Anne Hathaway is determined not to let her recent break-up with RAFFAELLO FOLLIERI interfere with her campaign for U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama.
The Get Smart star split from the Italian businessman in June (08), shortly before he was arrested on suspicion of unscrupulous business dealings.
But, speaking at last week's (25-28Aug08) Democratic National Convention in Colorado, Hathaway insists she won't allow the split to keep her from supporting Obama's bid to take the White House.
She tells the New York Daily News, "My life didn't begin when my relationship (with Raffaello) began. I come from a middle-class Democratic family. I've had strong ties with the Clintons since they were elected.
"The most important thing for me is getting a Democrat in the White House. I keep thinking about Michelle Obama's speech... about our hopes and fears and not being afraid anymore."
