Us Weekly says (that a source says) that Anne Hathaway and James Franco grew to “hate each other” as they rehearsed to host the Oscars.

“She had to provide all the energy — he was just phoning it in,” says a second insider. (“James seemed in his own little world,” during the Oscar telecast, says another source. “Producers were pissed.”)

In fact, as reported Monday, after the awards, Franco skipped his own party at L.A.’s The Writer’s Room.

“He went immediately back to NYC because he was pissed about how the show went,” adds a third source.

Franco‘s rep has another take; “This is absolutely not true.”

Hathaway‘s rep says that “Anne had a wonderful experience with him.”

So who are you going to believe?
