Anne Hathaway: No downside to hosting Oscars

James Franco told Letterman earlier this year that his lackluster Oscars hosting job wasn’t because he was actually high, but because “the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to Anne Hathaway. She has a lot of energy!"

Hathaway, 28, tells Harper’s Bazaar in the magazine’s August issue that she doesn’t think that’s quite fair.

“How did I take it?” she begins, referring to Franco’s late night commentary. “I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we e-mailed a bit.”

Even if his remarks had been more hurtful, Hathaway insists she’s not focused on his words – or the critiques of others who sniped about the pair’s hosting.

“In the grand scheme of things, I got to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I met great people, wore beautiful clothes. And I got to put on a show,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar. “I don’t see a downside. Anyone who disliked my personality probably disliked my personality before the Oscars.”

Hathaway will star in the summer movie "One Day," due out August 19, about a couple who spend the night of their college graduation together and are shown on the same date each year following to see where they are with their lives.

As for where Hathaway is with her own romantic life - she's dating actor Adam Shulman - "so far, it's worked out great," she tells the magazine. While she at one time would get swept away by the drama and intensity of romance, Hathaway says she now has a more relaxed approach to love.

"It was exhausting, and it would sometimes freak me out," she says of her old ways. "Mellow doesn't always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life."

    Dispite her efforts to be otherwise,she is pathetic and inconsequential.One of the bunch, ... JF is not a regular Hollywood star, he has more than one college degree, has taken on many roles that most actors would run from for fear of their careers, is ardent supporter of gay rights... he's slowly becoming a legend!!!

    I like him just fine! He is fine & smart, I wouldn't throw him out of bed! I'm just saying he was high at the Oscars, but so was probably the majority of the audience. It is a party, after all! Anne Hathaway was probably the only straight person there or she'd just taken her adderol!!:)
