A-listers Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence took to the stage together at the Oscars to present the award for best actress, and our first thought was, "This duo rocks." Aside from wondering why Jodie Foster was on crutches, however, we were left with another burning question: how tall is she?! Next to a heels-wearing Jennifer Lawrence, Jodie looked almost staggeringly shorter. People on Twitter were buzzing out of pure curiosity, wondering if JLaw is really that tall or if they've simply never noticed Jodie's height before.

Jodie Foster is 5'3", and Jennifer Lawrence is 5'9", so the difference isn't quite as dramatic as it seemed. The actresses' shoes clearly made their height difference seem bigger as they stood side by side at the podium. Now that that's settled, let's talk about something more important — Frances McDormand's empowering acceptance speech.
