Way to keep it upright, Jennifer Lawrence!

The Oscar-winning actress almost suffered her umpteenth red carpet fall Monday at the London premiere of X-Men: Apocalypse but was ultimately able to catch her balance before she toppled over and hit the ground. J.Law isn't always so lucky, though, because as we've seen time and time again, falling down is kind of her thing.

Perhaps most iconically, Jen took a tumble at the 2013 Oscars as she made her way to the stage to accept her Academy Award.

It was endearing, to say the least, and she handled it well. "Thank you," she told the cheering audience blushingly after Bradley Cooper ran to her rescue. "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing but thank you."

Gravity got the best of J.Law once again at the 2014 Academy Awards.

She swears, though, this wasn't a schtick. 

"I'm trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there's a traffic cone," later recalled in an interview with Marie Claire's June issue. "The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You're f--ked. They're totally going to think this is an act...'"

"But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs," she said. "I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland—I'm craftier than that!"

Jen almost took a tumble in May 2014 at the New York premiere of X-Men; Days of Future Past. Fortunately for her, two helpful assistance were within arms reach and helped Jen from steady herself before her high heels could fully declare a victory.

From there, Jen had a good streak, remaining upright for a good number of consecutive red carpet appearances. Then, just when we were starting to think J.Law's clumsiness was a thing of the past, she wiped out once again with the cameras watching.

This time, it was at the November 2015 premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 in Madrid. 

Co-stars are well-aware of the fact that actress is a bit of a klutz. During an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers , Liam Hemsworth joked that Jen is "terrible at walking."

"I am constantly surprised at how much she falls down without trying at all," he said with a laugh.

Clumsiness can never be completely prevented, but accident-prone people can and should take precautions...right? That's why we were semi-shocked when J.Law hopped on a horse and galloped through the desert sans helmet as part of her Vogue shoot.

Avoiding a head injury is tricky enough on two feet, but it's even tougher when you're controlling four more that belong to someone else. Gotta keep that noggin protected, J.Law, even if that means having helmet head for a Vogue shoot!
