Anne Hathaway has spoken at length to USA Today about her situation with her ex-fiance, Raffaello Follieri. The star has until now kept a relatively dignified silence about the scandal surrounding their breakup… but now the girl has a movie to promote damn it.
Hathaway split with her former beau, after it was revealed that he peed with the toilet door open and snored… ok well maybe not, but the relationship problems of the average non-celeb can’t even compare to the off-the-scale F*CKERY that was Follieri’s arrested for fraud and money laundering (for which he was later sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison).
According to USA Today newspaper:
“I started making fun of it around my friends and family and also to let everyone know it was okay to be struggling with it, as well. If I can find humour in it, that means I’m going to be okay. If something happens to me that I can’t laugh about, look out, there goes my soul.
“As horrible as what I went through was, it’s not the worst thing that could happen to a person. In the history of humanity, it doesn’t even come close.
“But I was talking to someone the other day and said, ‘There’ve been a lot of lessons, maybe not quite enough life’.”
Hathaway says that she is determined to learn from the traumatic events of 2008 and will now ask a guy if he snores BEFORE getting engaged to him:
“I’d say this is the year (08) that I began to learn how to love, if anything. Going forward, it’s just crying all the time because I love everybody so much. It’s profound, and life-altering, and glorious.
“People who knew me and loved me best, like my parents, always respected my desire to be independent. But I couldn’t get by this year being independent. There’s merit in the lone-wolf, go-it-alone, follow-your-own-drummer thing, but I think I was taking it a little too far. And I got knocked on my (butt) this year in a big way.”
