Unless you’ve had the displeasure of having to walk around in high heels for an entire night, it’s truly impossible to explain. This is why we completely understand why Kristen Stewart took off her Louboutin heels in the middle of the red carpet. Her feet were probably numb by that point, and she decided enough was enough.
Stewart walked the rest of the way barefoot, and even though many would argue it’s not the most classy or graceful way to strut down the red carpet, we totally understand. It’s better to be comfortable than in pain. Besides, she’s tall enough already!
Jon Hamm Miscalculates a Jump
Jon Hamm secured his place as a Hollywood A-lister after his stellar performance in 'Mad Men,' as the one-and-only Don Draper. In fact, his performance was so good that it earned him the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series at the 2015 Emmy Awards. Hamm tried to be cool and jump on stage without using the stairs, but he seemingly forgot that his suit was a bit too tight for that.
Hamm ended up having to shimmy and crawl his way up the stage, and it was all very awkward and not at all cool. Seeing Don Draper rolling onstage and trying to get up is certainly shocking.
Even Helen Mirren Can Trip and Fall
Dame Helen Mirren is considered to be one of the best actresses to ever come out of Britain. She is almost like British royalty, which is what makes it even more difficult to imagine her being anything but graceful. Alas, even royals are humans, and Mirren proved this at a film festival in Berlin a few years back. At 69 years of age, and wearing an elegant, long green dress and heels, Mirren tripped and fell over the red-carpeted stairs.
Apparently, her long dress got caught in her heels, causing her to tumble down. But this lady managed to make even a fall look graceful! Mirren joked that the heels only cost her $39, and she's worn them plenty of times, with only one casualty, so they were definitely worth the money!
Emma Thompson Falls to the Ground
The talented Emma Thompson is a beloved British actress that has been gracing the silver screen since the ‘80s. However, despite her always looking graceful in every red carpet event, Thompson had a tumble in 2013 at the TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The actress was honored by having her handprint on cement, but as she was kneeling, she lost her balance and fell to the ground.
Fortunately, she used the occasion to showcase her acting talents, making the situation even more dramatic as she sprawled all over the carpet and started laughing at herself. Now that’s a performance.
John Travolta Gets in Idina Menzel's Face
John Travolta seems to not have a very good concept of personal space. When at the 2015 Oscars, Travolta got a little too close to actress Idina Menzel and just grabbed her face! Not only that but he also completely mispronounced her name.
Nobody likes having their face touched, especially not without warning and by a stranger. Menzel tries to be a good sport and awkwardly laughs at the situation, but Travolta just keeps grabbing her chin as if to get her attention. John ended up making everybody very uncomfortable.
