Remember the Oscars this year? Yeah, we try to block them out too, but humor us and venture back for a tick. Remember how stoned James Franco was and how mad-crazy excited Anne Hathaway was? And do you remember how people said they were like the worst Oscar hosts in the history of the gig? Okay, great, stay with us on this.
Not too long after that, James was on Late Night with Letterman and confessed that the reason he looked so down was because Anne was so up. He compared her to "Tasmanian devil" and suggested her wild performance was what made his look so bland. In essence, he blamed her high-energy performance for making him look bad.
When asked about this in the new Harper's Bazaar, Anne reveals that she wasn't too pleased that Franco took a jab at her and she let him know that right away. She explains:
"How did I take it? I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more ﬂattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we emailed a bit."
Oh, would we have loved to be CCed in those emails! Damn!
She's Catwoman now, you know! Bet those claws were OUT! Meow!
