Hathaway: Harris is a natural host

Anne Hathaway has told this year's Oscars host, Neil Patrick Harris, to just be himself.

The How I Met Your Mother star will take centre stage at the 2015 Academy Awards on February 22. It would be his first time leading the Oscars, following his previous hosting stints at the Tony Awards and the Primetime Emmy Awards.

"He'll be great. He's a natural host," the Interstellar actress told the New York Times, adding: "Do the opposite of what I did, and you'll be fine."

The Les Miserables star received criticism after she co-hosted the ceremony with James Franco in 2011, where they spoofed the year's top films in their opening.

When asked what she thinks she did wrong, Anne said: " I think it's so obvious that it doesn't even need to be identified."

The nominees for the 87th show will be announced on January 15.
