Meryl Streep Almost Wasn’t Cast in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Because She Didn’t Have a Sense of Humor

Meryl Streep, legendary queen of the silver screen, almost missed out on her chance to sashay down the runway in The Devil Wears Prada alongside Anne Hathaway.

Picture this: Meryl, the seasoned icon, was about to slip into the fabulous stilettos of Miranda Priestly, the ice queen editor-in-chief of Runway Magazine. Little did she know, her destiny hung in the balance, teetering on the edge of a laughter precipice.

In a shocking twist, producer Wendy Finerman spilled the beans on the Hollywood Gold podcast, revealing that some misguided soul out there doubted Meryl’s comedic prowess. Yes, you heard it right—someone questioned whether Meryl, the acting maestro, could sprinkle a dash of humor onto her illustrious repertoire.

Wendy, defender of the Merylverse, recounted the jaw-dropping moment when naysayers called her up, exclaiming, “Are you out of your mind? She’s never been funny a day in her life!” Oh, the audacity!

While the world was certain that Anne Hathaway was the perfect fit for the role, a cloud of uncertainty loomed over Meryl’s comedic capabilities. But fear not, for Wendy was the unsung hero who stood her ground, firmly disagreeing with the naysayers.

In her defense, Wendy declared, “And Meryl, people thought we were crazy.” She acknowledged that stepping into Miranda’s stilettos was uncharted territory for Meryl, but hey, that’s what made it all the more amusing and unexpected—a comedic adventure in the fashionista’s playground.

The untold tale of how Meryl Streep’s laughter credentials were questioned, but in the end, she strutted down the runway of hilarity, leaving everyone in stitches and proving that even the most legendary actresses can master the art of the devilish chuckle. All’s well that ends with a fashionable giggle, darling!
