Washington, July 4 : Anne Hathaway reportedly sought Dame Julie Andrews' advice before she finally parted ways with boyfriend Raffaello Follieri, according to reports.
The 'Devil Wears Prada' star, who rose to fame as Andrews' granddaughter in the 2001 film 'The Princess Diaries', reportedly spoke to the legendary actress before finally ending her romance with the Italian businessman.
Hathaway decided to quit the relationship because she was so distraught over the potential effects Follieri's actions could have on her career.
"Julie was a mentor to Anne early in her career and the younger actress respected her opinion and her distance from the personalities involved... In the end Julie told Anne she 'had to do what's best for her,'" Contactmusic quoted a source, as telling U.S. publication the Globe.
The 'Get Smart' star separated from Follieri last month, shortly before he was arrested on suspicion of fraud.
