It's been 11 years since the premiere of The Devil Wears Prada and fans are still finding opportunities to recite the iconic quotes any chance they get. ("Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.") But do you know what went into the iconic movie? Here, 50 things you never knew about the making of the film. That is all.
The movie is based on a book written by Lauren Weisberger, the former assistant to the editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour.
The crew went through hundreds of twins before they found the right pair for the roles.
She was mentioned in the book for giving Miranda a Christmas present.
Gisele would act in the film as long as her character was not a model.
Lennon had to turn down the role due to conflicts with filming Reno 911.
The production team apparently felt she wasn't fit to play the part.
The crew decided that Lewis wasn't quite right for the role.
Sykes is now a writer and was a former assistant to Anna Wintour.
Emily was in Los Angeles auditioning for Eragon when Prada auditions were taking place. At the last minute, her agent put her on a tape for Prada. She flew home thinking all of her auditions were unsuccessful. But Frankel loved her, and called her house to offer her the part. Her mom picked up and said she was out at a bar (she was upset about the audition). "I was in some dive club in London," Blunt said. "I called him back from the bathroom. He said, 'Listen I would have cast you off the tape, but the studio wants to see you one more time. Can you do what you did but dress the part more?'"
The front of the Elias-Clarke building (the home of the magazine in the film) was filmed at the McGraw-Hill building in Manhattan.
