People Is Anne Hathaway's Protector
As if you expected People magazine to turn America's Victim Anne Hathaway into a knowing party to ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri's cons. "Even as some friends say they warned Hathaway about Follieri, she stuck by him for months as allegations of his wrongdoing swirled," the magazine reports. "But when Hathaway learned that Follieri's charitable foundation was under investigation by the New York State attorney general for tax irregularities, the actress broke off the relationship. Says a pal: 'That was the last straw.'" This is beautiful, touching stuff — especially when you consider what the alternative copy could've looked like: "Hathaway was an oblivious dolt who relied on her good looks to charm her way through life. She only broke off the relationship when she realized the lavish vacations would be coming to an end and the bad press could affect her career." But that's really more Star's territory, which always enjoys a nice backyard BBQ where women are served up well-done.
I hate to admit it, but my gut instinct (as a woman) is that the latter is true with the added addendum: "He was her first sexual experience" also. And, THAT could have explained her naivite.
