James Franco's pals bash Anne Hathaway

James Franco's best friends still blame Anne Hathaway for his disastrous performance at the 2011 Oscars.

The 30-year-old 'Les Miserables' actress was the butt of numerous jokes made by Seth Rogen, Jeffrey Ross, Nick Kroll, Jonah Hill and Sarah Silverman at a Comedy Central Roast for the 'Oz: The Great & Powerful' actor, which saw the comedians take turns to publicly mock James' career choices and ambiguous sexuality on Monday night (09.02.13).

During the show, Seth, who starred in 'Pineapple Express' with James, quipped: "Look at me doing all the talking while you sit there doing nothing. I feel like I'm co-hosting the Oscars with you."

Nick later added: "James, honestly, what happened with you and Hathaway? Did you guys f**k? You know what, you're a gentleman, you don't have to answer that. Just squint once if yes. If anyone bombs here tonight they're just doing an impression of James Franco at the Oscars."

While Jeffrey said: "You never really said what was going on that [Oscar] night, man . . . You were like Billy Crystal-meth. You were a worse host than the AIDS monkey. The academy should have known when you combined Anne Hathaway and James Franco you get Anne Franco, which makes sense since you should have gone into hiding after that. Face it, Franco, you and Anne Hathaway had the comedic chemistry of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman."

James appeared slightly uncomfortable during some of the jokes and said: "This is truly my punishment for the Oscars."

The actor, who has regularly attracted the wrath of critics since hosting the prestigious ceremony, previously claimed he could take any criticism.

He said: "Criticism can sting but not for long. At this point I've heard it all, good and bad. I can take anything."
