No ducking for cover for this weekend's Saturday Night Live
host Anne Hathaway
– who opened her monologue on the NBC comedy show by chronicling her "busy summer."
"I broke up with my boyfriend," said the Rachel Getting Married
star, "and two weeks later he was sent to prison for fraud."
As the crowd laughed and applauded, Hathaway, 25, went on to say slyly, "I mean, we've all been there, right ladies?"
Continuing with her confessional tone, Hathaway said the "experience made me feel pretty gullible, and I was ready to swear off dating, but then I found an amazing new guy."
He turns out to be a Nigerian prince who out of the blue sent her an e-mail and asked for her Social Security number.
"How sweet is that?" she said, adding that for their one-month anniversary she sent him a mixed CD – and $100,000.
"I feel pretty good about us," she declared.
Last month, of course, Hathaway's former boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, 30, pleaded guilty
to some 14 criminal counts
Last Thursday on ABC's Good Morning America
, Hathaway said
she's "trying to move on and have a sense of humor" in the wake of her breakup.
