So It Wasn't Meryl! Jodie Foster Needed Crutches After Injuring Herself in a Fall While Skiing

(People.com):

Jodie Foster has skiing rather than Meryl Streep to blame for her unexpected Oscars accessory – crutches.

The Oscar-winner, 55, helped present the Academy Awards for Best Actress alongside Jennifer Lawrence, 27, on Sunday night but, due to an injury, had to use the rather fancy white supports.

The actress jokingly told the audience that Meryl Streep “I, Tonya’ed” her. Her jab was, of course, a reference to Best Picture nominee I, Tonya — which explores figure skater Tonya Harding’s life before, during and after the infamous 1994 attack on Nancy Kerrigan.

However, Foster’s rep tells PEOPLE that it was not Streep but snow responsible for the injury as Foster fell while skiing a few weeks ago.

Wearing flats and with the help of the crutches, Foster made it to the microphone with relative ease considering her injury.

Foster and Lawrence presented Best Actress to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star Frances McDormand.

The duo both worked together on 2011’s The Beaver (Lawrence starred in the film alongside Mel Gibson, and Foster directed).

The 2018 Oscars were held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4 and telecast live on ABC.
