After seeing her hobble around during the Oscars – with crutches and without – we felt sorry for the actress. Of course, having Jennifer Lawrence help out on the red carpet and Daniel Radcliffe to lean on while presenting an award surely didn’t suck, it was still sad to see her looking so pitiful.
But, then again, it felt a bit like déjà vu. Haven’t we seen KStew limping before? And hasn’t she hurt her wrist or something?
After doing a little research, we could only come to one conclusion: Kristen is as likely to fall into harm’s way as pre-vampire Bella. Here’s a look at her most notable injuries over the past few years.

When Kristen arrived at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards in a gorgeous, red Yigal Azrouel dress paired with black Converse hi-top sneakers, most people just thought she was being edgy and cool. Alas, she probably would have worn a pair of killer heels had she not twisted her ankle. Making matters worse, the starlet dropped her Golden Popcorn trophy and awkwardly tried to catch it as she accepted the award for Best Female Performance. February 2011: Broken Left Thumb
Kristen tried to hide her arm underneath a jacket as she traipsed through LAX airport, likely on her way to Vancouver to shoot “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.” However, some sort of blue cast still peeked through apparently protecting her left hand. During the press tour for the first installment of the two-parter, she explained the injury. “I’d been on the sidelines for so long, just itching … So I was bursting to do it. Which is probably why I broke my thumb; I was a little overzealous,” she said about shooting her human-to-vampire transformation.
October 2011: Brace on Right Hand
Apparently, Kristen’s right hand got jealous of the left and wound up in a brace. A tweet from Max Manganello, who played a soldier in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” made everyone nervous when he tweeted, “It’s a wrap for today. Kristen has hurt herself… nothing scary.” We trusted his reassurance until two weeks later, when she was spotted wearing a brace.

Less than a month later, concerns that Kristen wouldn’t walk the red carpet at the premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” began to run rampant when rumors surfaced that she was “in pain” after hurting her foot on the set of “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Thankfully, she showed and wisely wore sneakers to greet fans and sign autographs before changing into heels for the carpet. “I hurt it just running and running around,” she explained as she showed off her healing thumbs. “I keep getting hurt.”
November 2011: Bloody Knuckles
Less than two weeks later, the now 22-year-old was spotted with some seriously banged-up knuckles. Apparently, she packs a mean punch. “I was supposed to miss him [Chris Hemsworth] by this much,” she explained on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” of shooting a battle scene in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” “I basically knocked him right out of his close-up.” Needless to say, her hand paid the price.

May 2012, Punctured Foot
Kristen showed the tell-tale sign of an injury again when she appeared wearing flats on “The Tonight Show” a little less than a year ago. “I wasn’t trying to have the ultimate swag when I walked out,” she said of her limping stroll. “I hurt my foot. I wasn’t trying to get out of wearing heels either. Puncture wound, promise!” The star had just come from Vancouver, where she’d been doing reshoots for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.”

Kristen arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote “On the Road” sporting a mysterious splint on the middle finger of her left hand. We’re pretty sure this wasn’t some sort of fake out to tell the paparazzi how she really feels about them – this did come just weeks after that whole cheating scandal came to light, after all. During interviews at the event, she would only confirm that the finger was broken, but gave no explanation as to how this happened.
February 2013: Cut Foot
And that brings us back to Stewart’s date to the Oscars on Sunday: a pair of crutches. She “cut the ball of her foot, quite severely on glass two days ago,” her makeup artist, Beau Nelson, told People, describing her as being in “a little bit of pain.” She described the incident that caused the injury to MTV with a bit more aplomb. “I’m an idiot,” she declared.
Here’s hoping that’s the last of Kristen’s injuries!
