Anne Hathaway just dissed her own Oscars presenting skills

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.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
