Crutches don’t slow down Kristen Stewart at Oscars

Safe to say Kristen Stewart rocked the most unconventional accessory on the Oscar red carpet to go with her lacy, strapless Reem Acra gown: a pair of crutches.

She “cut the ball of her foot, quite severely on glass two days ago,” Stewart’s makeup artist, Beau Nelson, told PEOPLE. Stewart, who had a hard time finding flat Oscar-worthy shoes, is in “a little bit of pain,” he adds.

It may have also been the star's own fault. MTV's Josh Horowitz tweeted that upon asking Stewart what happened she replied, "I'm an idiot!"

Stewart ditched the crutches for a photo opportunity, and did her best to gimp down the red carpet. She was seen chatting with Best Actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence, who later helped Stewart with her crutches.

Aside from the crutches, Stewart paired her beautiful gown with a laid-back hairstyle and a Fred Leighton 19th century necklace.

Fans took to Twitter to both show their support and applaud Stewart for braving the carpet with crutches.

Fresh off her "Breaking Dawn Part 2" sweep of the Razzies, you might wonder why Stewart is at the 85th Academy Awards. Well, she and her crutches will be presenting an award tonight.

We'd say break a leg, but in this case…
