SOUNDBITE (English) Anne Hathaway, actress, on the challenges of landing an Oscars host:"It's not that it's just how hard it is to get up in front of everybody and do it. There's so much work leading up to it: You have to shoot promos, you have to be a part of writing the entire show. And the Oscars, themselves, are just so huge and they've got so much history. And it's not the Golden Globes, where you can be a little irreverent and be a little drunk and you can curse. There's a sense of occasion to it. And we're living in a time right now where people don't take kindly to a sense of occasion, or anybody who self-aggrandizes, or any of those things. But there is something in the DNA of the Oscars that is about that. So, I think it's going through a moment of growing pains. And I do understand why people don't want to take it on."
