Jessica Chastain Pulled a JLaw and Tripped While Accepting Her SAG Award
Jessica Chastain took home the SAG Award for Best Female Actor in a Television Movie or Series last night, and ended up pulling a Jennifer Lawrence and tripping as she climbed up the stairs to get her trophy. But she recovered like a pro, so honestly the moment turned out to be a win (quite literally since...she won).

Jessica told People that she was "a little embarrassed" after her fall, saying "I tripped on the stairs—but I had two very handsome men helping me up, so that wasn't so bad." She added, "I'm just so over the moon and happy and I can't believe it."
She gave a similar quote to Entertainment Tonight, saying "Yeah, I fell on the stairs, that's good because some people didn't know that I did. I was trapped in my dress and I had very nice men helping me, so that was a plus."
During her acceptance speech, Jessica recalled Philip Seymour Hoffman coming to speak to her class in college, and "encouraged us to keep going even when we felt like no one was watching us." She added, "I'm telling this story now because it reminds me of how powerful our mind is and that we are what our thoughts create. So I just wanna tell everyone who might be struggling at home, to all the actors that I get to meet: Keep going. You're one job away. I look forward to working with you. I'll see you on set. I love you."
Love this advice!
