The 'One Day' star – who has been dating actor Adam Shulman for three years –had been "looking forward to a little alone time" after her ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri was imprisoned for four-and-a-half years in 2008 after pleading guilty to cheating investors out of millions of dollars.

She said: "I am very much in love. Adam totally ruined my plan. I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time and then I fall in love like a fool.

"It's three years. It’s serious!"

Despite now being in a happy relationship with Adam, the 28-year-old actress confessed she dealt with her heartbreak over Raffaello's incarceration by making a "joke" about it on US TV shows 'Saturday Night Live' and 'The Late Show'.

In an interview with Britain's Marie Claire magazine, Anne added: "That was how I got through my pain. I wrote funny songs about it. That’s always been the way I deal with things. You make a joke of it."
