Anne Hathaway is setting the record straight about rumours of a sequel to “The Devil Wears Prada.”
When Hathaway, 39, walked the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie “Armageddon Time” in New York City on Wednesday, she was asked if a sequel to her hit film from 2006 was in the works.
Fans shouldn’t hold out hope for a sequel, the actress made it clear.
Hathaway told Entertainment Tonight that there would not be a second movie. “Not going to happen. We literally can’t do it. Not going to happen. It is real.
There are more movies. There will be more movies to come. We can just watch “The Devil Wears Prada” once more.”
Photos of Hathaway sitting next to Anna Wintour, who was the model for Meryl Streep’s character Miranda Priestly in “The Devil Wears Prada,” in the front row at the Michael Kors fashion show during New York Fashion Week last month sparked rumours of a sequel.
Anne Hathaway wore a brown leather coat with a crocodile pattern over a black turtleneck dress for the show. Her hair was also styled in a similar way.
Fans noticed that the outfit looked a lot like the brown leather jacket and black turtleneck sweater that her character Andy Sachs wears in the last scene of “The Devil Wears Prada.” In the movie scene, Andy had bangs that hung over her forehead, just like Hathaway did at fashion week.
Hathaway, on the other hand, said that her “Devil Wears Prada” moment at NYFW was just a happy accident.
She told ET, “I wish I were this smart.” “I wish I had this, I don’t know, Machiavellian bent and could move all the chess pieces. The truth is that it was the outfit that came with it that fit, and that hairstyle went best with it. And it turns out that “The Devil Wears Prada” is a very popular movie. It was funny how things worked out. As I was leaving, I thought, “I wonder if anyone will notice?”
She said, “I don’t really think about it, but it was a beautiful kind of thing. If anything, it showed how much people love the movie and how important it is to them, which is a great thing to know. I just feel so lucky.”
The comedy-drama from 2006 marked its 15th anniversary of being made last year. Director David Frankel said that the part of Hathaway was first offered to Rachel McAdams, but she didn’t want it and said no three times.
