The actress and Franco received a lot of flak for their poor hosting duties and Hathaway, who eventually won the best actress Oscar for her role in 'Les Miserables', feels Harris will do just fine in his hosting duties, according to th New York Times.

When asked if she had some advice for the actor, Hathaway replied, "Do the opposite of what I did, and you'll be fine."

Hathaway and Franco were criticised for their lack of chemistry. Franco seemed bored the entire time while Hathaway appeared over-enthusiastic as the host.

When asked what went wrong with them, the actress said, "I think it's so obvious that it doesn't even need to be identified. He'll be great. He's a natural host."

The 2015 Academy Awards will take place on February 22.
