It didn’t work out, but Anne Hathaway at least tried to be good at hosting the Academy Awards on Sunday night, she at least failed with enthusiasm, which is more than can be said for James Franco.
Franco told Vanity Fair that he didn’t care if he turned out to be a bad host, if it was “the worst Oscars show ever,” then proved it by rocking back and forth and mumbling for 4 hours. He even skipped his own after party and instead went directly to the airport and flew to New York (much to the surprise of people like Seth Rogen and Kevin Spacey).
Suffice to say that Anne saw this coming.
A source tells Us Weekly that Anne Hathaway, 28, and James Franco grew to “hate each other” as they rehearsed to host the Oscars.
“She had to provide all the energy — he was just phoning it in,” says a second insider.
“James seemed in his own little world,” during the Oscar telecast, says another source. “Producers were pissed.”
Anne is the one who really should be pissed. She should have taken his dick and slammed it in a book after the first commercial break, or put some cigarettes out on it to wake that stoner up.
