James Franco says he was not under the influence of drugs on Oscar night -- he only wishes he had been.
The actor dropped by Late Show with David Letterman to discuss the backlash he's experienced from co-hosting this year's Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. (His appearance will air Friday.) Letterman, who emceed the show in 1995, was all sympathy.
"It was horrible," Letterman said. "Yes, I can't even remember what it was. It was horrible. I was so bad that they talked for a while about shutting down the motion picture industry."
"But they didn't say you were stoned," Franco replied, adding that Hathaway was "so energetic. I think the Tasmanian Devil would looked stoned standing next to [her]."
