Scoop: Hathaway dishes about beau’s arrest

Anne Hathaway has finally opened up about how she felt when former beau Raffaello Follieri was arrested on fraud and money-laundering charges in June — just hours after the couple split. (Raffaello just pleaded guilty Wednesday.) The “Devil Wears Prada” star tells W magazine she was “in shock,” but she weathered the storm by throwing herself into her work — and leaning on her friends.

“As soon as I found out about the arrest, I had to get on a plane to Mexico to do a press tour for ‘Get Smart,’” Anne recalls. “And then I spent a week in shock at a friend’s house. And then I had to go back and do more press, and I haven’t stopped since.”

The actress says that to face the media during her darkest hour, she leaned on “the part [of me] that says, ‘You do your job, you keep your head up.’”

The breakup — and having to move out of the apartment she shared with the shady financier, which was searched by the feds — was “a situation where the rug was pulled out from under me all of a sudden,” the 25-year-old admits. “But just as suddenly, my friends threw another rug back under me.”

Her support system included her “Get Smart” co-star. “Steve Carell stepped up for me during an interview when someone asked a question [about it]. He said, ‘At some point you’re going to have to talk about this time in your life. You don’t have to do it this week. I’ll take care of anything that comes your way.’”

Awww! Who knew he was such a sensitive guy?

Long Way Home?

Kirsten Dunst says she’s just not that into “He’s Just Not That Into You” star Justin Long.

The two have been linked since July, when the Mac pitchman split with Drew Barrymore and was sighted with Kirsten in NYC. But although they’ve been spotted together multiple times since then — Us magazine reports that she spent the night at his pad Aug. 29 — Kirsten declares to Harper’s Bazaar that rumors they’re dating are “the funniest thing on planet Earth.”

“I don’t know him from Adam,” the “Spider-Man” star insists.

“I met him once and he and his friend were kind enough to walk me home,” Kirsten maintains. “I’ve never seen him since.”

That’s odd — X17 Online nabbed a shot of the two lunching together at Chateau Marmont in late August. So … he walked her home all the way from New York to L.A.? No wonder they had to stop for a bite.

Sparks: Out

He may maintain that he doesn’t have a serious relationship with Rihanna, but Chris Brown hardly seems to have eyes for anyone else. Although singer Jordin Sparks says she’s been crushing on him since they filmed the sexy “No Air” video, Chris says there are no — wait for it — sparks between them.

“I heard that,” Chris told OK! magazine of the “American Idol” alum’s confession. “But when we did that video, I didn’t feel that chemistry. When they yell ‘action,’ you have to put on a certain performance, but as far as off-camera, there’s no connection.”

Translation: Relax, Rihanna — you’ve got nothing to worry about.

Star: Single

Star Jones has officially dropped the Reynolds from her name — and said goodbye to ex-hubby Al. The New York Post reports that the estranged couple came to an 11th-hour settlement agreement, with a court appearance looming just hours away.

Sources told the paper that the former “View” host’s ex had signed an ironclad prenup that left him “basically nothing.” (That’s what happens when you marry a lawyer.) And Al allegedly couldn’t afford to challenge the document in court.

A rep said the pair “have reached an amicable settlement in their divorce proceeding. … Both parties are moving on with their private lives.”

Pity — we would have loved to see those two duke it out in court. Wonder what dirty laundry might have been aired?
