Anne Hathaway Says Nate Not A Villain Of ‘The Devil Wears Prada’
Anne Hathaway recently shared her thoughts about her character’s love interest in “The Devil Wears Prada.” It comes as many fans reportedly think that Nate was the villain of the film because of his behavior.
People said that the 39-year-old actress disagreed with the notion that the character was a villain. As noted, she shared her explanation during a recent engagement with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live.”
The magazine stated that the discussion began after fans asked Hathaway whether she agrees with the impression of the viewers. While the show host is said to have responded “yes,” adding that Nate “was” indeed a villain, she answered “no” before saying “sorry” for disagreeing.
During the exchange, the “Princess Diaries” actress explained that both Nate and Andy were “very young, and figuring things out” in the 2006 hit film.
She continued that while “he did behave like a brat,” she argued that she also behaved like one in her 20s before adding, “and I hopefully grew out of it.”
The magazine later quoted Anne Hathaway from the engagement, stating, “I think that that’s what we all do. And I wouldn’t want to be defined by my worst moment in my 20s, certainly, so I don’t hold Nate as a villain, actually.”
People recalled in its report, published Tuesday, that “The Devil Wears Prada” follows the life of the Northwestern journalism graduate, Andy Sachs, who becomes an assistant to Miranda Priestly, the “blunt and brutal” editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine.
As Andy navigates the demanding role, she finds her personal relationships slipping with both her friends and boyfriend, Nate. In the end, she ends up choosing neither her relationship nor her job as she settles into a role with which she is happy, as per the magazine.
Avid fans have reportedly been opposed to Nate’s character since the hit film’s release in 2006. As pointed out, many deem Andy’s boyfriend the true villain, not her boss, Miranda.
Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway addressed the talks about a potential sequel to the hit movie earlier this month. Unfortunately for the shippers, though, part two of “The Devil Wears Prada” will not happen, with the actress shutting the discussion down during an exchange with Entertainment Tonight.
The publication shared, at the time, that the “Interstellar” actress was asked about the matter on the red carpet at the premiere of her new film, “Armageddon Time.”
ET, in its report, published October 12, quoted Hathaway, saying, “There's not going to be a sequel."
It continues, "It's not gonna happen. It's just like, we can't do it. It's not gonna happen. It exists. There are other films. There will be other films. We can just watch that one [The Devil Wears Prada] again."
