Actress Anne Hathaway, who saw her film Get Smart debut at #1 at the box office last weekend, has not been implicated in the charges against her ex-boyfriend, Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri.
Follieri has been arrested on charges of wire fraud and money laundering, according to Manhattan prosecutors. Apparently, Follieri represented himself to a potential investor as the manager of the Vatican's financial affairs, claiming that he could obtain Catholic Church properties in America at a discount.
Hathaway's publicist leapt into damage control mode, insisting that the actress is not a part of the investigation into her ex's dirty dealings and that she is no longer on the board of Follieri Foundation, a supposed charity that works to provide vaccinations to children in third world countries. Hathaway and Follieri dated for four years, from 2004 up until last week. Looks like Miss Hathaway abandoned ship and "[got] smart" at just the right moment.
