James Franco has admitted that he and Anne Hathaway “haven’t talked in a while” following their 2011 Academy Awards nightmare hosting job, is reporting.

The Spring Breakers   star was a guest on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show Monday where he also revealed why he thinks so many people dislike the Les Miserables actress.

From the offset, Franco told the host that Anne, 30, would not be happy he was talking about her!

“I'm happy to revisit this, but you're going to have to take the lead. If you're going to talk about it, you're going to have to give your opinions . . . She does not want me talking about this, but okay,” Franco started off.

Everyone sort of hates Anne Hathaway, and I've explained that I do too and I don't know even know why sometimes," Stern began.

“She's just so affected actress-y that even when she wins an award she's out of breath, and then she has the standard joke that sounds like it's written. And it all seems so scripted and acted.”

He continued: “She comes off like the goody two-shoes actress and it's just fun to sort of hate her. Hate is a strong word . . . but dislike her, even though she is a great actress. Is that accurate?”

“I’m not an expert on – I guess they’re called ‘Hatha-haters’ – but I think that’s what maybe triggers it,” Franco said diplomatically.

But when Stern asked if he and Hathaway are still in touch, Franco admitted: “We haven’t talked in a while.”

As previously reported, Hathaway was less than impressed by comments Franco made about her during an appearance on The Late Show   following their Oscars fiasco, comparing her to a “Tasmanian devil.”

“I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil.  I called him, and we emailed a bit,” Hathaway said during an interview with Harpers Bazaar   in 2011. “In the grand scheme of things, I got to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  I met great people, wore beautiful clothes. And I got to put on a show. I don’t see a downside.  Anyone who disliked my personality probably disliked my personality before the Oscars."

However, despite their frosty relationship, Franco was quick to say the two have made amends.

“Anne and I made up, by the way. Let's just get that on the record,” he insisted.
