Anne Hathaway split from her love of five years — the now-incarcerated Raffaello Follieri – this past June. And although she’s talked about the split in the six months that have passed, Anne has now revealed to Vogue’s January issue that she 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 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 AccessHollywood.com, her ex was sentenced to 54 months in prison in October, after pleading guilty to 14 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering.
Now Anne 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,” she said.
Moving on hasn’t been an easy road, something Anne seemed to indicate when Vogue accompanied her on a recent shopping trip. As she 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.
“This is harder than I thought,” she said. “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.
“After my breakup happened, I thought, ‘Concerts until the end of the year,’” she said.
