It’s all about patience!

Anne Hathaway Talks about the role she had to “fight tooth and nail for”

Anne Hathaway has recently revealed while answering a question on RuPaul’s Drag Race that she wasn’t the first choice for her iconic role in the fashion-based movie ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ The actress wasn’t even near and confessed that actually, she was the ninth choice of the makers.

During the appearance of Anne Hathaway on RuPaul’s Drag Race, a Contestant asked Hathaway if there were any roles she had to “fight tooth and nail for” to which she sarcastically replied, “I will give you some tea: I was the ninth choice for Devil Wears Prada,” she revealed. “But I got it! Hang in there, never give up.”

Anne Hathaway also revealed that the first choice of the makers for the role of Andy Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada was ‘The Notebook’ actress Rachel McAdams, who continuously declined the offer.

Back in 2007, Rachel talked about her decision with Elle magazine “I’m not going to make movies just to make movies. I have to be passionate about it. And at the same time, I can get very distracted when I’m working, and I like to get back to my life a lot.” Other then McAdams, Claire Danes and Juliette Lewis also auditioned for the role.

The Princess Diaries actress “Anne Hathaway” later told Variety how hard she had to work to get the role. She said “I had to be patient.”

The 38-year-old actress also said that she traced the words “hire me” in the sand of a zen garden plant of an executive to get their attention.

She also shared her experience when she got to know that she got the role. Hathway quoted “I was putting on a shirt,” she said. “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!”

Anne Hathaway is one of the most successful actresses in the industry and she has done an insanely good job. Some of her popular movies include One Day, The Intern, The Princess Diaries, Bride Wars, Get Smart, and many more. In The Devil Wears Prada, she worked with Meryl Streep, who played the role of Anne’s boss Miranda Priestly. Initially, Meryl declined the offer, but later on, accepted it when her fees got doubled.
