Anne Hathaway broke up with her boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, after he was investigated by the IRS for fraud and money laundering in June 2008. At the time of his arrest, Anne was busy doing press for the movie Get Smart, and had to find a new place to live in between interviews and red carpets (the NYC apartment she shared with the Italian conman was being searched by authorities). She spoke to W magazine that year, saying, "It's a situation where the rug was pulled out from under me all of a sudden. But just as suddenly, my friends threw another rug back under me. One said, 'Go stay at my house.' And Steve Carell [her Get Smart costar] stepped up for me during an interview when someone asked a question [about it]." She added, "I've been shown such kindness. Not everyone gets that. A lot of people go through tough times alone."
Anne showed a self-awareness and sense of humor about the unfortunate situation a few years later. When asked about her "relationship deal-breakers" during a 2012 Vogue interview, the Oscar winner quipped, "Uh. . . fraud?"
