    In a recent interview with Variety, Hathaway explained how The Devil Wears Prada was her first role in a film that was aimed at an adult audience.

    Hathaway recalls hearing from producers who told her: “Whoa, you stood toe-to-toe with Meryl,” of her role as Andy. “I’m kind of the straight man, the observer,” Hathaway says. “I’m proud of what I did. But amongst the showy roles, it’s the quiet one. I think what people saw was promising—it made people want to see more.”

    Even though Hathaway didn't have to audition to play Andy, she said she "had to be patient" because she "wasn't the first choice." But when she finally got the offer, she was ecstatic.

    “I had some buddies over. I remember running out in my living room, half dressed, screaming—I got The Devil Wears Prada! I got The Devil Wears Prada!" she explained.
