Anne Hathaway - The word "survivor" this year.

Anne HathawayAnne HathawayAnne Hathaway is one of some of the ones who defined the word "survivor" this year.

A-list Anne Hathaway has been a star on the rise since The Devil Wears Prada opposite Meryl Streep catapulted her into the superstar realm in 2006.

Unfortunately, Hathaway' relationship with longtime boyfriend Rafaello Follieri didn't follow the same track. The Italian real estate developer, whom Hathaway had dated since 2004, was arrested in June of this year for reportedly fleecing investors out of millions of dollars in a fraud scheme.

Anne Hathaway, knowing that Follieri was under investigation by the Feds, broke up with him in the same month. Anne's diaries were also seized as evidence by the authorities. "It's a situation where the rug was pulled out from under me all of a sudden. But just as suddenly, my friends threw another rug back under me. One said, 'Go stay at my house.' " Hathaway later said about the break-up. Follieri went to jail, and she is reportedly dating again, being linked with both Josh Lucas and actor Adam Shulman.

So Hathaway bounced back. Let's just hope that she insists on total honesty in a relationship from now on...

Anne Hathaway - Ex admits to £2.4m fraud

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway - Her ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri was imprisoned in a scam case. He has admitted to a fraud of over 2.4 million pounds.

Anne Hathaway' ex was sentenced to four-and-a-half year in jail after pleading guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering earlier this year, reports the Daily Express.

Raffaello Follieri’s prosecutors filed legal papers in NY on Dec 15, in which they claimed that Raffaello has agreed to pay restitution of 1.3 million pounds to the Toronto-based company Dundee Realty Corp.

Raffaello'll also be paying 542,000 pounds to Yucaipa Corporate Initiatives Fund and 26,666 pounds to an Atlantic City monsignor.

Raffaello Follieri was arrested in June (08), just 2 weeks after Anne Hathaway ended their 4 years romance.

Is Anne Hathaway the most beautiful woman ever?

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway is very pretty!

She is very beautiful woman.

Anne is defiantly beautiful but she isn't the most beautiful because there are plenty of gorgeous women and no one woman should be above the rest.

So...Anne Hathaway is very pretty but to call her the most beautifulest woman ever would be a stretch. would say she is one of the more beautiful current actors and leave it at that.


Anne Hathaway - Split from her love

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway Post Break-Up: ‘It’s Not Part Of My Life Anymore’ - She split from her love of five years — the now-incarcerated Raffaello Follieri – this past June. And although Anne’s talked about the split in the 6 months that have passed, She has now revealed to Vogue’s January issue that Hathaway realized her relationship with the Italian was over long before the Feds came knocking.

“I was a 21-year-old kid when I met him,” Anne Hathaway told the mag. “It wasn’t a huge, dramatic breakup. We were in the process of winding it down when he was arrested. I don’t talk about this, except when I’m asked. It’s not a part of my life anymore.”

As previously reported on, Anne Hathaway ex was sentenced to 54 months in prison in October, after pleading guilty to 14 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering.

Now Hathaway says that the fallout from what happened with Raffaello has created a burden on her shoulders.

“It’s a complicated situation that has the ability to define me in ways I am not comfortable with,” Anne Hathaway said.

Moving on hasn’t been an easy road, something She seemed to indicate when Vogue accompanied her on a recent shopping trip. As Hathaway browsed through some casual clothing in London’s famous retailer Top Shop (after revealing she had thrown out items previously associated with her ex), Anne was hit with the realization that post-Raffaello life was different for her.

Hathaway said. “This is harder than I thought,” “I haven’t done this yet. I don’t know how I want to look when I lounge around.”

But things are looking up for the star these days. In addition to the films she’s currently promoting – including this fall’s “Rachel Getting Married” (for which she has significant Oscar buzz) and the upcoming “Bride Wars” — Anne has been enjoying some music on the side. She says she’s been listening to a lot of Death Cab For Cutie and TV On The Radio.

Anne said. “After my breakup happened, I thought, ‘Concerts until the end of the year,’”

Anne Hathaway - The victims of Italian con man Raffaello Follieri won a $3.7 million judgment

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway ex Raffaello Follieri news - The victims of Raffaello Follieri (Italian con man) won a $3.7 million judgment against Follieri Monday - but whether they will ever actually collect is far fr clear.

