Anne Hathaway. Adam Shulman - Anne Hathaway's riptide struggle

Anne Hathaway got caught in a riptide in Hawaii.

The 'Les Miserables' actress went for a dip in the ocean during her vacation in January and started to panic when she couldn't get back to shore, although she knew the situation was under control and she wasn't going to drown.

Talking on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon yesterday (09.04.14), she said: ''I went for a swim in Hawaii and I have been swimming in the ocean my whole life. It has never been a problem for me. But I think I was maybe a little arrogant, and got caught in a rip and I couldn't get out.

''I had been swimming for like 10 minutes ... I wasn't being pulled out [completely], I just couldn't get in [to shore]. It would've been really scary if I had been pulled out [to sea].

''But I was just stuck 400 or 500 yards out. I was like 'OK, I'm just gonna float for a second and hopefully rest and OK, no, this isn't working'.''

When Anne's husband Adam Shulman spotted her, he made the situation all the more dramatic for onlookers by screeching that she was dying.

She explained: ''My husband sees me and he's just like [gasps] ... But trying to communicate to your husband who's 500 yards out that I'm sort of not OK [is difficult]... [I was thinking] 'Don't run out there's photographers, you just made this so much more dramatic!'

''He's like, 'My wife is dying', and I'm like 'I'm not dying, I just don't know how to communicate this to you!' ''

Anne injured her foot during the incident and was touched when Adam affectionately kissed it better, despite knew photographers were watching.

She added: ''I got to land eventually, and I cut my foot and that turned into a whole other internet thing ... My husband went to get band aids and we had this moment where he was sitting there holding my foot.

''We knew we were having our photograph taken,and we knew that if the photograph wasn't being taken he would have given my foot a kiss. I watched my husband make a decision about what kind of mAn he was, and he was like, 'I don't care, Mwah!' ''
