Actress jokes about love-split in TV interview


ANNE HATHAWAY joked about her ill-fated romance with rogue businessman RAFFAELO FOLLIERI during her appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend.

The actress hosted the comedy show, and launched straight into the topic during her opening monologue.

Referring to her beau of four years Follieri - who is awaiting sentencing on 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and money laundering - she said, "I've had a busy summer.

"I did some travelling, I've got a new movie out... and I broke up with my Italian boyfriend and two weeks later he was sent to prison for fraud. I mean, we've all been there. Am I right ladies?"

She then joked that she'd started a new relationship with an internet scam artist, "The experience made me feel pretty gullible. I was ready to swear off dating and then I met an amazing new guy.

"We met on the internet. I don't usually read letters from strangers. How often do you get an email from a Nigerian prince? He is such a sweetheart and he is pretty wealthy. He asked all about my family, and my social security number.

"Yesterday was our one month anniversary. I know it's sappy but I sent him something I knew he'd love. A mix-tape and $100,000."
