Anne Hathaway has found her not-so-dark knight: She is engaged to longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman.
The actress' rep confirmed that the couple, who began dating in 2008, are engaged after Hathaway was spotted sporting an engagement ring over the weekend in Brooklyn, People magazine reports. Meanwhile, E! News reports that Shulman designed the bling with Kwiat Heritage jewels.
Hathaway, who just wrapped filming her role as Catwoman alongside Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight," began dating Shulman shortly after her breakup with Raffaello Follieri, who was found guilty of defrauding investors of millions of dollars when he posed as a real-estate consultant for the Vatican.
"I hate talking about the breakup because I don't want it to define me, but as is to be expected, there were a lot of lingering trust issues," Hathaway told Vogue of the highly publicized breakup.
But she has been open about her warmer feelings for her soon-to-be husband. "I am very much in love with him, [only] Adam totally ruined my plan," Hathaway explained of falling for Shulman so shortly after her split from Follieri. "I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!"
Us Weekly reports that Hathaway and Shulman knew each other for a while before dating. "We hit it off immediately, but it took us a pretty long time to get together. Things sped up a bit [when I realized we were both single] — and I think I'll leave it at that."
While her last relationship made headlines, Hathaway described this one as much lower-key. "Mellow doesn't always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life," she said.
