Anne Hathaway's Convicted Ex 'Wanted to Marry Her'
Anne Hathaway's ex boyfriend Raffaello Follieri is speaking out about his completed U.S. prison sentence for fraud and his past romance with the Devil Wears Prada star.
"We were talking about marriage," Follieri, 33, tellsPeople magazine in an exclusive interview from his home in Rome, Italy. "I was very much in love with her." Hathaway and Follieri dated from 2004 to 2008 and their relationship became public in Hollywood.
Follieri -- who spent nearly four years in a U.S. federal prison facility after pleading guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering -- was deported to Italy last month immediately after being released from jail.
He said when he first entered prison he thought his life was over, but eventually "learned to survive by focusing on getting through one day at a time." Follieri admits making "mistakes" but tells the magazine: "I'm not a saint, but I'm not the devil."
