Emily Blunt described The Devil Wears Prada as an overnight shift in her life

During an episode of Variety’s Actors on Actors, appearing alongside Brian Cox from Succession, the actress talked about one of her famous movies; The Devil Wears Prada, in which she appeared alongside Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep.

She said, “The Devil Wears Prada! It was just an extraordinary overnight shift in my life when that came out.” She went into detail about how it felt like to work alongside Meryl Streep, as she stated,

“She’s amazing and was slightly terrifying in that film. She said it was one of the first times she’d tried Method acting. But it made her so miserable, playing Miranda.”

When Brian Cox said to her that he told Meryl Streep that he didn’t like her because he was jealous of her being good, Blunt said that she felt the same way about him. She added,“You do keep us guessing, from that caustic, fiery writer in Adaptation, and then what you did with Abbott in Bourne Supremacy. You just feel this sense of foreboding.” 

Talking about the method acting part, Cox said,

“What’s important is really what’s underneath. There’s this whole debate about method acting and all that. I’m all for whatever gets you through the day. But the great thing is how you transmit energy. If you hit it right, it just works. That’s the most important thing that we have as actors, that ability to go into something very quickly and come out of it. Not to dwell.”

“This year, I’m not working. I worked quite a bit last year and my oldest baby is 9, so we’re in the last year of single digits. And I just feel [like] there are cornerstones to their day that are so important when they’re little. And it’s, ‘Will you wake me up? Will you take me to school? Will you pick me up? Will you put me to bed?’ And I just need to be there for all of them for a good stretch. And I just felt that in my bones.”
