MUMBAI: Bride Wars star Anne Hathaway has taken to the internet to teach herself how to play the guitar so that she can serenade her boyfriend, actor Adam Shulman.
Using video tutorials online, the actress learnt to play The Beatles’ 1968 song Blackbird as a special birthday present for her new love, who turned 28 on 2 April.
"For my boyfriend’s birthday I learned how to play a song for him. I’d never heard the song before and he played it for me. It’s the Beatles song Blackbird. And so I studied it for a while and then I learned how to play it," she said.
The 26-year-old actress showed off her limited guitar skills on US TV when comedian/presenter Jimmy Fallon asked her to play something for the audience on his Late Night program.
"I know how to play two songs, Blackbird and this other song. I learned this off the Internet, literally learned from YouTube lessons – how to play guitar. I am almost done with the first one! So I learned this song, I got the chords online but I’m not very good at it," she added
