Remember those photos of Anne Hathaway almost drowning in Hawaii? The actress dropped by The Tonight Show Tuesday night to clear things up.

When Jimmy Fallon asked Hathaway about the photograph, which shows only her head above water and her mouth mid-yell, she explained she had been caught in a riptide for a few minutes but was fine after the moment passed. The only problem was communicating that she wasn’t in any danger to her understandably concerned husband Adam Shulman.

“He’s going ‘Ahhh, ahhhh!’ And I’m like, ‘Noooooo!'” explained Hathaway. Then for emphasis, she repeated the extended “No” to demonstrate her mouth shape.

Love her or hate her, she’s definitely quite a character.
