Poor Anne Hathaway. The girl with the spotless Hollywood reputation was just a tad too trusting, and now her love life's been smashed to pieces in front of the whole world.
Anne is People magazine's main focus this week, as friends of the actress say that she was just blinded by her love for alleged con man Raffaello Follieri, never really seeing the shady business he was involved in. "You can say what you want about it, but we just love each other," Anne had told the mag back in 2006, of her relationship.
"She's a sweet girl, and he seemed like the right kind of guy," says a friend of Anne's said. "At the end of the day, could she tell you that he was a dirty dealer? No way."
Raffaello was arrested last month, just after he and Anne split, on charges of wire-fraud conspiracy and money laundering. Sources say once she heard that his charitable foundation was under investigation by the New York State attorney general for tax irregularities, Anne bailed. "That was the last straw."
Let's look ahead and match Anne up with one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors. She's 25 -- who would be a good match? Someone mature, with their head on straight -- a do-gooder. Suggestions?
