The Devil may wear Prada, but Andy Sachs still rides alone.
“The Devil Wears Prada” screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna has revealed that Anne Hathaway’s iconic character Andy Sachs would “definitely not” be dating Adrian Grenier’s unsupportive chef Nate if there was a sequel.
“It’s Andy and Nate.” obviously not together, Brosh McKenna said Species. “That’s all I can say.”
Grenier’s Nate is considered the true “villain” of the beloved 2006 rom-com, following aspiring journalist Andy (Hathaway) as he rises through the ranks at Runway, a Vogue knockoff fashion magazine. Meryl Streep played Andy’s boss, Miranda Priestly, who was infamously modeled after Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
Hathaway recently addressed the new Nate hatred, saying in the “Watch What Happens Live!” under. that Nate is not the villain. “No, sorry, not (I think),” the Oscar winner said. “I think they were both very young and figuring things out.”
Hathaway added, “He was acting like a kid, but I was acting like a kid in my 20s, and hopefully I’ve grown out of it. I think we all do, and I don’t want the worst moment of my twenties to define me. So I don’t think of Nate as a villain.
Grenier himself considered that Nate was indeed a “very selfish and self-absorbed” partner.
Brock McKenna also said Entertainment Weekly on the film’s 15th anniversary: “He (Andy is) saying he’s following the devil the wrong way. And this is her role, which is often played by women, which is to remind the character of their moral intentions. I don’t think he supports his work; in the end he is happy with it. I don’t think it’s like no will to work him.”
But unfortunately, fans won’t get to see that.
WeCrashed star Hathaway later shut down the “Devil Wears Prada” sequel, explaining that while it’s “tempting” to think about reuniting with co-stars Streep, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci to reprise their roles in a Eurocentric sequel. , tracking would simply not make sense.
“I don’t know if (a sequel) is possible,” Hathaway said in November 2022. “I just think that movie was in a different era. Everything is so digital now, and this film centers around the concept of creating a physical thing, and it’s just very different.”
