"She had to provide all the energy -- he was just phoning it in," says a second insider. ("James seemed in his own little world," during the Oscar telecast, says another source. "Producers were pissed.")

In fact, as UsMagazine.com reported Monday, after the awards, Franco, 32, skipped his own party at L.A.'s The Writer's Room.

"He went immediately back to NYC because he was pissed about how the show went," adds a third source.

Franco's rep responds, "This is absolutely not true,” while Hathaway's rep says, "Anne had a wonderful experience with him."
