Anne Hathaway appears to be coping well after her recent split from Italian businessman, Raffaello Follieri. She seemed perfectly fine at the premiere of her new movie, Get Smart, in Los Angeles Monday night, says her costar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

In fact, he wasn't even aware that she'd broken up. "I had no idea that happened," he told PEOPLE in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

The wrestler-turned-actor had nothing but praise for the 25-year-old actress. "She's tremendously funny and charming and beautiful and intelligent – all the things that every guy looks for," he said.

And even though "she's a pretty striking looking woman," Johnson noted, "she's got a great, comedic, endearing quality to her in a very self-deprecating way, which is nice."

Johnson was in town for the annual Congressional Awards dinner, where he was being honored for the work his DJ Rock Foundation does with youth. The U.S. representative from American Samoa, Eni Faleomavaega, presented the award to Johnson and placed a Tu'ipapai, a traditional garland made of Paogo tree blossoms, around his neck. (The actor's mother, Ata Johnson, who was with him at the dinner, is from Samoa.)

And the Scorpion King star seems to have come out fine from his own relationship woes. His ex-wife, whom he officially divorced last month, accompanied him to the event. She even got a special shout-out in his acceptance speech, when he called her "my beautiful partner, Dany."

The two have a six-year-old daughter, Simone, who was also in the audience to cheer on her dad.
