Emily Blunt filmed a promotional video for her Vogue interview in which she talks about the upcoming movie Mary Poppins Returns. But Vogue begged that The Devil Wears Prada should not be associated with the broadcast
It's been 12 years since she was brilliant – but brutally – parodied in the popular Hollywood film The Devil Wears Prada.
But the anger of Anna Wintour, the chief designer of the British Vogue editor, has clearly not softened over time.
Emily Blunt – who played a suppressed assistant to the icy magazine editor with eerie resemblances with Mrs Wintour in the blockbuster of 2006 – is on the cover of December's US Vogue.
She also filmed a promotional video for her interview, in which she talks about her role in the coming film Mary Poppins Returns.
But a press release issued to promote the interview contains a bold message: & # 39; The video will be deleted for broadcasting as long as The Devil Wears Prada is NOT used in naming or naming conventions linked to the broadcast. ;
When The Devil Wears Prada was released, Ms. Wintour declined to comment on claims that & # 39; editrix & # 39; Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep, was based on her.
Insiders said that Ms. Wintour & # 39; Furious & # 39; was the image of a tyrant who complains when her coffee is not at the right temperature, suffers from wilting consequences for her minors and throws her fur coat at them when she enters the office.
Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada – a blockbuster film from 2006 based on Lauren Weisberger's novel from 2003, based on her experience as a trainee at Vogue
The film was based on the bestseller novel 2003 by Lauren Weisberger.
Weisberger has admitted that the character of the & # 39; devilish & # 39; magazine boss was based on characters she met while working as an intern at Vogue, but has never confirmed that Mrs Wintour was her inspiration.
The American Vogue of next month shows Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins on the cover, but editor Anna Wintour does not have a sense of humor & # 39; as far as Blunt & # 39; s previous movie The Devil Wears Prada is concerned
When Streep was asked last year for Mrs. Wintour during a Vogue interview whether the British journalist was the inspiration for her "most challenging character", the Vogue editorial team came up with the idea to say: & # 39; No. No. We will not go there, Meryl. & # 39;
One source told The Mail on Sunday last night: & # 39; Anna always detested her performance in The Devil Wears Prada. She thinks it devalues her as a woman and devalues her performance.
& # 39; She really has a good sense of humor. But she has no sense of humor as far as The Devil Wears Prada is concerned. & # 39;
In her Vogue interview, Ms. Blunt speaks honestly about how intimidating it was to follow in the footsteps of Julie Andrews, who played in the original Mary Poppins film from 1964.
