There is at LEAST once a week that we're thanking the powers that be for Howard Stern!!
It seems like he's just automatically the kind of person that can get any info from someone, like James Franco for instance. He's been pretty tight-lipped about his Oscar hosting flop. Leave it to Howard to get him talkin'!
"I'm happy to revisit this, but you're going to have to take the lead. She does not want me to talk about this, but OK."
The she in that sentence? ANNE HATHAWAY!
So Stern replies:
"She comes off like the goody-two-shoe actress…It's fun to hate her even though she is a great actress…Is that accurate?"
Daaaaaaaamn!!! Here's how Franco responded:
"Yeah, I'm not an expert on Hatha-haters but I think maybe that's what triggers it. I'm going to have to read a bunch of quotes of like, ‘Oh, James is still talking about the Oscars!' You guys are the ones that initiated it."
True true, but it was such a massive flop that we're pretty sure everyone wants to get to the bottom of it to make sure it never happens again! LOLz!
In the end though, the whole experience hasn't left James anti-Oscar, as he wouldn't mind winning one some day:
"Sure. It's great to be recognized and it's great to be recognized by your peers, but the situation you get into when you're an Oscar hopeful, it's like running for office…but there's no ticket to run on."
Who wouldn't want to win an Oscar, though? LOLz! We'd take one!!
We're glad he was actually really reserved when it came to talking about the night in question, too! Respectful!
