Anne Hathaway Shared the Sweet Meaning Behind Her and Her Husband's Matching Tattoos

And could he really be the reincarnation of William Shakespeare?

Lest you forget, Anne Hathaway and her husband, fellow actor and producer Adam Shulman, have teeny-tiny matching tattoos. She has a letter M on her wrist and during a new interview on The Drew Barrymore Show, Hathaway explained that it's a tiny reminder of her relationship. She told Barrymore that it's a symbol that represents how she's a whole person without him, but together, they both add a bit more to one another.

Speaking about how she and her husband have been together for 15 years — basically 15 lifetimes by Hollywood standards — Hathaway said that part of it is "the luck of the draw" and the rest is growing together.

"I think it’s a little bit the luck of the draw but we’re really just lucky that we keep growing together, but we have this thing. It’s actually a tattoo, and the idea is that individually we’re whole, but together we’re more," she explained. "I don’t expect him to complete me and he doesn’t expect me to complete him. I’m my own person he’s his own person and we choose to be together because we believe we make each other better and this union is something we both want to participate in."

Elsewhere in the chat, Barrymore asked the Eileen actress (the film arrives in theaters today) whether or not she's aware of the conspiracies surrounding her husband maybe being the reincarnation of famed playwrite William Shakespeare. He was, after all, married to a woman named Anne Hathaway.

"It’s kinda nuts, right?" Anne said. "It’s weird. Right. It would be great if it’s true, but if not, still kinda great. He’s cute. I don’t want to go on about him, but yeah."

Being the pro that she is, however, she turned the conversation right back to her movie, though she did drop another cute detail about Schulman in the process.

"This is what’s really crazy," she shared. "His and my second date was at your Halloween party where you dressed up as Tippi Hedren from The Birds, which is an inspiration for my character in Eileen."