Raffaello is serving a four and a half year prison sentence 4 bilking investors by claiming to have an inside track on Vatican property. He appears to be in a world of financial hurt: Follieri recently sold off two Andy Warhol prints for $21,000 just to pay Follieri' legal tab.

Raffaello Follieri used to date "Rachel Getting Married" actress Anne Hathaway. Among those due money from Raffaello are two Catholic priests who say they loaned Follieri about $180,000.

William Hodge, Atlantic City Msgr, He'll get $40,000 & George Tomichek, Philadelphia Msgr. He'll get $20,000, according to a letter filed by federal prosecutors Monday.

The payout represents about one-third of what each victim claims to be owed.

Raffaello Follieri - the 30-year-old playboy - financier admitted using other people's money to bankroll a swank Fifth Ave. apartment as well as private jets to fly Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway off to exotic spots across the globe.

The biggest chunk - $2 million - will go to Dundee Realty of Toronto, run by Bill Clinton supporter Michael Cooper.

Dundee dumped millions into a Follieri venture to buy up church property in Canada.

Yucaipa Corporate Initiatives Fund, run by Clinton confidant Ron Burkle, is to get $813,000.

Hodge's attorney William Hughes says he agreed to the deal in the hopes of recovering at least a portion of the $110,000 left Follieri by his parents.

Follieri duped Hodge into turning over the cash by claiming he needed it to reimburse nuns working out of his Manhattan offices. Hodge met Follieri while Follieri was attempting to buy up unused church land in Atlantic City.

Several other alleged victims of Follieri's swindle, including business partner Nicholas Mastronardi, have pending claims.

Opinion on Anne Hathaway?

Anne Hathaway Actress Snaps comI Like Anne Hathaway, because
Hathaway's an amazing actress, really pretty, one great actress, a good actress. I liked her (without actually knowing her), but the more I've read about her as a person I don't really care for her. I will still watch her movies though.

My friend say..
Anne Hathaway hasn't done any really big movie that has caught my attention, but she is not a bad actress.

So Neutral. Hatahaway's a good actress with a really good fashion sense. On the other hand she is reportedly very insecure with herself and loved her con boyfriend until he got put in jail. I hate the hyprocrisy of Anne jetting around the world with this man and saying how in love with him she was and then dumping him as soon as he gets caught. Granted, what he did was very wrong, but she was living a lavish life with him until he got caught.

Anne Hathaway's new beau an opportunist?

Anne Hathaway's new beau an opportunist?After Anne Hathaway splitting from fraud Raffaello Follieri, who is now behind bars, she has reportedly moved on to another social climber.

Anne Hathaway star was spotted vacationing with Adam Shulman. An insider said that Shulman is not much of an improvement from Follieri. "Adam is known as an opportunist," the New York Post quoted an insider, as saying.

"When he was at Brown (University), he went after all the heiresses. It's like Anne is addicted to losers,” the insider added.

However, Shulman’s representative made no comments on the issue.

Btw, anyone agree that Anna Hathaway is so pretty?
Hathaway so natural, and doesn't wear that much make up. I think shes way prettier then some girls in the spotlight

Anne is pretty with or without makeup. and hathaway's quite a good artist. almost never hear a bad gossip about her too...I agree 100%. And Hathaway is very grounded as well. You never hear anything negative about her which is nice.

Anne Hathaway no stunning beauty. She was great in the Princess Diaries. She seems to be really grounded and has a good head on her shoulders and keeps out of the spotlight and her private life private

But Anne Hathaway' eyes are a little to big for me and it reminds me of a bug... and I cant stand her teeth, sory dont know why??


Anne Hathaway and Rosemarie DeWitt's

Anne HathawayDeWitt's Rachel is the somewhat uptight older sister of Anne Hathaway's Kym, who is a bit of a loose cannon. We find out when Kym is brought home from her latest stint in rehab in order to be present for the weekend leading up to Rachel's wedding, a tumultuous period in which long-suppressed conflicts, issues and tragedies from the family’s past rise to the surface.

Rosemarie DeWitt is best known for her work on stage and television, she is currently at the center of growing Oscar buzz for her supporting performance as the title character in a big screen production, Jonathan Demme's critically-acclaimed "Rachel Getting Married."

How Rosemarie DeWitt and Anne Hathaway decided to conduct their relationship off-screen, in consideration of their relationship on it...

