Although her performance with co-host James Franco was blasted, Anne Hathway revealed that she loved the experience of working with him on Oscar night.

She claimed that she found the experience 'pure joy from beginning to end.'

'I had a blast. I kept waiting to become nervous. Everyone kept asking me, ''Are you nervous?" 'The whole ride from beginning to end was joy, pure joy,' the Contactmusic quoted her as telling Oprah Winfrey.

It was 'fun to play off [James] with our two different energies,' she added.

Hathway's co-host James Franco apparently didn't share her feelings. He reportedly skipped his own Oscar party after the ceremony.

The 127 Hours star, who received a critical drubbing for his performance alongside Hathaway, had planned to throw an exclusive party at the Supper Club in Los Angeles after the ceremony. Instead, he left the city.

A source revealed while some stars like Seth Rogen, Kevin Spacey and actors from the TV show 90210 were in attendance, the party went 'bust'.

The 32-year-old actor, who is studying at Yale and New York Universities, later explained on Twitter that he had to return to his classes.

'Goodbye LA. It was fun! Time to head back to class,' Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have sparked off speculation once again by showing up together at Vanity Fair's post-Oscar bash.

The pair has always denied romance rumours but even matched their outfits for the party. Gomez wore a floor-length red dress by Dolce and Gabbana, and Bieber was dressed in a black tux with a red pocket-handkerchief.

The couple looked comfortable, as they posed with their arms around each other before the party, held at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, reports People Magazine.

As the night went on, the pals shared shots on Twitter, showing Gomez sitting close to Bieber with her hand resting on his knee.

Charlie Sheen: CBS should lick my feet

Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen has said that CBS owes him an apology and that they should do it while licking his feet.

In an interview with NBC's Today and RadarOnline.com, Sheen, 45, who looked thin, pale and sickly, said that CBS executives are 'trying to destroy' his family.

'The war is that they're trying to destroy my family. I take great umbrage about that, and defeat is not an option,' Fox News quoted him as telling Today.

'They picked a fight with a warlock. They're trying to take all my money and leave me with no means to support my family. It's not rocket science,' he said.

He declared that he did not owe CBS any apology, and that instead they were the ones who owed him one, as well as a raise because, at $1.8 million an episode, he is 'underpaid'.

'They owe me an apology while licking my feet,' he stated, before adding that he wants $3 million before he would consider returning to the sets.

Bosses of the hit series pulled the plug on the current season after Sheen's headline-grabbing personal issues and his public rants against writer Chuck Lorre.

'I'm not angry, I'm passionate. Everybody thinks I should be begging for my job back and I'm just gonna forewarn them that's gonna be everyone else that's gonna be begging me for their jobs back. I'm a man of my word, I'll finish the TV show, I'll even do season 10 but at this point because of psychological distress I want 3 million dollars an episode, take it or leave it,' the Daily Star quoted Sheen as telling NBC host Jeff Rosen.

"Look at what I've been through. (I make) roughly (2 million dollars) now. I'm underpaid right now, for sure. If you look at the money that (the producers) are making yeah, it's ridiculous. I'm tired of pretending I'm not special," he added.
