This Deleted Scene from ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Makes Us Question the Meaning of Life
Fact: There's no chicer ice queen than Meryl Streep's Devil Wears Prada character, Miranda Priestly, but a deleted scene from the film just surfaced showing a glaring crack in her glacial facade.
Buzzfeed's Spencer Althouse sent shock waves through the Twittosphere when he shared a never-before-seen deleted clip from the iconic film on Monday.
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 pic.twitter.com/6Zkr6UxHQO? Spencer Althouse (@SpencerAlthouse) August 28, 2017
The deleted scene shows Miranda's inebriated husband making a fool of himself and Andy stepping in to distract from the debacle. As Andy listens to a man blather on, she catches eyes with Miranda, who does something so un-Miranda-like, it literally ruins the whole film—she mouths,“Thank you.” Gasp!!
In the real final cut of the movie, however, Andy (Anne Hathaway) is stuck at the Met Gala-esque event with Emily (Emily Blunt), and they're both expected to feed Miranda names of important people. Emily slips up and forgets someone's name, allowing Andy to come to the rescue and glide into her boss's good graces. End scene.
Thank goodness the editors cut that scene, because it has no place in the cinematic perfection that is The Devil Wears Prada.
That is all.
