Hugh, who emceed the Academy Awards in 2009, says you have to have remember to eat something before (or during) the show.
"It's a long show," the X-Men star told me at last night's Audi Forum Dallas, "I actually took out cookies during one of the commercial breaks because I had a note from my wife saying 'You're doing a great job' and I was really hungry. So we had some cookies and I got mobbed! You've never seen anything like it. All these A-list actors just mobbing for me chocolate chip cookies."
And while Hugh definitely urges James and Anne to eat something, how about having a few drinks before they take the stage?
