Anne Hathaway Celebrates The Devil Wears Prada's 10th Anniversary: 'The Movie Changed My Life'
Anne Hathaway posted a tribute to the film on her Instagram
Gird your loins! The Devil Wears Prada is officially 10 years old.
“What else can I say about the movie that changed my life? Thank you #thedevilwearsprada and happy 10 year anniversary!! (don’t let this make you feel old- good style is eternal xx),” she wrote alongside a GIF of Meryl Streep as her iconic character Miranda Priestly.
And while it may be hard to imagine anyone but Hathaway, 33, in the role of the fashion-challenged assistant, it was previously revealed that the actress almost missed out on the part.
In fact, the filmmakers wanted Rachel McAdams, at first.

“I had to be patient. I wasn’t the first choice,” Hathaway said in a Variety tell-all on the film.
In the end, however, everything paid off: The film rocketed Hathaway to stardom, alongside her costar Emily Blunt. It also snagged Streep her 12th Oscar nomination and went on to gross $326 million worldwide.
