Mario Sorrenti for W Magazine
Anne Hathaway has had a devil of a time coping with both her split from longtime boyfriend Raffaello Follieri and the drama surrounding his arrest on charges of wire fraud and money laundering.
And for the first time since all of it went down back in June, the 25-year-old actress is speaking out.
"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," says Anne in the October issue of W magazine. "And then I spent a week in shock at a friend's house."
Yet, Anne seems to be pulling through, thanks, in large part, to the people who have "shown such kindness" during her ordeal.
"It's a situation where the rug was pulled out from under me all of a sudden," Anne says. "But just as suddenly, my friends threw another rug back under me. One said, 'Go stay at my house.' And Steve Carell [her Get Smart costar] stepped up for me during an interview when someone asked a question [about it]. He said, 'At some point you're going to have to talk about this time in your life. You don't have to do it this week. I'll take care of anything that comes your way.' "
"Not everyone gets that," she adds, slightly teary-eyed. "A lot of people go through tough times alone."
