It's hard to believe, but it's been 10 whole years since Miranda Priestly first pursed her lips at her lowly assistant Andy Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada. But for fashion girls everywhere, the film—which follows a smart, decidedly unstylish Northwestern graduate (Anne Hathaway) who lands a job (the one "a million girls would kill for") assisting the editor in chief of a high fashion glossy (Meryl Streep)—is still just as relevant today.
So when we recently spoke with Adrian Grenier at Naked Juice's event to raise hunger awareness in N.Y.C., we had to ask the actor—who starred as Nate, Andy's chef boyfriend in the 2006 movie—what he enjoyed most about making the film, on the occasion of its anniversary. "I'm not gonna lie, I enjoyed manhandling the pots and pans," he said. "And because I love to cook, I actually knew my way around. So I really enjoyed being able to cook for Anne Hathaway." Cue the collective awws.
And since Nate fully embraces Andy's sartorial makeover in the film, does Grenier himself care what women wear? "I think everybody cares, even though they may not recognize it," he said. "My biggest [fashion] revelation came in my mid-20s, when I realized that, since I enjoy when a woman dresses up, I should probably do the same thing. At that point, I made a choice to start dressing better and buttoned up a little bit more. Just a little bit, not all the time."
