American actress Anna Hathaway She knew she was participating in a party that would be criticized no matter who watched it when she agreed to host the 83rd annual Academy Awards in 2011.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday, the 39-year-old actress played a game where she had to respond with one word to pictures from her past.
When Cohen Hathaway showed a picture “Princess Diaries” Starring on stage with James Franco, she quickly replied, “We sucked.”
The audience erupted laughing, including the “WWHL” guest. Victoria BeckhamCohen and Hathaway.
Critics loudly blasted the duo who seemed to have little to no chemistry on stage as Hathaway gave it their all, while Franco seemed detached from one another.
Hathaway previously told People magazine that Franco urged her to co-host the show with him despite her initial reservations.
In 2019, she said, “Hey, can I have some tea?
“When all the dust had settled, I was like, ‘You must be kidding me. Your first instinct is usually the right one.” And all my reasons for rejecting it came true.”
She added, “All of them. It’s just a no-win situation. You are not trained for this, how will this enhance your life? All the reasons why. Even people who do it amazingly — like Hugh Jackman, Jimmy Kimmel, and Ellen DeGeneres — usually get a “meh” from everyone. It’s really hard to keep going down.”
Several writers who worked on the show recalled the unique pairing, which was intended to appeal to younger viewers.
“It was like an uncomfortable blind date in the world between a wonderful kid rocker and a wonderful camp leader,” David Wilde told The Ringer in 2021.
Franco, who recently sparked controversy after being cast as Fidel Castro – one of his first acting roles since he was sued for sexual misconduct in 2019, He also commented briefly on the co-hosting party. In 2016, he said, “It was an experience.”
Meanwhile, although Ann apologized for her on-stage antics more than a decade ago, she was also expressing regrets to fans of “The Devil Wears Prada” on Monday.
A fan asked about Adrian Grenier’s character, who played her boyfriend in the movie, “Do you agree with fans that Nate was the real villain of The Devil Wears Prada?”
“Yes it was!” Cohen honestly agreed.
Hathaway joked before admitting that she didn’t agree. “No, I’m sorry, I don’t. I think they were just too young, and they were figuring things out.”
Hathaway’s character, Andy Sacks, attempted to navigate life while working as an assistant editor for Runway magazine, Miranda Priestley, who portrays him. Meryl Streep. Due to her hard work schedule, Andy finds that she has no time with Nate or her friends, but eventually Andy chooses the job she’s happy with in the journalism industry and leaves her bad boss (and bad relationship) behind.
“He acted like a brat, but I also acted like a brat in my twenties and I hope I’m out of it,” she told Cohen. “I guess that’s what we all do. And I don’t want to go over my worst moments in my twenties, sure, so I don’t consider Nate a villain, actually.”
Grenier told Entertainment Weekly last year during an interview for his “The Devil Wears Prada” reunion that he understood how upset fans could be about Nate’s behavior towards Andy.
“I didn’t see some of the finer details and nuances of this character and what they represented in the movie until the wisdom of the fans came online and I started pushing against the character and throwing them under the bus, and I had a blast,” he said.
“All those memes that came out were shocking to me. It didn’t even cross my mind until I really started thinking about it… In many ways, he’s so selfish and self-involved, it was all about him; he wasn’t extending himself to support Andy in her life.” professional”.
