Anne Hathaway’s nude photos seized by the FBI

There are said to be nude photos of Anne Hathaway among the effects seized by the FBI in their raid of her boyfriend’s hidden storage space. Hathaway’s boyfriend of four years, Raffaello Follieri, was arrested late last month on federal charges of money laundering and fraud after an elaborate scheme in which he bilked investors out of millions. He claimed to be the CFO of the Vatican and told investors he could get Catholic land in the US at bargain basement prices. Follieri hired church officials to accompany him to meetings and bribed Vatican employees to help him pull off the scheme. Hathaway broke it off with Follieri after his arrest and he is said to be desperate to try and get back in touch with her.

Hathaway’s effects, including her personal diaries, were among the items confiscated by the FBI in their search for evidence in the case against Follieri. Now it seems that nude photos of the actress taken by her ex were also found. Her brother was seen trying to retrieve items from the storage which the FBI had raided the day before, and it’s possible he was looking specifically for those pictures.

The Enquirer has learned exclusively that her ex-lover Raffaello Follieri took naked photos of the actress. Follieri was arrested June 24 and charged with 11 counts of fraud and money laundering…

In additional to the naked photos he took of Anne, 25, he also prized a sizzling photo of her in black fishnet stockings, a garter belt and bustier that totally exposed her top. Follieri, 30, supposedly paid a very famous photographer to take that steamy shot.

The Enquirer learned that just recently, Anne’s brother Michael tried to gain access to a hidden storage room in the Bronx where Follieri had storied some of his and Anne’s belongings after he moved out of his apartment.

“Michael went to the storage facility, but was told he was a day late. The day before (July 15), FBI agents had removed numerous documents, photos and what were believed to be Anne’s diaries from the storage room….

Michael was told that he could not get into the room or take anything out.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, August 11, 2008]

Follieri is now in NY’s Metropolitan Correctional Center and the Enquirer notes that he has been unable to raise bail, which has been set at $21 million. He is an obvious flight risk considering the depths of his lies and his ties to Italy.

Hathaway appeared topless in Brokeback Mountain, so it’s not like her image will be ruined if these are average nude photos and they get out. Maybe the FBI will keep them safe though and she doesn’t have much to worry about.

    Poor thing. I feel so sorry for her. One wonders if she had any idea he was so slimy. I wish she had gotten out sooner.

    Years ago, I had a relative investigated by the FBI, they came in and took all computer equipment, disks, papers, everything, and the relative’s wife lost her honor’s thesis, all her notes, everything. She never got any of it back, even though he was never indicted of any crime.

    In hindsight, it’s nice she didn’t have any sex tapes or photos for them to take…I guess it can fall under the “could have been worse” category!

    Mama used to say;
    If you want to keep it a secret, don’t tell anyone.

    Two words: encrypted hard-drive

  4. Julia says:

    I am pretty sure that FBI computer specialists would be able to access things, even if they were encrypted, V.

    I feel for her, though. Regardless of whether or not her boobs are something nobody has ever seen, photos like that are still very intimate and personal–it would still feel violating and embarrassing. I hope that they are able to ascertain that the pics are useless in the investigation and then either return or destroy them, for her sake.

  5. Kay says:

    I can’t feel bad for her, she has to have known what was going on. How do you date someone and be oblivious to there source of income. And if she knew that they were coming to get him when she left the country she really should have thought about taking all that stuff with her.

  6. CelebitchyFAN says:

    What exactly does nude photos of Anne Hathaway have to do with an FBI investigation about a man who was stealing? I understand the diaries, should could have put all kinds of information in there that they could use, but I don’t understand taking the photos. There is simply no reason for it.

  7. All Adither says:

    Oh, Anne. Movie stars are no supposed to pose for nude pics. It’s no big deal when I do it, but you should not.

  8. Kaiser says:

    She sent her brother to retrieve the nudie pics? Ewww…

  9. Blackalicious says:

    haha @ Vdantev; that’s why I’m glad I married a tech geek.

    And I know, HELLO? I wouldn’t want to send my brother to fetch nude pictures. He’d be just as grossed out too, not like he’d want to see that. Guess she had no one else she could trust though, esp. as her bf turned out to be a con artist. It must be a nightmare some randoms reading your diary; another reason I never would keep one. No thanks.

    Some pictures she looks great but I don’t know what it is: she looks odd usually. It’s like she needs more ‘face’ for her features to be balanced.

  10. geronimo says:

    “It’s like she needs more ‘face’ for her features to be balanced. ”

    Blackalicious, you’re right about this – she’s slightly all features – the eys, the mouth – and very litle face. Like a really young kitten or meer cat or something before it grows into its face. She IS very attractive but can also look really odd.

  11. Kaiser says:

    @blackalicious & Geronimo – It’s the make-up, isn’t it? Sometimes she looks so pretty, and sometimes… between the eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, something’s not working.

