Howard Stern didn't have to do much arm-twisting to get James Franco to discuss why people feel such strong anti-Anne Hathaway sentiments these days. "She does not want me talking about this, but OK," said Franco, asking Stern to "take the lead" in the conversation about his 2011 Oscar co-host.
"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," said Stern.
"I'm not an expert on -- I guess they're called 'Hatha-haters'-- but I think that's what maybe triggers it," Franco agreed, adding that "Anne and I made up," after the pair got slammed for their hosting performance. "It was a really hard time after the Oscars," he continued. "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."
