Anne Hathway Was Ninth Choice For Devil Wears Prada


So, you’ve presumably watched the iconic modern masterpiece that is The Devil Wears Prada.

I watch it every year! Drunk on a plane! If I can!

Well, consider this knowledge that Anne Hathaway revealed on last night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race: She was not first choice for the role of Andy “cerulean sweater” Sachs…

…Nay, she was ninth. NINTH!

“I will give you some tea: I was the ninth choice for The Devil Wears Prada,” she told contestant Rosé. “But I got it! Hang in there, never give up.”

We do know that the top choice for Andy was Rachel McAdams — who apparently turned down the part many times.

And, personally, I’d like to imagine that Anne’s interactions with whoever did cast her went a little something like this:

“Anne Hathaway wanted this part so badly, but it was a little harder to get her approved, because the powers up at the studio did not realize what a strong audience she did have behind her,” Fox production chief Elizabeth Gabler previously told Indie Wire. “She campaigned for this part. She knew she wasn’t the first choice. She didn’t just wait for it.”

Don’t stop believing, I guess?
