Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway was in Denver at the Democratic convention. She has revealed that she was not really keen on voting for presidential hopeful Barack Obama when she first saw him.
Appearing as part of Holywood’s Creative Coalition, in an interview with the Associated Press Anne Hathaway who recently split from her Italian businessman beau Raffaello Follieri said,
I was kind of afraid of Obama the first time I saw him. I thought, I’ve been burned by guys like you before. I’ve been burned by politicians before that I wanted to believe in and just didn’t live up to it. And I was afraid to trust him and I was afraid to have hope when I first kind of became aware of him.
It was around the time that he gave his speech on race that I just said ‘I can’t deny how I feel about you, Barack Obama. I want you to be the president. I want you in the White House.
Hathaway is among the famous faces who are attending Democratic National Convention in Denver.
