Anne Hathaway on hosting the Oscars again: 'Why not? I don't know. Maybe. Perhaps. No.'

Anne Hathaway Oscars news"The critics were tough," Anne Hathaway admitted to Matt Lauer on the "Today Show." "They said we were the worst show ever. I think that qualifies as tough."

The interview marked the first time that the star spoke publicly about co-hosting the Oscar ceremony with James Franco.

"I think about the Oscars as several different experiences," she added. "There was the critical reaction, which was awful. Then there are the people who have been coming up to me since then who stop and say, 'I thought it was fantastic. I watched it with my family and we were entertained.' I am very grateful to those people.

"And then there's my memory of it, which is -- whether it was great or whether it stunk -- who knows? I still got to walk out on the Kodak [stage] and see those people and someday I'll get to tell my grandkids about it."

When Lauer asked her if she'd ever consider hosting the Oscars again, she replied, "Why not? I don't know. Maybe. Perhaps. No."