"We had one dinner beforehand, and I think we were already starting to inhabit our characters a bit, and it was very polite and nice. And then I think our instincts were to not become buddy-buddy — sometimes that works, you know, sometimes you need that to be able to finish each other's sentences — but I think we would have been in danger of maybe diffusing the necessary tension between these two women. So we sort of just maybe had a little bit of chat in the morning before we started and then, you know, I had my iPod in probably for the rest of the day."

Anne Hathaway is new it-girl of Hollywood

Anne Hathaway'Rachel Getting Married' gave Anne Hathaway a huge boost. She is getting Oscar buzz for Hathaway turn as an addict in “Rachel Getting Married.”

At the moment much of Hollywood is chattering about pretty Anne Hathaway, another dark-eyed, dark-haired beauty, who was plucked out of relative obscurity by Roberts' own star-maker, "Pretty Woman" director Garry Marshall.

Anne Hathaway has finally been transformed into the it-girl of the moment, with a string of commercial hits to her name, and heat fueled by her unexpected but thoroughly wrenching performance as an addict on furlough from rehab for her sister's wedding in "Rachel Getting Married." Already, Hathaway is getting Oscar buzz.

And Hathaway's getting the sympathy vote. Ironically enough, there's often nothing that endears a star to her audience more than love's travails, a bad boyfriend or two.

Anne Hathaway has also deftly managed the media circus. Although it-girls inevitably magnetize attention, it's not every starlet who's forced to explain herself to such august pop culture pashas as David Letterman, who recently grilled Hathaway about her personal life.

-A peasant girl and you can wear a dress with a corset bodice and you could wear an apron

Anne Hathaway : It hurts to watch Rachel Getting Married

Anne Hathaway Hottest It hurts to watch Rachel Getting Married because it captures, better than any film of recent vintage, the wild emotional undulations of life in a dysfunctional family.

It hurts to watch Rachel Getting Married because addicts are inevitably selfish, and movies about them are inevitably claustrophobic.

It hurts to watch Rachel Getting Married because Anne Hathaway is rawer, bluer, meaner, truer, more broken than you've ever seen her — than you've ever seen just about anyone portraying a lost soul in recovery.

It hurts to watch Rachel Getting Married because Bill Irwin, the actor playing her father, seems to split down the middle as we watch. It hurts because Rosemarie DeWitt, as the Rachel getting married, conveys without an ounce of malice the outrage and exhaustion of loving someone who's so far off from normal. And it hurts because our joy at seeing the warm, familiar face of Debra Winger turns to shock when her calibrated performance — as a detached mater familias — abruptly kicks into hellfire-spitting fury.


Does anyone else hate Anne Hathaway?

Anne HathawayAnne HathawayI think Anne Hathaway is so gross! I literally can't stand seeing her on TV. A commercial of Anne's came on for some perfume and my stomach turned. She is just nasty.

Anne Hathaway has a huge horse mouth. She is just gross. I am not saying that Hathaway is not a sweet girl, she probably is, I just hate when people try portray her as a sexy actress. She has a very awkward look about her.

Right on crazy. That is EXACTLY what I was saying. I never said Anne Hathaway could not act, or that she is a mean person. I don't personally know her, Im simply talking about having to look at her, and having her pushed on me as a sexy actress when she is clearly NOT

Most people are talking about her character...sure, she's sweet, succesful, humble, more down to earth than most hollywood actresses...

But when it comes to Anne hathaway's looks, I totally agree. Anne Hathaway has a very awkward presence. Looking at her, I am not sure whether she's pretty or ugly, something about her looks weird.

And i can not agree more, portraying her as sexy is just wrong. She might be portrayed as a lot of things, but sexy is not one of them...


Anne Hathaway: Personal life

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway enjoys interior design and reading as pastimes. Hathaway has cited Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged as her favorite novels, as well as Jane Austen's Persuasion Anne Hathaway is a firm believer in education and has stated that if she were a princess like her breakthrough character, she would "make it mandatory that all six-year-olds know how to read." She enjoys music and has stated that she is a fan of a wide variety of music, from Judy Garland to Rilo Kiley to Blonde Redhead. Perhaps most of all, Anne Hathaway has a strong love of film and has credited the 1958 film Auntie Mame starring Rosalind Russell with her decision to become a professional actress. Anne Hathaway calls Audrey Hepburn, Meryl Streep, and Julia Roberts her favorite movie stars, and says even she is easily starstruck. She is also a self-proclaimed Steve Carrell fan and adores TV's The Office'.

