3 Revelations About The Devil Wears Prada That Will Blow Your Mind

Erin Fitzpatrick

In honor of the cult movie's 10th anniversary on June 30, the cast of The Devil Wears Prada sat down for a tell-all with Variety—and, as you can imagine, the interview is chock-full of juicy tidbits.

Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, and Emily Blunt all offered up plenty of never-before-heard fun facts about the film, but three details stuck out to us the most. First, we were surprised to learn that Rachel McAdams was the studio's first choice for Anne Hathaway's starring role, but she turned it down multiple times, "citing her desire to step away from mainstream material." 

From a fashion standpoint, we also reveled in one stat in particular: The costumes, helmed by Patricia Field, cost a staggering $1 million. Our third favorite fact? Meryl Streep revealed that the inspiration for her Miranda Priestly character didn't come from Anna Wintour—it actually came from Clint Eastwood and Mike Nichols.

“The voice I got from Clint Eastwood,” Streep told Variety. “He never, ever, ever raises his voice, and everyone has to lean in to listen, and he is automatically the most powerful person in the room. But he is not funny. That I stole from Mike Nichols." Head over to Variety to read the rest of the fascinating tell-all.
