Splitting from her boyfriend of four years Raffaello Follieri, she doesn't rule out dating other men yet avoids dating any of her co-stars as she thinks "it makes life easier."
Just like the title of her latest big screen movie "Get Smart," Anne Hathaway also tries to get smart in living her life, both on screen and off screen. And while her acting attainment has been approved by many, she's struggling to get through her recent break up with longtime boyfriend Raffaello Follieri.
In an interview with Britain's The Independent, the movie beauty discusses her career in movie business, her broken relationship with real estate developer Follieri, and how it affects her career. Learning her lesson from their failed romance, she quoted 1920's humorist Will Rogers as saying, "The worst thing that happens to you can be the best thing for you, if you don't let it get the best of you."
Speaking of getting back into the dating scene, Hathaway revealed "I don't say no to anybody because I'd hope that people wouldn't say no to me just because I'm an actor - but they'd have to be pretty extraordinary." Yet she ruled out dating any of her co-stars, about which she explained "I try not to date where I work. It makes life easier."
She, in the meantime, is looking for someone "you can be yourself around, who makes you laugh, who challenges you in a good way, and where you just spark off each other." And believing in everlasting love, she admitted to be looking up to her parents who're still together after years of marriage.
"My parents have been married more than 25 years, with all the glory and the pain you can imagine, but they've stayed together. I want a strong marriage like that," so she said when referring to her mother and father as her role models to build a strong union.
And while she's waiting in anticipation for the release of her action-comedy flick "Get Smart" in the U.K. on August 22, her ex-boyfriend Follieri currently is staying in prison in the U.S., awaiting trial on a number counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.
