Apparently For Love and Other Drugs star Anne Hathaway will not entertain talk of her co-star’s love-life during interviews, according to US Weekly.  During a press conference for the movie, questions arose about Jake Gyllenhaal and his connection to teen singing sensation Taylor Swift.  Anne Hathaway took the pressure off of her co-star by saying, “You keep the conversation to me and only me or otherwise I’m going to get nasty!  Thank you.”

How can you avoid answering prying relationship questions?

Cupid’s Advice:

Don’t fold to the pressure of onlookers when your private life is abuzz, and you’re not ready (or willing) to talk about it:

1. Laugh it off: If a topic or question comes up that you aren’t comfortable answering, give a little laugh paired with a mysterious smile and a shrug.  This will send the message that your lips are sealed on the matter.

2. Change the subject: Segway the question at hand onto another topic.  Interjecting “speaking of…” or “that reminds me…” takes the focus off of you and onto something new.

3. Be blunt: If all else fails, be blunt about it.  “I’m sorry, but I’m not comfortable answering that,” or “That’s none of your business” will get to the point when politeness doesn’t.
