'Becoming Jane' star Hathaway dishes on boyfriend, gay friends and the Catholic Church

Anne Hathaway has plenty to say about men - straight, gay or celibate.

The actress, who plays writer Jane Austen in the movie "Becoming Jane," told Newsweek for its issue hitting stands Monday that she and her boyfriend, real estate developer Raffaello Follieri, "worship each other. We were desperately in love the first year, then we became each other's best friends."

She also showed an appreciation for actor Colin Firth, who had a steamy scene in a film version of Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

"That was a lovely bit they added. It's porno for tome-reading, tea-drinking girls," Hathaway said, referring to what she called a common but mistaken impression of herself.

The actress said "about 95 percent of my friends are gay men," as is her brother. But she ducked a question about whether that complicated things because Follieri works with the Roman Catholic Church, which does not sanction gay sexual relationships.

"I'd rather not discuss criticism of the Catholic Church," she said. "They've done a lot of great work throughout the world."
