Talk about a red carpet! The Oscars are Hollywood’s most glamorous event, but the award show could have been far from glamorous for some. These starlets had their periods during the Oscars. Meaning their uterine lining was actively shedding as they mingled with some of the most famous people in the world. Feminist win!
  1. Jennifer Lawrence
    That’s right—you may not have noticed but America’s favorite uncensored sweetie was popping Advil like you wouldn’t believe last night, at the most prestigious award ceremony in Hollywood. Good thing she didn’t trip, otherwise we all would have seen her tampy string!
  2. Brie Larson
    For a first-time nominee, Brie Larson sure was good at hiding her period! Fun fact: Jacob Tremblay, who plays her son in Room, carried tampons for her in his pockets during the whole ceremony! What a remarkable kid!
  3. Cate Blanchett
    Cate is a seasoned Oscar menstruator. Many don’t know that when she was accepting her award for Blue Jasmine in 2014 she was actually worrying about whether or not her pad had leaked during the program. This year she continued her proud menstrual streak, attending the awards on an unusually heavy fourth day. Bow down to the period queen!
  4. Rooney Mara
    Of course Rooney had her period; the stars of Carol are still synced up due to their intimate shooting schedule. Even though her dad was a co-owner of the New York Giants, she still can’t escape nature’s monthly feminine gift.
  5. Saoirse Ronan
    Even the Irish get periods! The cute star of Brooklyn was bleeding from her vagina all night. Saoirse’s tampon did leak, but it was onto the already red carpet so thankfully no one noticed.
  6. Rachel McAdams
    Rachel McAdams was nominated for her work playing a tireless investigative reporter in Spotlight. So we got the investigative report on her flow. It was mostly light, as hers usually is by Day 3. But what with all the nerves, she still suffered from intense abdominal cramps. Good job keeping a smile on, Rachel!
  7. Kate Winslet
    Kate Winslet is sheer elegance to many, but her vagina was anything but at the Oscars! Winslet spent the commercial breaks emptying her diva cup in the bathroom of the world-famous Dolby Theater.
  8. Jennifer Jason Leigh
    This nominee was on the Hateful 8th day of her period. Yup. It was a long week for Jennifer, since she just switched birth control pills and her body is reportedly “freaking out”. If you think Quentin Tarantino’s movies are bloody, check out Jennifer’s period! After a seven full days of bleeding, Day 8 was very light, but she still wore a panty liner, just to be safe.
  9. If nothing else, this proves that movie stars are just like us! They get their periods! If Kate Winslet can survive an interview with Ryan Seacrest while trying not to double over in abdominal pain, you can do anything.
