But on Feb. 27, don't expect Franco and Hathaway to pull any Ricky Gervais-like stunts. When asked if Hathaway would insert a few snide comments, she told THR:

    "I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts. I think that humor is really difficult to pull off, and I’m not particularly adept at it. I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it. 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."

We cant wait to see the pair host the Oscars Feb. 27. We bet they'll be a refreshing change.
