Anne Hathaway is determined not to let her recent break-up with Raffaello Follieri interfere with her campaign for U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama.

TheĀ Get Smart star split from the Italian businessman in June 2008, shortly before he was arrested on suspicion of unscrupulous business dealings.

But, speaking at last week's Democratic National Convention in Colorado, Hathaway insists she won't allow the split to keep her from supportingĀ Obama's bid to take the White House.

She tells the New York Daily News, "My life didn't begin when my relationship with Raffaello began. I come from a middle-class Democratic family. I've had strong ties with the Clintons since they were elected. The most important thing for me is getting a Democrat in the White House. I keep thinking about Michelle Obama's speech... about our hopes and fears and not being afraid anymore."
