They say familiarity breeds contempt, and Anne Hathway and James Franco did just spend a month in close quarters rehearsing together for the Oscars. Us Magazine reports that Hathaway and Franco “grew to hate each other” during their preparations to host the Academy Awards. Another source says “She had to provide all the energy—he was just phoning it in.” Literally. He was on his phone Tweeting the whole time.
While we agree that Hathway provided all the energy, we do feel a wee bit bad that Franco is the one people are taking a crap on, since we actually liked the pre-taped bits he was in. But apparently he wasn’t thrilled with things himself, since he even bailed on his own after party. Reps for both actors deny that there’s a hate-fest, but we’ll be combing his Twitter page for any subtle digs at Hathaway’s expense.
