"What is Anne Hathaway - who's beautiful - possibly doing with someone like that? " - a staff writer at The Hollywood Gossip

This valid question from one of our site's senior writers is regarding the great Raffaello Follieri, the actress' possible white-collar-criminal beau.

New York State Attorney General Andrew Andrew Cuomo is investigating a children's charity operated by Follieri, the New York Post reports.

Hathaway, A.

In recent weeks, Cuomo's investigators served subpoenas seeking financial documents from the Follieri Foundation - headed by Raffaello Follieri, 29, a real estate magnate and longtime boyfriend of Hathaway.

The AG's office refused to reveal why it was eyeing the charity, but the probe came after Cuomo's office was asked whether it was aware that the foundation might have failed to file requisite tax-disclosure forms.

A check of an online database that collects "990" IRS forms showed that the Follieri Foundation is required to file the form, yet has never done so.

Anne Hathaway served on the foundation's board until at least last year, when she traveled to Central America along with Raffaello Follieri - who has already been arrested in April for an unrelated shady business deal - for a charity program.

"She was on the board, but is no longer," Hathaway's spokesman said. "I don't remember exactly when she ceased to be a board member."

Asked if Anne Hathaway - who stars as Agent 99 in the new movie Get Smart, knew about the probe, the spokesman did not comment.

The boy-toy of Hollywood glamor girl Anne Hathaway, Raffaello Follieri, is entangled in another lawsuit, according to the New York Post.

This is potentially worse than those rather sexual photos in which Anne Hathaway apparently went to town on Raffaello Follieri while on a yacht.

According to the N.Y. Post, the D.C.-based media firm the Carmen Group is suing Follieri for $300,000, reports the Legal Times, after the Italian real estate mogul hired the company to handle his public relations in the wake of a suit brought against him by L.A.-based Yucaipa Companies in May.

The Carmen Group claims the boyfriend of Anne Hathaway never paid a $25,000 per month fee. Follieri's rep denied the accusation, stating "The Carmen Group worked with the Follieri Group for one month and were paid for one month."

Either way, it looks like Raffaello Follieri is up to no good... and we're not just talking about getting serviced by Anne Hathaway on board a ship this time.

Anne Hathaway is far from innocent.

None other than Anne Hathaway herself likes to mention this fact.

And while you'd think her naked, oral sex turn in the movie Havoc would prove to fans just how down and dirty this actress likes to get, the following photos take it another step. We're talking about some possible Antonella Barba action here.

At first - similar to Monika Jakisic and George Clooney - it appears as though Hathaway and boyfriend Raffaello Follieri are just having fun on a yacht.

And then, well, it appears as though Hathaway and boyfriend Raffaello Follieri are REALLY having fun on a yacht.

We already know that Anne Hathaway nude scenes could be on the way in future movies and that this young star has no problem taking her clothes off. But we had no idea she was such an exhibitionist! If she weren't so busy holding her hair back, perhaps Anne would notice a guy sleeping right beside her!

This could be nothing more than snuggling, of course. But does Follieri's expression looks like a man relaxing or climaxing? We're just sayin.

Meanwhile, Amy Alexandra and Olivia Mojica will be sending Hathaway some major props if a dirty deed is actually taking place in this picture.

With a new movie coming out (Becoming Jane), Anne Hathaway is all over the place. And given the actress' considerable talents, deservedly so.

This month she's on the cover of Teen Vogue (taking the baton from cover girls / interns Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port), as well in Marie Claire. See below.

We love Anne Hathaway. Apparently magazines do too.

Given that Anne Hathaway's career started with wholesome roles in The Princess Diaries and the like, her decision to go topless in Brokeback Mountain ignited even more controversy than the fact that the lead characters are actually sheep herders - and the film is ubiquitously known as a "cowboy movie." Amazing.

After following that up with a brilliant turn as Andy Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada, it's clear that Hathaway has earned her place among Hollywood's elite.

Raffaello Follieri, you are one lucky man.

Attention, anorexic waifs of the entertainment world: you're on notice.

No, Stephen Colbert is not involved. Someone a hell of a lot more attractive is calling you out. No offense, Steve.

In The Devil Wears Prada, the main character, fashion intern Andy Sachs, is told she is fat because she wears a size six.

But the awesome actress who played her, Anne Hathaway, is not about to get caught up in trying to be thinner.

"Obsessing about weight is a big old waste of time," the 24-year-old Anne tells the British edition of Glamour in its April issue.

"It's completely understandable as a teenager to fret about your body," she said. "It's scary because you don't know how it's going to wind up. But I'm not a teenager any more; my body's chosen its shape. I'd rather be strong than skinny for most roles."

We'd say we hope that Nicole Richie and Mischa Barton are reading this, but it's hard to peruse the Internet when your head's inside a toilet.

For her part, Hathaway, who has battled depression in the past, admits she's not a size zero and that she's gotten flak for it from directors. But it doesn't phase her.

"'I've had directors say to me, 'You're the best actress for the role, but you've put on weight recently.' If people can't understand you've put on five pounds, I don't want to deal with them."

THG NOTE: We would love to rip Kate Bosworth here, but recent evidence suggests she may have also come to this realization.

Hathaway last year had to lose weight for her Prada role, telling reporters at a press conference in Venice that not eating that extra croissant was "a question of how much you're willing to commit."

The actress, who is transformed from frump to fabulous in both Prada and The Princess Diaries, jokes to Glamour that she is "the makeover queen of my generation."

"My entire career's been dependent on my ability to look unattractive," she says.

When you look at these Anne Hathaway pictures, you realize what an amazing feat that is.

