Could Anne & James’ feud be the REAL reason the Oscars were so terrible?
We were wondering why Anne Hathaway and James Franco had zero chemistry when they hosted the 83rd annual Academy Awards this Sunday, and now we might just have our answer: A source tells Us Weekly that Anne, 28, and James, 32, reportedly “hate each other!”
As we pointed out in our review of their hosting gig, it felt like Anne did all the work while James just kind of stood there — and it sounds like that was the exact source of tension between the two hosts!
“[Anne] had to provide all the energy — [James] was just phoning it in,” another source tells the mag. “James seemed in his own little world. … Producers were pissed.”
Though his rep denies the claim, it sounds like James wasn’t too pleased with his own performance either, as he skipped his own Oscars after-party at The Writer’s Room in Los Angeles.
“He went immediately back to NYC because he was pissed about how the show went,” says the source.
