Her Ex May Be The Criminal, But Anne Hathaway Is The ‘Bad Guy’

Posted by Clem Bastow on July 2, 2008

If you’re a regular reader of the Hollywood gossip sites, you would’ve been following the unfolding tale of Get Smart star Anne Hathaway’s recent ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri’s fraud charges; he allegedly scammed investors in the States with a US$6 million property scam.

The Feds are now on Follieri’s case, but the blogosphere and the gossip columns seem to be more concerned with painting Hathaway in a dark light for apparently tattling on her man, flinging about jibes like “never trust a dame” and this corker from The Age‘s syndicated BANG! piece: “Did Anne dob in her man?”

A friend of Follieri speculated to the New York Daily News newspaper: “It makes sense. Hathaway is referred to as his former girlfriend in the FBI indictment even though her spokesman never confirmed they broke up.

So hang on, what was she supposed to do? Play Goody Hathaway and keep the Feds occupied with a slice of freshly baked apple pie while Raff hopped out the back window and into a getaway car?
