Seriously? The 2011 Oscar co-hosts should probably hate each other after one of the biggest fiascos in Hollywood history. But, does Anne Hathaway really hate James Franco? And vice-versa?
James seemed to be too high to even care about what was happening and to understand how big his responsibilities at the event were. Anne basically had to make all the heavy lifting – she tried too damn hard to be funny and failed miserably. She is not a comedienne.
“She had to provide all the energy — he was just phoning it in,” says a second insider. “James seemed in his own little world. Producers were pissed.”
After the show, the 32 year-old actor skipped his own Oscars after-party at The Writer’s Room in Los Angeles and went straight back to New York (WHY?). A source said, “He went immediately back to NYC because he was pissed about how the show went.”
Anne’s rep denies such claims, saying, “This is absolutely not true. Anne had a wonderful experience with him.” Of course, she did. Anne cannot say James basically ruined her big night. Or didn’t he?
James and Anne do not hate each other. They should. But they don’t. HELLO! Anne offered James a very intimate sweet hand massage backstage during the show (video below). What female would have been capable of not just cutting it off if she really hated him? I know, Anne is a good actress!
