Anne Hathaway has shown her range on film, starring in everything from Disney movies to smaller dramas, but when it comes to the Oscars the actress thinks she just doesn't have the skills.
Hathaway told CNN Monday that she doesn’t see herself hosting the Academy Awards again after her much-criticized appearance with James Franco at this year’s ceremony.
“Not that it wasn’t fun, I had a great time and it was an honor and it was lovely," the 28-year-old star said. "But, it’s something that…requires a skill set...I mean, I think the first time I didn’t put any pressure on myself to knock it out of the park with, you know, my hosting skills because how would I have any? I’ve never hosted anything.”
But, she goes on, "if I were to do it again there’s a lot of things that you have to put in place in order to deliver a really, really great, well crafted show that requires a lot of time and talent that I’m not entirely sure that I have.”
Fans anticipating “The Dark Knight Rises” are hoping that she’ll bring the talents she does have to the screen as Selina Kyle, although the still photo released last week has some skeptical about how her character is shaping up.
"What I am happy to say is, if you didn't like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do," she told MTV News of reaction to the costume. "And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste."
Hathaway's latest, the romantic drama "One Day," opens in theaters August 19.