  12. Other Karen says:

    Once something’s confiscated, it can be quite hard to get it back.

    There’s an older couple, Luther and Meredith Ricks, that lost $400K+ that was in their safe to the police–a burglar in their home was shot, but no charges were made since it’s self-defense. He also had small amounts of medical marijuana, which they never charged him for. BUT the local police won’t give them the cash back on the grounds that they might be drug-dealing revenues, despite the complete lack of evidence. Then the FBI stepped in and demanded the dough.

    So much for a nice retirement . . .

    One of the local papers, I think. Libertarian websites have a lot about it too.

  13. Joe says:

    Hopefully, a BJ vid will make its appearance on the web soon…

  14. rlr260 says:

    Other Karen, that’s terrible about the Ricks in Ohio.

  15. Because I say So says:

    @ Blackalicious, Geronimo & Kaiser:

    I think she looks so “off” sometimes because she closely resembles a squirrel. With heavy eye-liner, and when she pouts (or says “prune”) her features squash together and it’s like looking at a strategically shaved squirrel. At least that’s my opinion….

  16. Aspen says:

    Okay, yeah. I’m sorry, but if you’re sleeping with a felon…don’t let him take nude photos of you. When you break up with him for being a dirty felon…take the nude photos and your diaries WITH you when you leave. DUH. What did she think was going to happen to those things?

    And I’m so SICK of everyone “feeling sorry” for her. She was with him for four years. She was living under the same roof with him and jetting all over the world in a horrendously expensive lifestyle. She’s obviously an intelligent woman. The rumors have been swirling for a long time. And…she never hired a PI or dug a little deeper? Please. She either knew every detail of what this man was doing and didn’t care…separating herself at the last moment in an attempt to keep herself out of prison for some sort of collusion in all this (worst case) OR she just did what so many STUPID women do, which was to bury her head in the sand and ignore what was glaringly obvious because she “loved him,” and didn’t want to face the truth. So she’s either a total criminal with no morals or she’s a weak little girl who just got her wake-up call about the consequences of lying down with dogs.

    Either way…I don’t feel sorry for her. She made a series of stupid choices with this man, and the piper has come to collect. If she’s a decent person with some internal fortitude, she’ll come out of this just fine and her career will only benefit from it in the long run.

  17. Rufus says:

    Well, I for one wouldn’t mind seeing the pictures. I think she’s beautiful.

  18. 13 witches says:

    the fbi can take whatever they think might be related to a specific case. in this one, the nude photos show the intimacy or closeness ann h. and ex had. so the question is, how can she not have known his “type of business”,something so so basic, you normally find out at the very begining of a relationship. either she knew or she’s the biggest dumb-ass ever. as a person with education in the law, i feel the nudes are relevant in case they need to endict her. we don’t know the whole story yet. oh, and i agree with those who think she’s cute but also weird looking.

  19. DonR says:

    If Hathaway’s name isn’t on the warrant there could be a legal issue involved seizing her personal property.

  20. All Adither says:

    All of you coming to my blog from here hoping to see nudie pics. I was JOKING. There are none. And you should thank your lucky stars.

  21. ginny says:

    Shouldn’t do something if you aren’t proud to show the world………..

  22. mymanmccain says:

    Hathaway has been nude in a movie or two, and if one really wants a look, do a search on the web. Nice body even if the face is a little unusual, but unusual can be good sometimes.

  23. Rollando says:

    If the FBI knows she has nothing to do with her ex.’s schemes, they should come out and tell her about what is happening with those photos. They should return them to her once it is decided it would not be needed to prosecute her ex. If it is decided those photos will be used as evidence, perhaps she can appeal to the DA and defense attorney to request a closed session trial for her ex., meaning no outsiders and the paparazzi would be allowed to view the evidence, just the jury.

  24. Dear Anne Hathaway,
    I am the Billionaire son of the owner of the company that owns the Eifell Tower, I can spend many American Dollars having the naked pictures of you taken. First you need to send 10,000 to a bank in Siberia where I am being held. No really i am a great guy with lots of money, What more would you need to ask me?

  25. Taz says:

    Seen pics of her taken by a photog :

    Anne Hathaway with bf Follieri on a yacht shamelessly giving him a blowjob in plain view in broad daylight… Just shows what kind of girl she is…

  26. Suchi says:

  28. steve says:

  29. ontherun says:

    If she didn’t know, until it was too late, try not to think so harshly of her. My first marriage was to a man that had everyone fooled, until it was too late. I know that for every person there is a breaking point, and past that it is hard to say how you would handle the stitch! Being rich & famous don’t make you immune to abuse,or smart enough to catch on to every con.

  30. jazzene tan yu xuan says:

    wad a lame pic
    add some interesting de la
    just show her breasts 8)

  31. SCI says:

    There are always warning signs, so I don’t think think you should feel bad for her just because she would not see.

    Naked pictures, blow jobs in public – sounds to me like she is trying to shake the kiddie flick image.
