8 Stars Who Were Almost Cast in the Devil Wears Prada
Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep will forever be remembered by their roles in The Devil Wears Prada, but imagine what the film would have been like with different actresses in their place. It might actually come as a shock to most fans that Rachel McAdams was Fox's first choice to play Andy, but there are plenty of other stars who were considered for the lead characters. In honor of the film's 10-year anniversary this year, we're looking back at all the actors who almost made the cut.
During an interview with ELLE magazine, the actress revealed that she actually turned down the role of Andy.
Lewis also auditioned for the part of Andy, but was of course beat out by Hathaway.
The Homeland star was yet another actress up for the role of Andy.
Leary was reportedly up for the roles of both Nigel and Christian, but eventually turned them both down due to scheduling conflicts with his TV show, Rescue Me.
The actor reportedly turned down the chance to play Nigel as well.
Lennon almost nabbed Stanley Tucci's role, but had to back out since he was already busy filming Reno 911.
Imagine how different the movie would have been with Mirren as Miranda Priestly. The actress was originally considered for the part before it went to Streep.
The Fifty Shades Darker actress was also considered for the role of the snobby editor in chief of Runway magazine.
