This deleted scene from The Devil Wears Prada will blow your mind

Two words: GAME. CHANGER.

01 Sep 2017

It's been over a decade since The Devil Wears Prada hit the big screen and the world fell in love with Meryl Streep's ice queen character, Miranda Priestly, editor-in-chief of fictional magazine, Runway. But what if one newly unearthed scene changed everything we know her to be? That's exactly what has happened and the internet is freaking out.

A deleted scene from the classic chick flick has been making the rounds on social media overnight and everyone is confused AF because it sees Miranda showing a hint of humility and actually being pleasant towards her assistant, Andy (played by Anne Hathaway). Yep, really.

The unused clip is from the famous black tie gala event in the movie but rather than ending on its original bad note, it shows Andy preventing her boss's husband from causing a major scene and embarrassing her in front of Irv Ravitz, the CEO of the media company which owns Runway. In return, Miranda drops her frosty persona for a split second and mouths the words "thank you" to Andy.

Have a look...

GAME. CHANGER.

For most The Devil Wears Prada fans, the scene is a total curveball and adds a whole new layer to Miranda's personality. The Miranda we know and love simply does not have the words "thank you" in her vocabulary. And she's certainly not made vulnerable by her drunk husband. So are we glad they kept the scene out? Twitter certainly thinks so...

wow, i have never been so thankful a scene was cut from a movie. thank you devil wears prada gods 🙌🏽

Miranda's character was already softened compared to the book. This would have been a total departure on every conceivable level.
