DALLAS (AP) — As a former host of the Academy Awards, Hugh Jackman has some advice to this year's hosts: enjoy the beginning of the show and don't forget to eat.

He advises James Franco and Anne Hathaway to have fun during the first 45 minutes of the show and move things along after that.

He also says it's important to eat, remembering when he was hosting in 2009 pulling out some cookies and being surrounded by hungry actors.

Jackman made the comments Friday night while attending the Audi Forum Dallas pre-Super Bowl party. He says he thinks Franco and Hathaway will do a "great job."

Jackman, who played Wolverine in the X-Men movies, is set to be a presenter at this year's Oscars.
