In “Bride Wars,” Anne Hathaway goes from Kate Hudson’s best friend to rival bride-zilla. But despite playing a troubled bride on the big screen and having gone through a tough split earlier this year with now-incarcerated businessman Raffaello Follieri, Anne still believes she may one day walk down the aisle.
“Sometimes I find myself somewhere and I’m just like, ‘Oh, it’d be really fun to get married here,’” Anne told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson. “I really don’t know what that says about me but… I try not to anticipate things before they happen — especially things that I would like very much to have happen.”
But like many people who have had a relationship go sour, Anne does question whether a wedding is in her future.
“Of course, like everyone, I’m kind of going through a moment where I’m like, ‘Do I even believe in marriage?’ ‘What’s going on?’ You know, as you do when you’re fresh from a break up,” the actress explained.
Anne, who in October said she met a guy who she thought was “sexy,” told Shaun the future is open, but she is hopeful that love will come her way.
“I do think eventually someday — if I met the right person — I would get married,” she said.
One reason for Anne’s hopeful outlook? Her folks.
“My parents, they’ve been married for 28 years,” she said. “So I know it’s possible.”
And thanks to her parents, Anne knows any long lasting relationship comes with the willingness to work at it.
“I don’t have rose colored glasses looking at them,” she said. “I’ve seen them struggle, I’ve seen them triumph, I’ve seen them be bored with each other… Someone said to me recently that the key to a great relationship, not necessarily a great marriage, but a great relationship is to not have your point of identity in the other person.
“You have to know who you are, live for yourself and if you so believe, your point of identity with God, with your life,” Anne continued. “And then delight in the other person, accept the other person. But [don’t] live for the other person.”
