Our favorite celebs are usually so picture-perfect, it's easy to forget that they are human-beings just like us. From twisted ankles to tripping on the red carpet, here's a list of stars who bounced back from hilarious wipeouts.

There's no denying that Jennifer Lawrence has many talents and can adapt to many roles. From The Hunger Games to Passengers, JLaw has done it all. So, it might not have come as a surprise when she won an Oscar in 2013.

Unfortunately, as Lawrence was walking toward the stage to accept her Best Actress Award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, she tripped. Jennifer's foot got caught on her dress, causing her to fall up the flight of stairs. With a hand over her face in embarrassment, she took it like a boss shortly after and accepted her award. 

Hayden Panettiere

Actress Hayden Panettiere slipped in her Dennis Basso Spring 2014 collection gown while walking down the red velvet carpet on the Met Gala stairs in 2014. She was trying to lift her giant ballgown's skirt so her heeled feet could touch the floor unobstructed.
