Over a decade on from its release, we can safely say 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada is a cinematic diamond that has gifted us with many many things.
Watch the trailer for The Devil Wears Prada below. Post continues after video.
– Meryl Streep’s iconic ‘groundbreaking’ line as she expressed her utter disgust at the suggestion of “florals for spring”.
– A welcomed introduction to Emily Blunt’s glorious resting bitch face.
– The confidence to wear thigh-high boots to work.
– Useful knowledge surrounding the trickle down phenomenon of cerulean blue from haute couture to the racks of Bloomingdale’s.
The list goes on.
One gift we did not receive, however, was a satisfying end to the romantic storyline between Andy (Anne Hathaway) and Nate (Adrien Grenier). And to be honest, we’ve spent exactly 13 long years dwelling on it.
You see, we would have much preferred if Andy threw Nate’s eight-dollars-worth-of-Jarlsberg cheese toastie right in his face long before the credits rolled, but instead, she got back together with the grown man who launched a toddler-tantrum over the fact that his girlfriend couldn’t make it to his birthday party while in the midst of a work emergency.
As in, the guy who straight-up refused to accept his partner’s new-found interest in fashion, stylish haircut and oh, ambition in the early stages of a serious career in journalism she’d only been studying to achieve for several years.
Say it with us: Nate. Is. A Bad. Guy.
The evidence that points to Nate (and NOT Miranda Priestly) being the film’s villain is astounding, and here are the scenes that prove it:
His reaction to Andy scoring a job at Runway.
Nate – Andy’s boyfriend, roommate and lover, is obviously one of the first people she tells when she scores a job at Runway – a noted women’s magazine in New York and position many, many women would kill for, as the opening credits indicate.
