I’ve said it before here. Meryl Streep is NOT a fashion person and The Devil Wears Prada was one of her LEAST believable performances. Anne Hathaway said that Streep stayed in character between the scenes during filming as she recalled recently on The Graham Norton Show;
“When I met her she gave me a huge hug…. and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, we are going to have the best time on this movie.’ And then she’s like, ‘Ah sweetie, that’s the last time I’m nice to you.’ She then went into her trailer and came out the ice queen and that was really the last I saw of ‘Meryl’ for months, until we promoted the film.”
THAT’S staying in character, kids. Either that, or it was an easy way to deal with “I don’t like you” and avoid Hathaway for the entire shoot. Guess we’ll never know.
