Anne Hathaway and Adrian Grenier on Nate Being The Devil Wears Prada’s Real Villain


Weekly entertainment have the the devil wears Prada reunited to reflect on the film on its 15th birthday – and Anne Hathaway (who played Andy) and Adrian Grenier (who played boyfriend Nate) directly addressed the internet’s belief that Nate was the real villain of the film, and not Meryl Streep’s character, Miranda Priestly.

Grenier disagreed at first, but he is now: “When all that [about Nate being the ‘real villain’ of the film] came out for the first time, I couldn’t figure it out. I did not understand it. Maybe it was because I wasn’t mature as a man, just as Nate probably could have enjoyed a little growth. I was just as immature as he was back then so I couldn’t see his flaws but, after taking the time to think it over and having a lot of deliberation online, I can understand the truth from that perspective. Nate hadn’t grown up, but Andy had… she needed more out of life, and she was getting it. He couldn’t support her like she needed because he was a fragile and hurt boy…. in the name of all Nates: Come on! Intensify it! “

Hathaway was a little nicer in his assessment of Nate and his reaction to Andy not making his birthday dinner because of work: “I don’t think everyone is completely honest with them. themselves about their own poutine, ”she said. “Nate was pouting on his birthday because his girlfriend wasn’t there!” Looking back, I’m sure he wishes he had made a different choice, but who doesn’t? We have all been kids at different times. We all need to live, to let live and to do better!

Film writer Aline Brosh McKenna revealed that several scenes between Nate and Andy were initially written differently. “The scene where Andy missed Nate’s birthday and comes up with a cupcake, we originally had 20 things there,” she said. “It was going to be that they were all going to a concert and she showed up late, but this stuff was too expensive. The cheapest way to let him down was to miss his birthday and walk into that apartment with the cupcake. We have had several versions of it. The movie ended with a slightly more upbeat scene with Nate, plus a reconciliation. They are so young and they choose spouses for their lives, but we know 25 year olds are not in that position…. I had written a more conventional ending where they walk through the park together or something.

Grenier revealed that the final scene of the two, where Andy and Nate met at the end of the film to discuss their relationship, was originally supposed to contain a kiss. Hathaway pushed to change it. “It was a testimony to Anne: [she and I were supposed to kiss in the grilled cheese] scene she worked on, saying, “I just don’t think it’s fair… I just don’t feel like we’re at this point in our relationship. There is too much history. She was right. We gave up that privacy for something more family-friendly, ”he said.
