Cool Videos: James Franco takes to Letterman to address his Oscar hosting

04.01.2011

For the first time since hosting the Oscars to less than stellar reviews, James Franco addressed the situation on "The Late Show with David Letterman." Franco was ostensibly there to promote YOUR HIGHNESS but Letterman, another once-scrutinized Oscar host, got talking about the awards show with Franco.

The actor claims he wasn't stoned and that his mellow demeanor is simply a side-effect of standing next to the energetic Anne Hathaway. I'll give Franco credit because he doesn't seem to really care much what people thought about it and, as Letterman says in the clip below, why should he?

I'm not sure I buy that he wasn't stoned and I certainly agree it wasn't a fairly effective performance but I think it went off exactly how Franco wanted it to (whereas Hathaway I think was going for something completely different). Now that we're somewhat removed from the ceremony, what do you think of Franco's job hosting?

The Oscars are always boring and the hosts are rarely funny (except King Crystal). As a kid I was amazed watching it but as an adult I can't watch. 20 years ago celebrities had this secret existence that seemed so great. These days the internet and TMZ has gone to incredible lengths to ruin everything.

Franco was not a good Oscar host, but...

I'd give Hathaway another shot if she's asked back. She was somewhat descent.

Franco has a point

though it's beside the point; if you're in, get in, man. Not that I thought he was any abomination.

And Letterman is obviously happy to dismiss it as someone who bombed hosting himself. Is it that big a deal to own up to a subpar hosting job? That guy is such a classless bag of tools.

I'm calling B.S. on James Franco

At one point, they had a close-up shot of him and his eyes were red and his pupils were pin-pricks. Nothing wrong with enjoying the herb but he was stoned that night.
