The actress said that Emily Blunt’s portrayal of the terror of Meryl Streep’s role in the movie was based on a very true experience.

The three-time Oscar winner is “amazing” and “slightly terrifying” in the movie, according to Blunt. But portraying Miranda was so painful for her. According to Blunt, the renowned actress’s portrayal of Anna Wintour was the first time she tried method acting. But Meryl Streep claims that it was her last as well. “It was awful!” In an interview with the media for the movie’s 15th anniversary, Streep, 73, made this statement.

The Iron Lady actress told a media outlet that even though she was disconsolate, sitting in the trailer, she would hear Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci, and the rest of the ensemble “laughing and rocking.” Streep went on that she felt miserable but she would take it as the price of playing the boss. Which would be her final effort put into her “method thing”.

In his conversation with Blunt, Brian expressed his adoration for both Meryl Streep and The Devil Wears Prada. Cox portrayed Logan Roy on HBO’s Succession, an equivalently feared media magnate to Streep’s Priestly. The movie, according to Blunt, signified “a horrifying overnight shift”, while Cox declared that he thoroughly admired it.

The 77-year-old actor said that it also meant working with a few of the most amazing actresses of all time for which he envied her. Further adding that it was his goal before he passes to perform with Meryl Streep.
