Streep Left Mark on the Set of The Devil Wears Prada

Meryl Streep

After his professional life as a family practice physician, Manuel Marquez, M.D. has worked as a paraeducator for special-needs children in Ventura, California public schools, and as a tour director for Cuba and the national parks of the western United States. Outside his career pursuits, Manuel Marquez, M.D., is a movie buff, and his favorite actress is Meryl Streep.

Lauren Weisberger, the author of The Devil Wears Prada, and screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna, who adapted the novel to the big screen, recently shared their observations about what Meryl Streep was like when at work on the set of the film.

Weisberger recalls that Streep was laser focused on the set, reflecting something of a parallel between the actress and her role as editor Miranda Priestly. While Streep was admittedly warmer than her character, Weisberger said that her interactions with the actress were strictly professional and that Streep was all business on the set.

In her interview with Vanity Fair magazine, McKenna evoked the stark contrast between the Streep she met when the script was first being discussed and the one who showed up on the set. According to McKenna, Streep so deeply threw herself into the role of Miranda Priestly that the screenwriter actually said she found herself somewhat frightened by the extent of Streep’s metamorphosis into the icy cold character.

In addition to the rave critical reviews of her performance, Streep would go on to receive her 14th Oscar nomination for the role.
