Emily Blunt Reveals Where She Got Her Vicious Devil Wears Prada Insult From

The Devil Wears Prada was a phenomenal movie. There’s no doubt about that. Emily Blunt revealed on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM program that she stole her character’s cutting lines from a real person. She said, “I guess I steal from people I meet. Like, I saw a mother speaking to her child in a supermarket when we were shooting that film. And it’s a line that gets quoted back to me now. She yelled at her kid and she kind of opened and closed her hand and she goes [in harsh American accent], ‘Yeah, I’m hearing this, and I want to hear this.’ I went and put it in a movie, when Anne Hathaway is kind of talking to me, and I just told her that [to make her shut up].”

She continued to explain,“For me, that’s what helps me . . . to feel what other people would feel in my skin. And other times I feel like it is the ultimate expression of empathy, to be so interested in people and empathize with them profoundly.”
