People tend to hold an incredibly strong opinion about Anne Hathaway. There are fans who think the actress is a master thespian, a gifted mimic, and all-around sweet gal but a large contingent of the population hates her guts.

Yet it’s her real-life role as a time-traveling muse that’s got the internet talking. A new conspiracy theory launched on Twitter could change the way everyone views the 35-year-old Oscar winner and convince the world Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, are time travelers with the latter being a reincarnation of legendary English poet and playwright William Shakespeare.

Twitter user @peachyblackg0rl brought this revelation to light and spun the conspiracy theory wheels in motion after noticing Shulman is a dead ringer for the deceased author. Oh, and did we mention that Shakespeare’s wife’s name was ANNE HATHAWAY?

One of the possible explanations as to how the hell this happened involves a deal with the devil made centuries ago. Others believe the two are time travelers.

Shulman and his Anne Hathaway were married in 2012 when he was 32 and the New Jersey-born actress was 30. Shakespeare and his Anne Hathaway were married in 1582 when he was just 18 and she was 26 years old. She outlived her husband by seven years. In his will, Shakespeare left only one thing to his wife, his “second-best bed with the furniture.” Other Twitter conspirators believe Shakespeare is coming back to right some wrongs after allegedly dumping Hathaway to become famous.

Hathway and Shulman might just be more names to add to the extensive list of celebrities resembling dead people, joining the ranks of President Donald Trump, Matthew McConaughy, and Nicolas Cage. Of course, the best explanation is found in science: Genetics is just a numbers game, and eventually, those numbers come up the same.
