James Franco Responds to Oscar Backlash on The Late Show With David Letterman

Video: James Franco Responds to Oscar Hosting Backlash

James Franco stopped by The Late Show With David Letterman this week to promote Your Highness, but the conversation turned to Franco's performance as an Oscar host — or, more specifically, the way he was ripped to shreds the next day. Watch as Franco makes his first public response to the backlash, saying that it was Anne Hathaway's energy (not drugs) that made him look subdued and that he did the best he could. Sounds like it's still a wee bit of a sensitive subject, but check it out for yourself.
