Unlike other award ceremony hosts, Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway won't be poking fun of celebrities while she is co-anchoring the Academy Awards because she feels she hasn't "earned the right" to do so.
The 28-year-old actress is set to co-host the ceremony with James Franco on Sunday but says she wouldn't feel comfortable mocking the nominees and other guests, TheHollywoodReporter said.
"I can guarantee that if you're looking for someone to call people out, we're not your hosts. I think that humour is really difficult to pull off, and I'm not particularly adept at it. I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it," said Hathaway.
"Also, I don't mean to sound overly serious, but I am the youngest host in history and I have no business being cynical or calling anyone out. I certainly haven't earned the right to do that," she said.The Devil Wears Prada star also admitted she only accepted the hosting role after Franco was on board because he eased some of her fears about presenting such a huge live show.
"James is so brave and so willing to make unconventional choices. All the ways I was worried about it going wrong, it wouldn't go wrong in any of those ways. It could go wrong in entirely new ways."
The 83rd Academy Awards will take place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
