James Franco Hits Back At Bruce Vilanch For OSCAR Comments!

By on 22 March, 2011



Actor James Franco has hit back at Bruce Vilanch after the long-time Oscars writer criticised his Academy Awards hosting turn last month (February 2011)!


The ‘Spider-Man‘ star teamed up with Anne Hathaway to present the lavish Hollywood ceremony, but the young stars’ gig was poorly received by critics and audiences alike.

Vilanch recently suggested that Franco‘s busy schedule kept him from performing well, telling NY Magazine‘s Vulture Blog:

“He has so many balls in the air, he didn’t get to town till Thursday before the show on Sunday. And so we emailed a lot… But he didn’t get there.”


Fuming Franco has now hit back at Vilanch by taking to his Twitter page and writing:

“Bruce he let me down”.


He also posted a photograph of himself and Vilanch upon which he wrote in pink graffiti:

“James f**ked up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler!”


Franco later removed the posts, and it now appears that he has made his peace with Vilanch.


Don’t you just love happy endings?
