As the worst hosts in Oscars’ history, James Franco and Anne Hathaway are now pointing fingers. Oooh, rich white people drama! Us Magazine reports:
A source tells Us Weekly that Anne Hathaway, 28, and James Franco grew to “hate each other” as they rehearsed to host the Oscars Feb. 27. “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.”) In fact, as UsMagazine.com reported Monday, after the awards, Franco, 32, skipped his own party at L.A.’s The Writer’s Room. “He went immediately back to NYC because he was pissed about how the show went,” adds a third source. Franco’s rep responds, “This is absolutely not true,” while Hathaway’s rep says, “Anne had a wonderful experience with him.”
James Franco was “phoning it in” and “seemed in his own little world” because it was obvious to everyone at 8:31pm that he had just smoked a PODS full of weed. And it was painfully made aware that Anne Hathaway is only tolerable when she’s topless. I think it’s clear at this point that Charlie Sheen needs to be the next Oscar host. Does Hugh Jackman have a mercury surfboard? Is Billy Crystal made of tiger’s blood? Can Chris Rock cure alcoholism with his mind? No? Then what the fuck are we waiting on?
