Anne Hathaway — she of the energy that would shame the Tasmanian Devil — appeared on the Today show this morning to promote her upcoming animated film about potential bird sex, Rio. And yes, she has heard what everyone thought of her stint hosting the Oscars with James Franco. "The critics were tough," she admitted to Matt Lauer. "They said we were the worst show ever." Still, she's choosing to look on the bright side. "Then there are the people who've been coming up to me since then who stop and say, 'I thought it was fantastic. I had a great time! I watched it with my whole family and we were entertained the whole time.' Obviously, I'm very grateful to those people and I'm glad they felt that way. And then there's my memory of it ... whether it was great or whether it stunk, who knows?" Still, her diplomatic façade crumbled a bit when Lauer asked whether she'd host again: Watch as Hathaway goes from "Why not?" to "Maybe" to blurting out "No!" in the space of two seconds flat.