Anne Hathaway has stated that she isn't in the entertainment industry to be famous, but simply because she loves to create.

In early 2007, Anna Hathaway spoke of her experiences with depression during her teenage years, and said that she eventually overcame the disorder without medication.

In regard to personal strife and subsequent media attention, Hathaway's self-subscribed mantra is a quote by Oscar Wilde: "The less said about life's sores the better."

Anna Hathaway has said that not much is stated about her personal life because she has problems being open in interviews, but is "learning."

Anne Hathaway is involved with the Lolipop Theater Network, a program that screens films to critically ill children. In 2008, she hosted a special screening of Get Smart for teenagers, and has also shown The Devil Wears Prada. She is also involved with St. Jude events, as well as the Human Rights Campaign and the StepUp Women's Network.

In 2004, Anna Hathaway began a relationship with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri. During their relationship, Hathaway took part in the development of the charitable Follieri Foundation, serving as a financial donor as well as a member of the foundation's board of directors for an undisclosed amount of time. A Manhattan-based charity founded in 2003 focusing on programs such as providing vaccinations for children in Third-World nations, the organization had come under investigation in early June 2008 by the IRS, reportedly for failing to file tax papers required from non-profit organizations. Citing the fear that this and other ongoing legal issues involving Follieri would become detrimental to her acting career, as well as for her own ethical reasons, Hathaway ended her relationship with Follieri in mid-June 2008.

On June 24, 2008, Follieri was arrested on fraud charges for allegedly fleecing investors out of millions of dollars in a scheme involving purchasing Catholic properties in the U.S. for re-development. The FBI alleged that he posed as a financial representative of the Vatican and had duped people into investing in his fraudulent fund as recently as May 2008. Court papers state that Hathaway was an unwitting beneficiary of the stolen money which had in large part paid for Follieri's opulent lifestyle of jet-setting, shopping sprees and fine dining. On July 24, 2008, it was reported that the FBI had confiscated Hathaway's private journals from Follieri's New York City apartment as part of their ongoing investigation into Follieri's activities.

Currently, She is not facing any charges in regards to the allegations brought against either Follieri or the Follieri Foundation, and has reportedly cut off all contact with him.

For the October 2008 issue of W Magazine, Anne Hathaway spoke for the first time of the break-up. She related that she "spent a week in shock" after the arrest of Follieri, and credited the kindness of friends to her ability to keep working during such difficult times.

On a recent appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman she stated that she had stopped smoking after what she described was a "stressful summer."

Anne Hathaway: 2005–present: Career transition

Anna Hathaway and The Devil Wears PradaAnne Hathaway began appearing in more dramatic roles after The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. Hathaway said that "anybody who was a role model for children needs a reprieve", although she also noted that "it's lovely to think that my audience is growing up with me", a reference to her previous status as a children's actress. She voiced a version of Little Red Riding Hood in Hoodwinked! (2005), which received generally mixed reviews. That same year, Hathaway was cast in the R-rated Havoc (2005), in which she played a spoiled socialite. In a surprise move, Hathaway was featured in several nude and sexual scenes throughout the film. Despite the content of the movie being radically different from her previous films, Hathaway has denied that her role in the film was a blatant attempt to be seen as more of an adult actress, citing her belief that doing nudity in certain movies is merely a part of what her chosen form of art demands of her, and because of that belief she does not consider appearing nude in the appropriate films to be morally objectionable.

After Havoc, Anne Hathaway appeared in the drama Brokeback Mountain (2005), opposite Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, in a role that further displayed a more serious side of Hathaway. Havoc was not released in theaters in the United States (but was later released in other countries) because of its weak critical reception, but Brokeback Mountain won rave reviews for its depiction of a homosexual relationship in the 1960s, and received several Academy Award nominations. Anne Hathaway would later assert that the content of Brokeback Mountain was more important than its award count and also stated that making the film made her more aware of the kind of stories she wanted to tell as an actress.

Her next film was The Devil Wears Prada (2006), in which she starred as an assistant to a powerful fashion magazine editor (Meryl Streep, whom Hathaway described as being "just divine"). Hathaway said that working on the film earned her respect in the fashion industry, but she claims that her personal style is something she "can't get right" and instead prefers "doing the things she loves."

In an interview with Us Weekly, Hathaway spoke about her weight loss for the film. "I basically stuck with fruit, vegetables and fish (to slim down for the movie). I wouldn’t recommend that. Emily Blunt and I would clutch at each other and cry because we were so hungry."

