Anne Hathaway turns guitarist for beauJune 3rd, 2009 - 8:57 pm ICT by IANS
New York, June 3 (IANS) Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway took to the Internet to teach herself how to play the guitar so that she can serenade her boyfriend, actor Adam Shulman, on his birthday.
Using video tutorials online, she learnt to play The Beatles’ 1968 song “Blackbird” as a special birthday present for the new man in her life who celebrated his 28th birthday Tuesday.
“For my boyfriend’s birthday, I learned how to play a song for him. I’d never heard the song before and he played it for me. It’s the Beatles song ‘Blackbird’. And so I studied it for a while and then I learned how to play it,” she said in a statement released here Wednesday.
The 26-year-old also displayed her limited guitar skills on US TV when comedian-presenter Jimmy Fallon asked her to play something for the audience on his show.
“I know how to play two songs, ‘Blackbird’ and this other song. I learned this off the Internet… literally learned from YouTube lessons - how to play the guitar. I am almost done with the first one! So I learned this song, I got the chords online but I’m not very good at it,” she said.
