Hathaway’s rep confirmed the news to the magazine after Hathaway, who has been dating Shulman since 2008, was spotted Sunday in Brooklyn with an engagement ring on her finger.
Last year’s Oscar co-host and our current Catwoman, 29, has not always had the best luck with men; she was in a four-year relationship with Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri, the guy who pleaded guilty in 2008 to money laundering, fraud and wire tapping in connection with what became known as the Vati-Con scandal. Follieri is currently serving a four-and-a-half-year jail sentence on those charges.
Hathaway ended the relationship with Follieri that same year, shortly before his arrest, and began dating Shulman, an actor and co-founder of the jewelry design company James Banks Designs, a few months later. Their relationship has been, happily for Hathaway, entirely scandal-free so far.
Perhaps it’s a little too early to start thinking about wedding plans, but let’s hope the “Princess Diaries” star won’t behave in real life the same way she did in “Bride Wars” ... or, for that matter, in “Rachel Getting Married.”
