Adam Shulman was barely known until he started dating Anne Hathaway. The only son to Mark Shulman and Jacqueline Banks was born on April 2, 1981, in Brooklyn, New York. He is an actor, a film producer, and a father of two after the couple welcomed their son Jonathan in March 2016. In 2019, they welcomed their second child, but there is more to this man than meets the eye. Below are ten things you didn’t know about Adam Shulman.
1. It took a while before he began dating Anne Hathaway
Not many believe in love at first sight, but it was in the case of Adam and Anne. Adam had been crushing on Anne for a long, and when they met in 2008, Anne could not help but whisper to a mutual friend that Adam would be her husband. However, none of them took any initiative to act on their feelings because they thought the other was in a relationship. Anne took the first step and invited the man she thought was the love of her life on a trip to New Orleans, and after four years of dating, they got married in 2012.
2. Adam Shulman enjoys being a father
Anne Hathaway and Shulman are the proud parents of two children. Born in 2016 and 2018, this family is pretty close and hidden from the public eye, which is probably great considering how famous Anne Hathaway is. During an interview with People magazine, Adam said that he enjoys every part of fatherhood, even changing diapers. He also gushed over how he is more amazed at his wife and what a wonderful mother she is to their children.
3. He is charitable
Adam is what every woman would want in a partner, especially with his kind heart. In 2013, he and his business partner designed handcrafted jewelry pieces, and all the proceeds from the sale were donated to the World of Children Award. The Limited Edition Key necklace featured the organization’s logo, and Adam and Heidi took two months to complete the pieces.
4. He and his wife have produced films together
When Anne said that she felt supported on and off-screen when filming “Song One,” she most likely was referring to her husband’s effect on her. Since the couple produced the film together, Anne must have felt his support even before the filming started. They must have had a good time working together because they produced “The Shower,” a sci-fi comedy in which Anne also starred. However, that does not mean Adam cannot work independently. He produced the movie “Ricki and the Flash,” in which Meryl Streep starred with her daughter, Mamie Gummer, without Anne’s collaboration.
5. He does not mind riding a scooter
Celebrities have an image to maintain, which means you will barely see them doing something ordinary Americans would do. However, some, like Adam and Anne, are down to earth and love keeping it real. When she arrived for her interview with Harpers Bazaar, the actress arrived in a scooter. She noticed that it seemed pretty strange for her to be riding one. Anne and Adam bought them to have a more efficient means of transport when the system was down.
6. He makes his wife too happy
Having come from a nightmarish relationship, Anne feels like the most blessed woman to have Adam. She, therefore, cannot help but light up whenever Adam walks into a room. No wonder she inspired Adam’s design of the Lightkeepers because she feels her light has been taken away whenever Adam is away. The effect he has on her is so much that when filming “Les Miserables,” Anne hade to banish Adam from the set. He was making her too happy, yet the movie demanded her to be sad.
7. He helped his wife regain trust in people
In 2004, Anne Hathaway fell madly in love with an Italian businessman, Raffaello Follieri, but by 2008, the relationship had taken a turn for the worst. Raffaello was imprisoned for fraud after channelling money from charities to maintain a lavish lifestyle. Anne had enjoyed trips to exotic places and expensive jewelry as gifts. When she met Adam in 2008, her trust in people was already broken. However, Anne opened up to Bazaar and took out her trust on a ridiculous joyride with him. Anne, therefore, told him she would trust that he was a good person; she was right to give him a chance because Adam had never hurt her. The more Anne got to know Adam, the more she could trust people again.
8. Adam Shulman is a Jewelry designer
Aside from his acting talent, Adam is also a jewelry designer. Designer Heidi Nashe Fink and Adam own a jewelry company known as James Banks Design. The designer collaborated with Kwiat jewellery company to create Ann Hathaway’s engagement ring. How romantic is that? Also, instead of buying new materials to create unique pieces, the jewelry shop James Banks Design uses what they already have in the studio. They aim to be as resourceful as possible.
9. His acting career
After gathering all there is to know about acting, Adam finally had a chance to portray his skills on television. The opportunity came in 2005 when he starred as Paul O’Bannon in five episodes of “American Dreams,” a show that aired from 2002 to 2005. He later appeared as a young voter in the political drama “The West Wing.” The movie “The Dukes of Hazzard” served as his big break; since then, he has been cast in different films.
10. He had a Jewish wedding
Adam was raised in a family that upheld Jewish beliefs. Unlike his wife Anne, who has strayed from her Catholic upbringing, Adam remains a staunch Jew, as evidenced by his wedding. As published in People, Anne was under the chuppah, a Jewish wedding canopy, when they exchanged vows. The ceremony had a rabbi and priest officiating it, while the event planner, Yifat Oren, was also Jewish. Yifat has been hired by various celebrities, such as Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz, to help plan their Jewish weddings.
