Modern Family star Sarah Hyland made for a shaky first presenter at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards on August 16, yet managed to maintain her adorable charm, even in a state of embarrassment.
The perky 24-year-old actress was all smiles as she began to skip up the steps toward the podium to present the Teen Choice Comedian award alongside Pitch Perfect star Skylar Astin. At the top stairs, she tripped, and flew into a double recovery step across the stage, yelling “Are you f**king kidding..?!”, before covering her mouth in shock at her own expletive. “I do that sometimes, guys. I’m awkward like that, you know.” Sarah quipped, as her presenting partner backed her up, “It’s ok, it’s ok – we’re the first ones, you know what I mean?”
The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, clearly amused, was caught by cameras chuckling away at the blunder.
The doe-eyed beauty later took to Twitter to rib herself a little for social media, “You guys. I tripped. I tripped on camera. I tripped on stage in front of all you.”
Sarah then posted a pic of the precise moment of her gaffe, joking “Like a graceful swan.”
