James made a video for the ‘Freaks and Geeks’ reunion at the PaleyFest and poked fun at Anne and their Oscar hosting gig!
James Franco took the opportunity to prove he has a sense of humor about his less than well received Oscar hosting gig in his latest video, and also managed to mock cohost Anne Hathaway! The actor made a tape to play at PaleyFest for the Freaks and Geeks panel he was unable to attend, and appeared onscreen with an IPad displaying the face of Anne. Huh?
It turns out James jokingly told the audience that he and Anne were busy getting ready to host the Emmy Awards, NAACP Awards and the ESPYs — hence his absence. Anne’s face sat motionless until the end when James put it up to the camera and announced, in a mock Anne voice, that her critically panned flick Love & Other Drugs was out on DVD. Ouch!
Reports following the Oscars claimed that Anne and James were not just unable to work together, but actually hated one another! If that’s the case, this video definitely seems like it was meant to make fun of Anne!
