There's no doubt Anne Hathaway is a talented actress, but even she's had a hard time concealing her excitement about the new man in her life. "I happened to meet a sexy guy the other day," she divulged at the Oct. 20 London premiere of her new movie, Rachel Getting Married. "You know when you don't know someone very well...you just meet them and you're like, 'Wow, you really have it going on'?" As it turns out, the object of Anne's affection thinks the actress has it going on, too. Now Life & Style can exclusively reveal his identity: 27-year-old actor Adam Shulman.
Life & Style recently spotted the happy new couple in New Orleans, where Adam accompanied Anne, 26, to an Oct. 29 screening of her movie at the Canal Place Cinema, then to dessert with pals at local hot spot Patois. At the screening, Adam, unassuming in jeans and Converse sneakers, told Life & Style how he and Anne first met: "We met through mutual friends. I came to support Anne. We've never been to New Orleans before -- it's our first time."
At Patois, where the couple sipped white wine and Anne picked off Adam's plate, the star said things with Adam weren't perfect at first. "He was actually seeing someone else," she told the table while resting her hand on Adam's leg, says a witness. "I thought I was going to have to step back."
"Adam's everything Raffaello wasn't," an insider close to the actress tells Life & Style, referring to ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri. "He's sensitive and kind to a fault. I think Anne may have found a kindred spirit."
