This 'Devil Wears Prada' Deleted Scene Tells a Completely Different Story

By  | 


Over a decade after its release, pretty much everyone knows the basic plot line of The Devil Wears Prada. Andy, played by Anne Hathaway, gets a job as an assistant under icy magazine editor Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep. The entire movie hinges on their tense relationship, and Andy spends the better part of two hours trying to get into Miranda’s good graces, which finally happens right before the closing credits. But based on a recently rediscovered deleted scene, found by BuzzFeed‘s community manager Spencer Althouse, it could have been a totally different movie.

“I’m just seeing this deleted scene from The Devil Wears Prada for the first time, and honestly it changed the whole movie for me,” Althouse tweeted alongside the deleted clip from Miranda’s charity benefit scene, Refinery29 reports.

If you’re one of those people who has seen The Devil Wears Prada so many times that you can quote it line by line (guilty), you probably remember the gist of what goes down in the original version of the scene. Andy is stuck at a black tie event for the magazine helping a sick Emily feed their boss the names and details of the guests as they approach. Emily forgets an important piece of information, and Andy helps save the day. Miranda acknowledges it with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it smile, and then the scene is over. The whole thing is pretty uneventful.

In the new clip, though, Andy is shown diffusing a potentially even more awkward situation when Miranda’s husband comes over and starts making rude and aggressive comments to the CEO of the magazine’s parent company a.k.a. Miranda’s boss. Miranda steers him away, but not before mouthing “thank you” to Andy for helping smooth things over. Not exactly what you would imagine from a person who casually said things to this same assistant like, “you have no style” and “the details of your incompetence do not interest me,” right? Take a look:

Twitter has mixed feelings about this revelation, ranging from “WHAT?!? Whaaaaat?!” to “Why wasn’t this in the movie?!?” to “No wonder they deleted it. Undermined Miranda’s whole ice queen narrative.”

Regardless of whether you think this moment adds dimension to Miranda’s character or that it’s totally out of place and makes absolutely no sense, there’s one thing we can all agree on: This one, brief exchange would have completely changed the movie. That’s all.
