"Hugh, there’s something we’ve never talked about, and I think we need to clear the air," Hathaway says. "You set me up badly when you asked me to appear at the Oscars that you hosted because you made it seem easy, and it’s really, really not."
She continued, "You did such an amazing job and you were so chill at rehearsals, and you just made everything seem like it was so much fun. When it came around, and they asked me to do it, I was like, 'I want to be like Hugh. Yeah, I’ll give it a go.' How could you? How could you set me up like that?"

Jackman laughed in response, "Oh, stop it. Stop. Come on."
"By the way, I remember visiting you backstage before you hosted and you were having just so much fun," Jackman told Hathaway. "I was like, I was not this calm and relaxed under me but you’re showing me, 'Look at all these costumes I get to wear.' You remember?"
The actress replied, "I was focusing on the parts of the show that I knew worked. You know how sometimes your optimism tips into delusion and you’re just like, 'If I’m just really, really nice to everybody, everything’s going to work out.' It did not work in that case, but I’m so happy that 50% of the people on this conversation did a really good job hosting the Oscars."
