And even for them, filming this film opened up new perspectives: directors began to offer them film roles more often.

1. Emily Blunt (40 years old)
Emily's character is Miranda's senior assistant. She is humble and scrupulous. And although the actress was given a supporting role at the time, after filming she began to get leading roles. For example, Young Victoria, The Wolf Man, Mary Poppins Returns, A Quiet Place 2 and Jungle Cruise. Almost no high-profile premiere is complete without Blunt's participation. She is also a happy mother of two and the wife of The Office star John Krasinski.
2. Anne Hathaway (40 years old)
American theatre and film actress Anne Hathaway played the role of young and ambitious Andrea, who dreams of a career in journalism and finds herself under the guidance of the strict Miranda Priestley.
Thanks to her role in The Devil Wears Prada, Anne was able to demonstrate the range of her abilities and attract the attention of critics and directors. She has become one of the most sought-after actresses of our time. This star is also the mother of two sons and the wife of actor Adam Shulman.
3. Meryl Streep (73 years old)
The American actress Meryl Streep, who has been nominated for an Oscar 21 times, played the role of Miranda Priestley. She is the influential New York editor-in-chief of the fictional fashion magazine Runway. Her character is a bossy madam who treats her young subordinates rudely. Thanks to her emotional depth and ability to fully embrace the role, Meryl did an excellent job. At the age of 73, she continues to impress audiences with her acting skills.
4. Stanley Tucci (62)
American stage and film actor, screenwriter, director and producer Stanley Tucci played the role of Nigel in the fashion film. He is the creative director of a magazine who is one of the few people sympathetic to Andrea. Since The Devil Wears Prada, he has played a number of notable supporting roles. For instance, in Julie and Julia: Making Happiness Happen by Prescription and The Lovely Bones. Much less often - the main characters. Tucci himself seems to be quite happy with it.
5. Simon Baker (53 years old)
Australian and American actor Simon Baker played the role of the handsome Christian Thompson, who fell in love with Andrea. Unlike other colleagues from the set of The Devil Wears Prada, Baker is less often called to work on big projects. But he often appears in music videos and commercials.
Another of the actor's most famous roles is Patrick Jane, the main character of The Mentalist. His character is an extremely intelligent, perceptive detective who skilfully unravels mysteries and lures criminals into his clever traps.
