When asked if she would take the opportunity to work with her former co-star of “The Devil Wears Prada,” Hathaway told Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday that she would “love” to.
“I wish, I wish, I wish,” she said. “She’s very busy.”
Hathaway memorably played Andy Sachs, the aspiring journalist-turned-personal assistant to Miranda Priestly (Streep), the demanding editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine, in “The Devil Wears Prada” in 2006.
Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep photographed together at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday, Feb. 22, 2009, in West Hollywood, California. Hathaway recently revealed that she'd love to work with the acting legend, Streep, again.
The award-winning film has undoubtedly become a 2000s cult classic. The movie has even spurred several fan theories over the years.
Despite Miranda Priestly’s obvious icy and cruel behavior throughout the film, many fans have insisted that Andy’s boyfriend Nate, played by Adrian Grenier, was, in fact, the real villain in the movie.
Grenier has also chimed in on the online theory that his character in the film was unsupportive of Andy as she worked to advance her career.
During a reunion interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2021, Grenier said that he had since reflected on Nate’s flaws in the film and found that he was “very selfish and self-involved.”
But Hathaway thinks everyone should give her character’s boyfriend a break.
She told host Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” last year that Nate and Andy were written to be young in the film and that Nate shouldn’t be defined by his worst moments in his 20s.
She said, “So, I don’t hold Nate as a villain, actually.”
