Despite her recent break-up with her boyfriend of four years, accused conman Rafaello Follieri, Anne Hathaway
still intends to date - in the future.
Regarding the rules of the game, the actress, 25, says, however, "I try not to date where I work. It makes life easier."
Speaking to Britain's The Independent
, Hathaway says, "I don't say no to anybody because I'd hope that people wouldn't say no to me just because I'm an actor - but they'd have to be pretty extraordinary."
When it comes to making love last, however, Hathaway's role models are much closer to home: "My parents have been married more than 25 years, with all the glory and the pain you can imagine, but they've stayed together. I want a strong marriage like that."
As for the latest status on Follieri, the Italian businessman remains in prison in the U.S., awaiting trial on a dozen counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.
With the brave face that Hathaway has been keeping in public, she quotes 1920's humorist Will Rogers: "The worst thing that happens to you can be the best thing for you, if you don't let it get the best of you."
