Anne Hathaway was 9th choice for starring The Devil Wears Prada

Anne Hathaway was not very high on the film studios list to play the lead role in The Devil Wears Prada from 2006, but the actress says that โ€œyou should never give upโ€ in life.

During Rupauls Drag Race Friday, a candidate asked Anne if she often had to fight for a role. โ€œHow long have you got,โ€ Anne joked, after which she told about the difficult audition for the fashion film in which Meryl Streep also played. โ€œLet me tell you what: I was the ninth choice for Devil Wears Prada. But I got it! Hold on, dont give up.โ€

In the film, Anne plays the role of novice journalist Andy Sachs, who becomes assistant to the ruthless editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) of the fashion magazine Runway. Striep received a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination for this role.
