Career as an actor and other ventures
Adam launched his career by appearing in the film “Liberation” which was followed by him producing as well as starring in the movie “Puzzler”.

Adam is also a jewelry designer, having founded his own company called James Banks Designs with his friend Heidi Nahser Fink, who is a famous designer. The two are creating unique vintage pieces of jewelry – one of their most expensive pieces is the lightbulb-inspired necklace which costs around $5,000.

The two met at Palms Spring Film Festival, and although Anne wanted to stay single for a while after her break-up, she changed her mind after being introduced to Adam by a mutual friend, who told her she would marry him one day. It was Anne who asked Adam out on a date, which turned out to be a trip to New Orleans. They married on 29 September 2012, and Anne gave birth to their son Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman on 24 March 2016, and their second son named Jack Shulman followed in November 2019.
Rumor has it that the two had problems in marriage as Anne wanted to move to Los Angeles as her job demanded it, while Adam wanted to stay and raise their first child in Manhattan.
It appears that the two have worked things out, and Anne is dividing her time between Los Angeles and New York City.

Who is Anne Hathaway?
Anne Jacqueline Hathaway was born in Brooklyn, New York City USA on 12 November 1982, so her zodiac sign is Scorpio and she holds American nationality.
She is an actress, perhaps best known for her roles in “Devil Wears Prada” in 2006 and in “One Day” in 2011. She was raised with two brothers named Michael and Thomas partially in the Brooklyn, by her mother Kate who was an actress, and her father Gerald who was an attorney. The family moved to Short Hills, Millburn, New Jersey when she was six years old, the same year that she saw her mother perform as Fantine in the play “Les Miserables”, and then expressed her wish to become an actress herself. However, her parents were against it, and her mother decided to stop acting and focus on raising her children. So Anne grew up wanting to become a nun, and was close to the church, but after finding out that her brother Michael was gay and the church’s attitude to such a situation, her beliefs and interests changed.
She enrolled at Brooklyn Heights Montessori School, later switching to Wyoming Elementary School in Millburn and upon finishing it, she began attending Millburn High School, playing soccer for the school’s team and appearing in most of the school’s plays. After she matriculated, Anne enrolled at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, but left to pursue her acting career.
She had her first lead roles in the Disney films “The Princess Diaries” and “The Other Side of Heaven” in 2001. Her next notable role was in 2005 in the drama film “Brokeback Mountain” in which she starred alongside Heath Ledger and Jake Hyllenhaal.
She was the star of the comedy film “The Devil Wears Prada” released in 2006, and in 2010 she starred in the romantic comedy film “Valentine’s day” alongside Ashton Kutcher. She was invited to play a lead role in the romantic drama film called “Love & Other Drugs” the same year, and in 2011 she portrayed Emma Morley in the romantic comedy film “One Day”.
It is widely believed that her best performance was in the film “Les Miserables” in 2012, in which she portrayed Fantine, the same role she’d been so impressed by her mother playing it. For the role she had to lose 11kgs, cut her hair, and learn about prostitution. Later, “The Washington Post” wrote ‘the centerpiece of a movie composed entirely of centerpieces belongs to Anne Hathaway, who as the tragic heroine Fantine, sings another of the memorable numbers’.
