Los Angeles: Actress Anne Hathaway, who hosted the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, has faith that Neil Patrick Harris will do a wonderful job this year. She even has some tips for him.

"He'll be great. He's a natural host," Hathaway said of Harris in an interview with The New York Times, reports people.com.

Sharing her advice for him, she said: "Do the opposite of what I did, and you'll be fine."

Hathaway and co-host James Franco received criticism for their 2011 Oscar performance, especially their opening, where they spoofed the year's top movies.

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

Harris will hosts the 87th Academy Awards, to be held Feb 22.
