Brian Grazer I Love Brett Ratner, Just Don't Ask Me About THAT

Brian Grazer ... excited to produce the Oscars, excited Billy Crystal is hosting ... not so excited to answer questions about the comments Brett Ratner made that led to his stepping down as Oscars producer. 

Although Grazer wouldn't come to Ratner's defense, he did say he saw Brett at a wedding yesterday and had dinner with him last week.
