearsals for the prestigious event.

According to People.com, she injured herself after stepping on a piece of glass. Her make-up artist told the website: “[She] cut the ball of her foot, quite severely, on glass two days ago,” adding she was in “a little bit of pain.”

Her hair stylist told Us Weekly: “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.”

It must have been a rough few days for the star. On Saturday night her film “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” dominated the 2013 Golden Raspberry Awards, which “honors” the year’s worst films.

Among other awards, the vampire film was voted “Worst Picture,” and Stewart landed the “Worst Actress” accolade. She did not attend the event.

Charlize Theron came to the rescue of a security guard who suffered a seizure before the Academy Awards on Sunday, according to a report.

The Monster star was heading into the prizegiving at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater when a man working at the ceremony fell to the ground.

Editors at E! Online report Theron rushed to the security guard’s aid as another onlooker phoned a doctor.

Theron didn’t let the drama affect her appearance at the ceremony – she teamed up with Channing Tatum to perform a ballroom routine while host Seth MacFarlane sang Fred Astaire’s The Way You Look Tonight.

Speaking to E! Online later in the evening, Theron said of her performance, “(It was) completely nerve-wracking, but how could I not dance with Channing Tatum? He’s so wonderful!”

“I was sort of tricked into it. I thought it was going to be something smaller, like he (MacFarlane) pulls me up from the audience and we do a little spin. But then he was was like, ‘Rehearsals start Monday!'”
