- Anne Hathaway admits she's a little nervous about co-hosting the Oscars with James Franco. "I found out that I'm one of three women to host since... I think it was 1987," she told Entertainment Tonight on Monday at NYC's Gotham Awards. "Maybe I'm the fourth, I'm not sure. I'm still learning all the amazing statistics that I almost don't want to know because it gets a little bit too intimidating." She told the New York Post she decided to host the Oscars because, "I like a challenge. It seems like an incredibly cool and exhilarating thing to do." She admitted to The Hollywood Reporter she "can't talk about anything" about what the show will include, and quipped to ET, "They told me they would hang me by my thumbs if I said anything."
