Anne Hathaway endures David Lettermans barbs over Follieri splitOctober 2nd, 2008 - 6:34 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 2 (ANI): Actress Anne Hathaway said that she had split with businessman Raffaello Follieri before he had been arrested for fraud, not after finding that the latter was in trouble, when she appeared on David Lettermans programme The Late Show on Tuesday night.
“We were over. The relationship was absolutely done. I was on a flight from Australia when I found out, the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
Follieri is awaiting sentencing on 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and money laundering.
He is accused of posing as the Vatican’’s representative in America, and duping investors into believing the church would sell him property at a discount.
During the show, Hathaway appeared to be cringing and laughing uncomfortably
as Letterman made fun of her ex-boyfriend.
Letterman asked her: “Was there ever stuff missing from your purse?”
Anne replied: “I don”t want to go into the specifics of it, but you do have to give me credit. As far as relationships crashing and burning go… come on. I did pretty great. I mean… scorch that earth. I”m an all or nothing girl.”
She insisted that she had already moved past her failed relationship while keeping up with her professional commitments.
She said: “I”m promoting my movies and living my life. I got to keep my dog - that’’s the really important thing. I”m in a good place.” (ANI)
