Anne Hathaway has always come up a little short in the man department, but this time she seems to have found a keeper. She’s engaged to marry her boyfriend, Adam Shulman. Could he be the charm?
Hathaway, 29, undoubtedly hears her baby clock ticking. But she can’t be accused of rushing into this relationship. They’ve been dating for three years.
The engagement was confirmed to UsWeekly by a rep, after Hathaway was spotted out and about recently sporting what looked like an engagement ring.
And indeed it was, crafted by Kwiat Heritage, according to the rep.
Which is odd since Shulman recently co-founded a jewelry company with jewelry designer Heidi Nahser Fink. It’s sold under the name James Banks.
The line was featured in the April 2011 issue of Lucky magazine. He is Co-founder and Co-designer of the company.
Hathaway met the actor after her four-year romance with Italian fraudster Raffaello Follieri collapsed in 2008 amid charges he defrauding investors of millions of dollars by claiming he was a real estate consultant for the Vatican in Rome.
Hathaway stuck by her man even though she had been repeatedly warned by friends that he was a shady character.
He pleaded guilty in Sept. 2008 to 14 counts of wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy and was sentenced in Manhattan federal court to four an a half years in prison.
Anne was never implicated in any of his schemes.
Shulman on the other hand seems like a solid citizen. He graduated from Ivy League Brown University with a theatre degree in 2003.
He also attended the Eugene O’Neill National Theatre Institute.
He started acting in 2005 on television, and has appeared in a few b-rated movies.
Hathaway told Harper’s Bazaar in June that she has a problem with getting involved with the wrong men, and getting wrapped up in the “intensity of romance.”
She said her relationship with Shulman was mellow and not exhausting.
“Mellow doesn’t always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life,” she said.
More recently, she suggested she was ready to settle down.
“Before, when I thought of marriage, I was afraid that I would only marry for business reasons, or because I wanted to live out a little girl’s fantasy. That’s not the case any more,” she told German magazine Gala.
Hathaway and Shulman reportedly moved in together in Brooklyn last month.
