  • Anne Hathaway may not have walked the Oscars red carpet this year, but that didn’t stop her from reflecting on her 2011 presenting gig with James Franco, and basically dissing herself.

    If you cast your mind back to that year, you’ll remember the frankly awkward performance, which was widely panned,  thanks to Anne being over the top to compensate for James’ lack of energy.

    She posted a shot of the pair on Instagram, joking that, ‘No matter what happens with today’s show, just remember, it’s already been worse. Happy Oscars!’

    The actress was no doubt referring to the controversy around the lack of presenters at this year’s Oscars, after Kevin Hart backed out following homophobic comments.

    Recalling her Oscars disaster, Anne told PEOPLE, ‘He didn’t give me anything. God, I just remember the night before we’re about to go up there, and me turning to everyone and going, “Am I too much? This feels really big to me.” And the producer just went, “No! Don’t do less. Do more if you need to.” And I was like, “Oh okay, I guess it’s going great.” And I didn’t realize what was happening about that whole thing.

    Onwards and upwards as they say.
