7James Franco Gets Why People Hate Anne Hathaway

We all remember when James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted the Oscars. It’s not the ceremony we remember so much as the intense backlash the pair received following their performance, which was, shall we say, less than stellar. James was stoned the whole time and Anne was, well, Anne. When all was said and done, things were left less than friendly between them – though they’ve since made up. Still, this story is not yet over.

In an interview with Howard Stern (via US Weekly), James admitted that he can see why some people find Anne a bit hard to warm to, and he kind of doesn’t blame them:

“I’m happy to revisit this, but you’re going to have to take the lead,” Franco, 34, warned Stern. “If you’re going to talk about it, you’re going to have to give your opinions . . . She does not want me talking about this, but okay.”

“Everyone sort of hates Anne Hathaway, and I’ve explained that I do too and I don’t know even know why sometimes,” Stern explained. “She’s just so affected [and] actress-y that even when she wins an award she’s out of breath, and then she has the standard joke that sounds like it’s [been] written [for her]. And it all seems so scripted and acted.”

“She comes off like the goody two-shoes actress and it’s just fun to sort of hate her,” the radio host added. “Hate is a strong word . . . but [I] dislike her, even though she is a great actress. Is that accurate?”

“I’m not an expert on — I guess they’re called ‘Hatha-haters’– but I think that’s what maybe triggers it,” Franco agreed.

“Are you still friendly with her?” Stern asked.

“We haven’t talked in a while,” the Oz the Great and Powerful actor admitted of his relationship with the now Oscar-winning actress. But he later added, “Anne and I made up, by the way. Let’s just get that on the record.”

“It was a really hard time after the Oscars,” Franco added. “She wasn’t mad at me, I don’t think . . . she didn’t say she was mad at me for what happened . . . The critics were so nasty.”

You can bet your balls she was mad at you, Franco. You ruined her big night!! It was Anne Hathaway’s special evening to dress up pretty and be a superstar and you robbed her of the experience! How very dare you.

    I’m no Franco fan (my feelings for him have been pretty much perplexing and not in a good way), but I would also have to be pretty high to do anything with Hathaway. UGH. Just UGH. I think the expression on his face in the above photo says it all.

    I am kind of over the Hatha-hate. It’s so last month. You people are making me feel sorry for her. Is that what you want? Also, Franco is still a massive knob so, there’s that.
