Anne Hathaway talks about her break-up with con-man

The Superficial / September 10, 2008

Anne Hathaway has opened up about her break-up with Raffaello Follieri, an Italian businessman who conned investors by pretending to be a representative of the Vatican. While she won’t reveal if she helped the Feds (She sang like a canary), Anne talks about her life since the arrest in an interview with W Magazine:

“As soon as I found out about the arrest, I had to get on a plane to Mexico to do a press tour for Get Smart. And then I spent a week in shock at a friend’s house. And then I had to go back and do more press, and I haven’t stopped since.”…
She’s been staying at a friend’s downtown since moving out of the midtown apartment she shared with Follieri, which was searched by the authorities. “I have to find a place to live,” she says numbly. But then her voice catches with emotion and pools form at the corners of her eyes as she struggles to articulate her messy mix of feelings. “It’s a situation where the rug was pulled out from under me all of a sudden,” she says. “But just as suddenly, my friends threw another rug back under me.”

Man, I remember going through a tough break-up. You know what my friend threw under me? A knife. Of course, it was his mom I broke up with and, again, Geekologist, I’m sorry. Your mother and I are just two different people. Also the whiskey wore off and I specifically told her not to turn the lights on.
