Stewart was using the crutches to help balance herself after she stepped on glass. “[She] cut the ball of her foot, quite severely, on glass two days ago,” her makeup artist, Beau Nelson, tells People. She was in “a little bit of pain.”

But despite the pain, Stewart did opt to take the stage without her crutches later on in the evening to present an Oscar. And Stewart probably wasn’t complainig about the fact that she had to wear flats — she’s not really a high heels sort of gal.
