Anne Hathaway covers the September 2011 Marie Claire UK issue wearing a very distinctive Dolce & Gabbana star print dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

In Anne’s interview she talks a lot about pain, her ex boyfriend and about how ‘Life is really f*cked up and it’s really painful sometimes’.

She also talks about her current boyfriend Adam Shulman and how she is very much in love with him.

To read the feature in full, see the September issue of Marie Claire on sale today. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On landing the lead role of Emma in ‘One Day’: “I literally thought I’d misread it. I felt like I’d been punched in the stomach. I was crying and I was gulping for air. Very few movies are honest about love.”

On current boyfriend Adam Shulman: “. Yes, I have a boyfriend. And yes, I am very much in love with him. But you do need to keep your private life private. Adam totally ruined my plan. I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time and then I fell in love like a fool!’”
