The 38-year-old actress starred as magazine assistant Andy Sachs in the film alongside Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt, but Anne has confessed she wasn’t the first choice for the role.
Speaking to the participants in ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’, Anne said, “I’ll give you some tea: I was the ninth choice for Devil Wears Prada. But I got it! Hold on, never give up. “
Rachel McAdams reportedly turned down the role, while Claire Danes and Juliette Lewis were also considered.
Anne previously talked about how patient she had to be to get the role.
She said in 2016: “I didn’t have to audition. I had to be patient. I wasn’t the first choice. “
When she found out she got the part, she said, “I put on a shirt, I had some friends. I remember running into my living room half dressed and screaming – I got ‘The devil wears Prada!’ I have ‘The Devil Wears Prada’! “
And while Anne loves the movie, she doesn’t think there should ever be a sequel.
She said, “I’m not sure this is the right question. Should be there? I would like to do a film with all these people again that is something completely different. But I think that maybe you hit the right note. It is good to leave it as it is. “
