BREAK A LEG

Anne Hathaway, holding her new Oscar, ran into Kristen Stewart, who was on crutches, backstage.

“Oh no!” Hathaway said.

“I know, I’m an idiot,” Stewart replied. “But congratulations!”

“Please tell me you’re going on stage with those,” Hathaway said, pointing to the crutches.

“Nope. I’m gonna hobble,” Stewart said.

“Well, break a leg,” Hathaway said. “Oops.”

Stewart said she stepped on glass.

“I just hope it doesn’t open up right now,” she said backstage.