Despite a sweet, wholesome and down-to-earth image, Anne Hathaway says she has - believe it or not - behaved badly in the past.

In fact, she draws comparisons between herself and another Hollywood Gossip staple (and drunken, horny, frequently troubled waif).

"You know, Lindsay Lohan and I have a lot more in common than people think," Anne says in an interview with the UK's The Sunday Times.

"We've all done things we shouldn't, it's just I did stuff at college, when nobody knew about it, so I'm not a saint," Hathaway said.

The Devil Wears Prada actress says of Lohan, who entered rehab last month:

"Lindsay's a nice girl, I like her a lot, and she's a great actor, but there's a fascination about her lifestyle that distracts from her talents. I just hope she finds some comfort in the way she chooses to live."

But according to Hathaway, 24, she went through her own hard-partying phase and she's not interested in doing the whole train wreck thing again.

"I wasted time doing self-destructive things but it didn't work. I found out you can only dance on so many tabletops. I got that all out of my system and now I'm healthy and I'm grounded.

"I had to work through some sh!t in my personal life," Hathaway explains. "I wasn't ready to be a serious actress, with all that entails, because I still had a lot of questions about myself as a human being."

We're guessing Britney Spears could relate, if she were sober enough to make out the words on this world wide web page.

Hathaway, who recently admitted she battled depression, says her turnaround came about three years ago, when she met her boyfriend, property developer Raffaello Follieri.

"He's brought out so many positive attributes," she said.

"Before I met him, I wasted so much time. I was just annoying and narcissistic and smelled bad. He's protective without being possessive, passionate without needing to show his temper."

Anne Hathaway smelled bad?
Who knew. We'll tell you one thing, though - from the looks of these Anne Hathaway pictures, she never looked bad.

Anne Hathaway says she suffered from anxiety and depression in her teens, but that she rejected medication and instead worked through her troubles.

"I said to Mom the other day, 'Do you remember that girl? She has now gone, gone to sleep. She has said her piece and she is gone,'" Hathaway tells Britain's Tatler magazine.

"But then I thought, 'I so remember her, only she is no longer part of me.'"

The stunning and talented star of Brokeback Mountain and The Devil Wears Prada, who is active with charitable work, regrets that she caused her family so much anxiety.

"I am sorry she was hurting for so long. It's all so negatively narcissistic to be so consumed with self."

The actress is the latest celebrity to discuss depression recently, joining Mandy Moore and her ex-boyfriend, Zach Braff.

Next up, Hathaway will star as Jane Austen in the movie Becoming Jane. Why play the legendary author? Because of one of her idols, Emma Thompson.

"I was having doubts," she said. "But then I met Emma, who asked me what I was doing. I couldn't tell her I was not going to play Jane Austen. So I just did it."

Hathaway, who's been dating real estate developer Raffaello Follieri, 27, for three years, lives in New York City - because she can't live in Los Angeles. Why?

"I am too pale and I don't drive," she said.

The actress does have a fair complexion, as these Anne Hathaway pictures illustrate. We'll allow her to live anywhere as long as she keeps making movies.

At The Hollywood Gossip, we tend to gear our postings towards celebrity news, rumors and the like. Nothing makes us happier than the ongoing Tara Conner drama, the latest Britney Spears pictures detailing the escapades of America's favorite train wreck, or a random paternity suit filed against Mel Gibson.

But sometimes, we have to post things just because. Even if they aren't really news. Most recently, we paid tribute to Eva Longoria in this fashion. This time, we have a pair of Anne Hathaway pictures that we came across. Taken from the new issue of Vanity Fair, they were simply too outstanding to pass up. So enjoy... just because.

Oh, Dear!

It's nice to see a photo spread of someone like Anne Hathaway, who, in addition to being so unspeakably, naturally beautiful, has actual talent. Shocking, we know. Essentially, she's the polar opposite of Ashlee Simpson, and we look forward to more films featuring her (not to mention magazine articles).

There was some naked Anne Hathaway in Brokeback Mountain. And some more in Havoc.

Still, the beautiful actress has found it necessary to make sure NO ONE out there mistakes her for nude-o-phobe, Owen Wilson.

So pay attention, fans. Hathaway is just fine losing her clothes, as the actress recently was quoted as emphasizing:

I grew up studying classic painters. They certainly didn't shy away from nudes. I don't find anything morally reprehensible about it. I think it is different to pose in a pair of hotpants on the cover of Stuff magazine. That's something I'm just not interested in doing.

Can someone please pass that line of reasoning along to Jessica Alba? And George Clooney. We know how much the women love him.

Anne Hathaway has joined the swelling ranks of celebrity do-gooders, the New York Daily News reports.

The likable Devil Wears Prada star traveled to Nicaragua this week to lend a hand with a vaccination program for kids.

"Hepatitis A is actually becoming a huge problem in Nicaragua. This has been an eye-opener for me. Even if I weren't an actress, I'd do it just to help," Hathaway said.

Hathaway, 23, reportedly made the trip at the request of her boyfriend, real estate executive Raffaello Follieri, whose charitable organization is behind the vaccinations.

"I was given the gift of being a successful actress, and I feel like I should use my voice," she said.

Anne gained widespread recognition for her starring roles in The Princess Diaries and its sequel, playing a teenage girl who discovers that she is a member of royalty.

She branched out in 2005 with roles in Havoc and Brokeback Mountain, where she played the wife of Jake Gyllenhaal's character. The Devil Wears Prada is Hathaway's biggest success to date, and she will soon star in Becoming Jane, in which she plays author Jane Austen.
