James Franco on Howard Stern

James Franco was a guest on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show Monday and it didn’t take long before the conversation turned to Stern’s open hatred of Franco’s 2011 Oscars co-host, Anne Hathaway.

“Everyone sort of hates Anne Hathaway, and I’ve explained that I do too and I don’t even know why sometimes,” Stern explained. “She’s just so affected and 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 been written for her. And it all seems so scripted and acted.”

Franco reluctantly took the bait, warning Stern, “I’m happy to revisit this, but you’re going to have to take the lead … She does not want me talking about this, but okay.”

Anne Hathaway James Franco OscarsStern happily expressed his opinion further, adding, “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 I 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 agreed.

When Stern asked if Franco and Hathaway are friendly these days, the 34-year-old actor admitted “We haven’t talked in a while” but despite reports of a rift after the Oscars, “Anne and I made up, by the way. Let’s just get that on the record.”

“It was a really hard time after the Oscars,” Franco added. “She wasn’t mad at me, I don’t think she didn’t say she was mad at me for what happened The critics were so nasty.”

Franco also discussed his relationship with another young Hollywood starlet: Lindsay Lohan.

After Stern asked about reports that he turned down having sex with Lohan, he responded, “I don’t want to like brag about it. I don’t know how that got out.”

“She was having issues even then, so you feel weird,” Franco explained. “Honestly, she was a friend. I’ve met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes you don’t want to do that.”

Instead, Franco, who is currently dating his “Spring Breakers” co-star Ashley Benson, admitted “I’m getting older. I would like a long-term relationship.”

The couple, clearly comfortable together, made a music video this week lip-syncing to “Love You Like a Love Song ” by fellow “Spring Breaker” cast mate, Selena Gomez:
