The Devil Wears Prada is one of the most iconic films of the noughties, neigh, of all time, and although we've seen it a million times, this girl's analysis of characters from the movie has got us looking at it in a whole new way...
We all know the plot of 'The Devil Wears Prada' like the back of our hand, evil genius editor of 'Runway' magazine Miranda Priestly, (AKA Meryl Streep) takes on Anne Hathaway as her new assistant, and she's immersed into the world of high fashion and fanciness, much to the frustration of her cooky lil' boyfriend, Nate, AKA Adrian Grenier.
It's a great film, in fact, we'd go as far as to say it's one of the most iconic films of the 2000's, and now, one Twitter user @harleivy has made a whole Twitter thread explaining how Miranda was no real witch, it was Andy's immature boyfriend with an 'inferiority complex' who was holding her back the whole time, and we're pretty convinced!
the real villain in the devil wears prada was andy's boyfriend, not miranda. he was a loser w an inferiority complex who couldn't stand the fact that his gf was on his way to becoming more successful than him, so he selfishly jeopardized all her achievements. in this essay i will— gabi (@harleivy) August 8, 2018
1.1) andy was a typical example of an insecure, self-centered dude who felt entitled to his gf's full attention, even above things that mattered to her, like building a successfull career as a writer. he perceived his feelings and opinions to be more important than her goals.— gabi (@harleivy) August 9, 2018
The thread drags both Andy's mates and her boyfriend for accepting the expensive designer gifts she treated them to but slamming her for 'changing' and missing events even though they knew full well she'd be fired if she'd left early.
She even labels Nate a 'selfish man baby' for dumping her when she had to go to Paris Fashion Week, and we're dying.
1.9) i don't blame andy for falling for that blonde guy. he was the one person in her life consistently appreciating the new version of herself she was so proud of, and even if his intentions weren't the best, i get that she *just* wanted someone to tell her she was great.— gabi (@harleivy) August 9, 2018
We never thought about it this way, and now that cupcake she brought to him late at night on his birthday doesn't feel so feeble anymore, and more like a busy girlfriend who was living their best life <3.
