Released in 2006, The Devil Wears Prada It is a true 21st century classic. The dramatic comedy starring Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep Y Emily Blunt It does not stop adding fans, who study and memorize several of the most important passages of that story. With the passage of time, the possibility of a sequel was always an expression of desire among the public that followed that film, and Hathaway expressed his opinion on this subject during a recent interview.
in dialogue with The viewthe actress who played Andy Sachs, talked about a sequel and was very perceptive about it saying that It’s something “tempting”. But nevertheless, he made it clear that this project may be more an expression of desire than a concrete reality, taking into account that the world of media has changed remarkably, and the idea of a magazine as an object may have been outdated in the past. weather. In this way, Anne expanded: “I think that movie was set in a different time. Nowadays everything is very digital, and for that reason a story centered around the concept of producing a physical element, is very different”.
Later, the protagonist of the film added: “It is tempting to think about Andy and Emily needing to take her coffee to Miranda, who is somewhere in Europe, and how on the trip they add to stanley tucciwhich is in a restaurant, located in Italy. Sure it’s tempting, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. Yes they could relaunch it, find new faces and make it. With those words, and to the pain of the fans, Hathaway seems to close the door on a continuation of that cult piece. Although in Hollywood, as is known, the last word is never said.
On the other hand, recently the actress spoke about another of the hottest debates, which revolves around The Devil Wears Pradaand who proposes that perhaps the antagonistic figure of the story is not Miranda, but the protagonist’s boyfriend, Nate (Adrian Greener), someone unable to support her in her struggle to progress at work.
The issue escalated so much that in 2021, to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the premiere of the mythical film directed by David FrankellEntertainment Weekly magazine, brought together Streep, Hathaway, Grenier, Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci and it was inevitable to touch the subject. “Nate had not grown, but Andy had,” Grenier acknowledged in dialogue with the American media. The actor assumed that at first he was disconcerted by the idea that his character was the bad guy in the movie, and that he was only able to accept it when he matured and understood the situation.
“When all that came out for the first time, it did not fit in my head,” The actor pointed out on one occasion, and about that he explained: “I didn’t understand. Maybe it was because he wasn’t a mature man, as does Nate, who probably could have used a bit of growing up. I was as immature as he was at the time, so I couldn’t see his flaws.”
At that time, Hathaway limited himself to having a pious look at Nate’s character, but he avoided taking sides on the great compulse that raged the networks for months. “I don’t think everyone is completely honest with themselves about their own tantrums. He was in a bad mood on his birthday because his girlfriend wasn’t there.”maintained the actress.
This Tuesday, however, he decided to go further. The actress participated as a guest in Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and it was blunt: “I don’t agree with Nate being the villain. I think they were both very young and they were solving things with the tools they had.”
She added: “It’s true… He acted like a brat, but I acted like a brat too when I was twenty years old and luckily I got over that. I think it’s something that happens to all of us at that age. And you know, I would not like to be defined by my worst moment in my twenties, certainly. So I really refuse to consider Nate a villain.” In this way, albeit elliptically, he scored another point for Miranda, the only “adult” of the trio of candidates.
