Oscar-nominee and Emmy winner Anne Hathaway is off the market. The actress, who just wrapped filming her role as Catwoman alongside Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight,” has found her own knight and she is preparing to let the wedding bells ring. Her rep, Stephen Huvane, confirmed to several media outlets that Hathaway and her longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman are engaged.
The official announcement comes on the heels of several photos of the couple, which captured Anne and Adam taking a walk in the park over the weekend in Brooklyn, with Anne wearing an engagement ring. The actress’ rep confirmed that Adam, who began dating Anne three years ago, has finally popped the big question and the actress of course accepted to give him her hand in marriage at some point in the near future. Adam – a 30-year-old actor/jewelry designer – gave her his total support following the former “Princess Diaries” star’s highly publicized and dramatic breakup with Raffaello Follieri. Their relationship ended after Follieri pled guilty to 14 counts of defrauding investors of millions of dollars when he posed as a real-estate consultant for the Vatican, money laundering and wire fraud. “I hate talking about the breakup because I don’t want it to define me, but as is to be expected, there were a lot of lingering trust issues,” she told Vogue last year of the scandalous split.
Fortunately, after five months, Adam, who knew her for a while, showed her again how it feels to be in love. “We hit it off immediately, but it took us a pretty long time to get together. Things sped up a bit [when I realized we were both single] – and I think I’ll leave it at that. I am very much in love with him, [only] Adam totally ruined my plan, I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!” Hathaway told Us Weekly.
The 29-year-old actress, who is mostly known for her roles in the 2010 films – “Valentine’s Day”, “Alice In Wonderland”, “Love And Other Drugs”, in the 2007 film “Becoming Jane”, 2006 film “The Devil Wears Prada,” the 2005 film “Brokeback Mountain”, 2004 “Ella Enchanted” and many more, said about her relationship with Adam that is low-key. “Mellow doesn’t always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life,” she said. Besides, Hathaway told the German magazine Gala that she saw herself having a married life with Adam, saying, “I can definitely imagine that, yes. Before, when I thought of marriage, I was afraid that I would only marry for business reasons or because I wanted to live out a little girl’s fantasy. That’s not the case anymore.”
Moreover, according to E! News, the engagement ring was designed by Adam in collaboration with Kwiat Heritage jewels. Unfortunately, the couple didn’t say anything about the upcoming wedding so word has it that the happy couple will have to postpone their plans for a wedding as Hathaway will be very busy playing Fantine in the Tom Hooper film, “Les Misérables.”
