LOS ANGELES - Kristen Stewart ditched her crutches to hobble onstage as an Oscar presenter, appearing bored and disheveled in the process.
She and Daniel Radcliffe handled one of the less glamorous awards for production design. Stewart read her lines with a slouchy insouciance.
Just before going on, Stewart left a pair of crutches in the wings and apparently the backstage hairstylists didn't get ahold of her for a brushing. Her long brunette hair looked stringy.
The reaction on Twitter was swift and severe.
"Kristen stewart are you ok? And by that I mean where were the hash brownies before u got hit by bus #bruise #limp," tweeted comedian-actor David Spade.
Actor Joel McHale tweeted, "Kristen Stewart is limping because she sprained her ankle from being excessively disinterested."
Backstage, Stewart ran into supporting actress winner Anne Hathaway, who noted her crutches.
"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," said Stewart, explaining that she had stepped on glass.
