Anne Hathaway"No matter what happens with today's show just remember it's already been worse

Ahead the hostless 91st Academy Awards, Anne Hathaway reminded us that the ceremony probably couldn't be worse than that time she and James Franco hosted in 2011.

Anne Hathaway is being a good sport about her widely criticized 2011 Oscars hosting gig.

And while the actress doesn't necessarily regret the hosting gig, she wished she had stuck to her guns.

Anne, 36, shared a picture of herself on stage with Franco - who had his eyes closed for some inexplicable reason - to Instagram and wrote: 'No matter what happens with today's show, just remember, it's already been worse.

When Hathaway and Franco emceed the ceremony, critics were not kind, describing the show as "cringe-worthy" and a string of other insults.

"That's the spirit, girl!" one fan exclaimed.

Hathaway, who won best supporting actress for her role in "Les Miserables" in 2013, recently discussed the difficulties she encountered while hosting Hollywood's biggest event. This feels really big to me.' And the producer just went, 'No! And I was like, "Oh okay, I guess it's going great". You're not trained at this, how is this going to enhance your life?

In the end, Hathaway said she learned to trust her instincts.

"When all the dust settled, I was just like, "You gotta be kidding me". "I turned that gig down, and James is the one that convinced me to do it". All of them. It's just a no-win situation.
