Anne Hathaway braves the rain in New York… after Oscar writers dished about her VERY awkward 2011 hosting gig opposite James Franco

Anne Hathaway didn’t mind the rain while out walking in NYC on Wednesday.

The star’s outing came after Oscar writers David Wild, Jordan Rubin and Bruce Villanch talked about the star’s very awkward hosting experience opposite James Franco in 2011, calling it ‘like the world’s most uncomfortable blind date’ in an interview with The Ringer.

Writer David Wild revealed that his first reaction upon hearing that Franco and Hathaway would host was, ‘Huh?’ in his head, when a production executive told him. 

‘The one thing you learn in life, is that you have to react and address something as it’s happening. You’ve got to listen to that voice, or else,’ he said.

The opening monologue with the hosts immediately showed their contrasting styles, Hathaway all smiles and a bundle of energy, while Franco was busy recording the audience as he walked on stage.

‘It was like the world’s most uncomfortable blind date between the cool rocker stoner kid and the adorable theater camp cheerleader,’ Wild added.

‘She showed up ready to play and committed 110 percent and he was a great guy but often looked like he had just woken up from a nap,’ added Jordan Rubin.

‘It’s almost like you’re showing up to a tennis court and one person decided that they were going to play in the U.S. Open and the other wanted to play in jeans and just kind of hit a few balls,’ he continued.

The show was put on blast by critics from the start, with The Hollywood Reporter saying, ‘it could go down as one of the worst Oscar telecasts in history.’

Wild, who has written for live event telecasts for over 20 years, said, ‘I call it an incredibly dark significant comic event in my life.

Villanch, an awards show legend who has written for over 25 Oscar telecasts, added bluntly, ‘I think its legacy is floating somewhere near the Costa Concordia,’ the Italian cruise ship that ran aground and sank off the coast of Tuscany in 2012, killing 32.
