Anne Hathaway radiates in red on the cover of Vogue’s November issue where the A-list actress opens up about her ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, who plead guilty to wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy in 2008, as well as the new leading man in her life Adam Shulman.
“Gosh, I hate talking about the breakup, because I don’t want it to define me, but as is to be expected, there were a lot of lingering trust issues,” Anne admits to Vogue, via PopEater.
“I was a wreck from start to finish. I think I cried every single day,” she reveals. “I had to lean so much more heavily on everyone around me than I’m used to. I’m used to pulling my own weight. But I totally fell apart.”
With her painful past relationship behind her, Anne can focus on fostering her new love for boyfriend Adam Shulman.
“We hit it off immediately, but it took us a pretty long time to get together,” she shares. “He thought that I had a boyfriend, and I thought that he had a girlfriend, so I thought that I’d better keep my distance because I didn’t want to be that girl.”
Anne is gearing up to promote her latest flick Love and Other Drugs, where she stars opposite heartthrob Jake Gyllenhaal as a young woman with early onset of Parkinson’s disease.
“I tried not to like the script as much as I did, because it scared me. What if it becomes a melodrama? What if the audience doesn’t find these challenging characters charming? There were so many things that could possibly go wrong with it,” she explains.
Anne also strips down in the film, revealing, “These are people who have no trouble taking their clothes off — in a way, their bodies are their currency … But they’re terrified of exposing their vulnerability, of becoming emotionally naked.”
