From her starring role as Princess Mia Thermopolis in 2001's The Princess Diaries to her Oscar-winning role as Fantine in 2012's Les Misérables, Anne Hathaway has been a household name in Hollywood for decades. But Hathaway has made a point of keeping her personal life private — including her nine-year marriage to Adam Shulman.
Hathaway surprised fans when she tied the knot with Shulman, her then-boyfriend of four, in a private ceremony in Big Sur, California, in September 2012. She was only 29 years old at the time.
Now, nine years and two children later, the couple remain strong, committed and largely out of the limelight. Who is Hathaway's longtime partner? From Shulman's career to his history with Hathaway, here's everything you need to know about the man who stole the actress' heart.

Hathaway knew she was going to marry Shulman when she first met him.
Shulman and Hathaway met at the 2008 Palm Springs Film Festival. Hathaway later told Harper's Bazaar UK in their February 2013 cover story that she told a mutual friend of theirs at the time, "I'm going to marry this man. I think he thought I was a little crazy, which I am a little bit, but I'm nice too."
When asked if she faced trust issues on their first date (Hathaway's last ex, Raffaello Follieri, had been arrested for cheating), Hathaway was honest with the British publication. She said: "I was just very honest with him. I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life. I also knew I couldn't have met him at a worse time... I took my confidence out for a ridiculous spin with him. [I told him:] "I believe because I have to believe that what just happened to me was the exception and not the rule and that people are good and you are a good person because I feel it. And that's why I'm not in a good place right now, but I'm participating.' And he never hurt me. And I was right. It was scary. But as the days went by it got better and better. I found that the love I found for him made me more trusting of everyone and the more I began to see who I had become. I had lost track of myself over those years and I was actually starting to see who I had become and that's when things got difficult and ugly. I have to forgive myself.”
The couple tied the knot in a low-key ceremony.
Hathaway and Shulman had a very California wedding weekend. More than 150 guests were invited to Big Sur in September 2012, according to People. The celebrations began Friday with a rehearsal dinner at the Ventana Inn and Spa. The ceremony took place at a nearby estate. As for the decor, the couple kept it classy and rustic, with nature-inspired decor, a source told People.

Hathaway says her time with Shulman has changed her for the better.
Hathaway credits her husband for many changes in her life, including her worldview. "He changed my ability to be comfortable in the world," Hathaway told ELLE during an interview for Women in Washington's April 2017 issue. Hathaway said she once cared too much about other people's opinions of her. "How hard have I tried?" the actress asked the interviewer as they read a transcript of their past interviews.
But Shulman helped her boost her own confidence: "I'm a different person than I was then," the actress said. "I think the accepted narrative now is that as women we don't need anyone. But I need my man. His unique and specific love changed me.”
Shulman is a "spectacular" father, according to Hathaway.
Almost four years after the couple tied the knot, they welcomed their first son, Jonathan Rosebank Shulman. He was born in March 2016. Two months after her birth, Hathaway praised Shulman's parenting skills: "As you'd expect, he's spectacular," she told Entertainment Tonight.
The Oscar-nominated actress surprised her fans later in the summer of 2019 when she shared a rare personal Instagram post announcing her second pregnancy. "It's not for a movie... #2," the actress shared with her followers. The couple's second child, a boy named Jack, was born in November of the same year.
He is a jewelry designer and used his skills to create Hathaway's engagement ring.
Have you ever wondered who designed Hathaway's emerald diamond engagement ring? It was Schulman. The New York native is a jewelry designer — and he even has his own jewelry brand called James Banks Design. According to the brand's website, the pieces are handmade in Southern California using recycled materials. "Through initial discussions, pieces are dreamed up, invented, designed and then methodically brought to life," reads the brand's website.

He's a film producer.
In 2014, Shulman collaborated with Hathaway to produce Song One, an indie drama starring the actress. “At first I was curious how it would go. People always say don't work with your spouse. But I loved working with him," Hathaway told People. “He's really good at it and he's a wonderful producer. And I feel like I actually learned a lot from him in the process.”
He is no stranger to the acting world.
Shulman graduated with a B.A. in Theater from Brown University. According to IMDB, he has five acting credits under his belt, including his role as Paul O'Bannon on the NBC show American Dreams.
He received the seal of approval from Emily Blunt, one of Hathaway's close friends.
Hathaway counts "The Devil Wears Prada" co-star Emily Blunt among her closest friends in Hollywood. And Blunt loves Hathaway and Shulman together. The British actress told ELLE in March 2017 that Shulman "was, in many ways, Annie's greatest achievement. It's a kind of home away from the storm of fame that she lives with. Being with the right person has been a big part of her growth, but I don't think she cares anymore. That's something we're both feeling now: Who fucking cares? You get to a point where the stuff you used to sweat just doesn't matter anymore. It's a great place.”

Early in the pandemic, Schulman retained a sense of humor regarding Hathaway's anxiety-driven habits.
Hathaway appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live in October 2020, during which the host asked how she and her family were handling safety at the start of the pandemic. Hathaway said to Kimmel, laughing, "It's so embarrassing. I don't know what I was thinking, but you know those little magical thoughts that keep you going, that keep your anxiety at bay, and it's like, 'As long as I do this thing, will everything be fine?' So I decided that it would protect my family if I taped all our light switches and our doorknobs because… these are the most commonly touched surfaces and we will only remember to wash our hands and put Lysol on them. And I remember doing that and my husband came up the stairs and he saw what I was working on and he said, 'What? Why?' ... And he kept making fun of me."
She also mentioned how "wearing a really sensible pair of heels" inexplicably made her more confident. "[That feeling] lasted exactly five hours," she says. "And again, my husband gave it — my husband teased me about it yesterday." When Kimmel asked if Schulman had done anything weird in the early days of the pandemic, Hathaway replied, shaking his head, "Ugh. he is so perfect I know I shouldn't say that; it's too much pressure. But he's a really easygoing guy, so he's usually pretty spot on. I'm the one spinning a little I am very happy that I married him.”
They are not sure if they want to have another child.
During the same interview with Kimmel, Hathaway revealed that she hasn't decided yet whether she and Schulman will have another baby. "Yeah, I don't know," she said. "I don't know. Some minutes I'm like, 'Yeah, absolutely,' and some minutes I'm like, 'The world scares me too much,' and I think I've got two healthy ones, and that feels really great So I don't know for sure yet."

The couple have been making more public appearances together since lockdown.
The two were recently spotted together at a trio of events including the opening of The Music Man on Broadway, a casual date at Soho House in New York City and in Milan at the Giorgio Armani runway show during Milan Fashion Week.
Together they campaign for political participation.
Hathaway shared a photo of himself with Shulman and some friends in support of the constitutional right to vote. The Polaroid showed the actress in a long black summer dress, with Shulman's arm around her. He wears light-colored jeans, a striped polo shirt and holds a black hat.
"Friends don't let friends skip elections!" Hathway wrote in the caption, along with instructions for checking registration and locating polling places.

Yes, you know everyone thinks they look like William Shakespeare.
A fun fact about the actress is that her name, Anne Hathaway, is shared with William Shakespeare's wife. Hathaway has always had some issues with her name and wanted to be called "Annie" as a child.

People say that your husband Adam looks just like William Shakespeare and that you look just like his wife, also named Anne Hathaway, married in 1582. Would love and die if you could tell me here first if you really are a time traveller are and your opinion on it?"
"That's actually the most adorable question ever," Hathaway replied. "And he looks like William Shakespeare, doesn't he? Current situation but I'll update you if I see you."
