Anne Hathaway's ex is apparently hoping for a presidential pardon.

The Oscar-winning actress former boyfriend Raffaello Follieri is allegedly seeking return back to America after he was arrested in 2008 for money laundering and fraud. He was sentenced to four and a half years in prison.

Follieri dated Hathaway for nearly four years then was convicted for defrauding investors out of millions of dollars.

"When you are 25 years old and you have a company growing very fast, you get carried away in situation," Follieri said of his arrest during a 2012 Nightline interview. "At the time, my life was pretty good. I had a girl that I love. My business was going well. ... I thought that was the American dream. But it was not so long later that everything fall apart."

Obviously the actress broke up with Follieri after she found out the truth about his business. After his release from prison he initially stated he had no intention of clearing his now, however it seems now he has changed his mind.

"He misses America, and when he gets enough money he wants to lobby for a presidential pardon," a source told The New York Post.

The convict is allegedly attempting to buy an "energy company in Switzerland" according to the source, but is still having difficulties finding investors.

"I think when somebody spends four and a half years with another person means that -- it was something that was working for us ... but life goes in different direction that we cannot control," he told Nightline.

“He must be dying that he’s missing the limelight,” the source told the Post.
