New York, Sept 11 : Anne Hathaway has finally opened up about her "heartbreaking" split from Raffaello Follieri, confessing that she was in 'shock' when she heard her Italian boyfriend was arrested on fraud charges.
The "Rachel Getting Married" star ditched her 30-year-old beau in June - just before his arrest for alleged wire fraud and money laundering.
"As soon as I found out about the arrest, I had to get on a plane to Mexico to do a press tour for 'Get Smart,' " the New York Daily News quoted her, as telling W magazine.
"And then I spent a week in shock at a friend's house.
"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,'" she added.
Hathaway praised her friends for their "kindness" during the tough time, adding, "not everyone gets that. A lot of people go through tough times alone."
Although she admits she's still not over the split, Hathaway says she plans to "start focusing again" in the fall.
"Right now, I need to be me for a little bit," she added.