Hathaway was initially cast in the 2007 comedy Knocked Up but dropped out before filming began and was replaced by Katherine Heigl. Writer/director Judd Apatow stated in a May 2007 issue of The New York Times Magazine that Hathaway dropped out "because she didn't want to allow us to use real footage of a woman giving birth to create the illusion that she is giving birth." In an August 2008 interview with Marie Claire magazine, Hathaway commented, "I turned down another movie [Knocked Up] because it was going to show a vagina — not mine, but somebody else's — and I didn't believe that it was necessary to the story."

Anne Hathaway was next seen in Becoming Jane, was released in mid-2007, in which Hathaway stars as English writer Jane Austen.

Tim Burton considered Hathaway for the part of Johanna in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, but in the end the role was given to Jayne Wisener, a then-unknown actress, reportedly because Burton decided he wanted an unknown actress for the part.

Anne Hathaway's first film of 2008 was a modern adaptation of the 1960s Mel Brooks television series "Get Smart", in which she starred opposite Steve Carell, Dwayne Johnson, and Alan Arkin. The film was a hit at the box office and received mostly positive reviews, prompting talk of a sequel. She also made a cameo appearance in the spin-off film Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd: Out of Control. In October 2008 she will star in the drama Passengers, alongside Patrick Wilson. She has recently completed the drama Rachel Getting Married, opposite Debra Winger. The film premiered at the 2008 Venice Film Festival to wide acclaim. Hathaway's dark role as a recovering drug addict has already generated Oscar buzz, with the Hollywood Reporter declaring, "An award-worthy Anne Hathaway gives the story a clear central focus." Rival trade publication Variety called her "fragile, angry, superb".

Anne Hathaway: 1999–2004: Career development

Anne Hathaway in Black dressAnne Hathaway starred in the 1999 FOX television series Get Real for one season, after which it was canceled. Hathaway's first filmed role in a motion picture was as Jean Sabin in The Other Side of Heaven (2001) opposite Christopher Gorham. Before production of Heaven began in New Zealand, she auditioned for the lead role of Mia Thermopolis in the Garry Marshall-directed The Princess Diaries (2001). Hathaway auditioned for the role during a flight layover on the way to New Zealand and won the role after only one audition. Marshall claimed that he loved her immediately because she fell off her chair during the audition and believed her clumsiness would make her perfect for the role. (However, in a 2008 conversation with Steve Carell, Hathaway denied that she fell during this audition, although she openly admits to being a "klutz".) The Princess Diaries was released before The Other Side of Heaven in the hopes that its success would increase interest in Heaven. Across the world, The Princess Diaries was a commercial success and a sequel was planned shortly after. Many critics praised Hathaway's performance in Diaries; a BBC critic noted that "Hathaway shines in the title role and generates great chemistry." The Other Side of Heaven was received weakly by critics, but it performed well for a religious-themed film.

Then In February 2002, Anne Hathaway made her Broadway debut opposite Brian Mitchell in the City Center Encores! production of Carnival! She received positive reviews for her portrayal of Lili; the role demanded both acting and singing and was a continuation of her success as a comic actress.

Anne Hathaway continued to appear in family-oriented films over the next three years and subsequently became known in mainstream media as a children's role model. In 2002, she appeared in Nicholas Nickleby (2002) opposite Charlie Hunnam and Jamie Bell, which opened to positive reviews; the Northwest Herald referred to it as "an unbelievably fun film" and the Deseret News said that the cast was "Oscar-worthy." Despite critical acclaim, the film never entered wide release and failed at the North American box office, totaling less than US$4 million in ticket sales.

Her next film role was as the titular character in Ella Enchanted (2004), the film adaptation of the award-winning novel, which opened to mostly indifferent reviews. Anna Hathaway sang two songs in the film as well as two on the soundtrack, subsequently prompting questions of whether she planned to release an album in the future, to which Hathaway jokingly responded, "I have no desire for world domination through the pop charts."

At last, in 2004 Anna Hathaway was set to star opposite Gerard Butler in The Phantom of the Opera, but was forced to turn down the role due to the movie having a production schedule that overlapped with that of The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, which she was contractually obligated to make. Disney began production on The Princess Diaries 2 in early 2004 and it was released in August of that year. The film opened to negative reviews, but still managed to peak higher at the box office than its predecessor, commissioning $95.1 million against a $40 million budget.
