Rachel McAdams was meant to be ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ protagonist

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ almost had a different leading lady. In fact, Rachel McAdams was originally the actress film execs wanted to sign as loveable protagonist Andy.

Cast and crew from the hit movie came together this week to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the film, and director David Frankel told Entertainment Weekly that the actress turned down the role three times.

“The studio was determined to have her, and she was determined not to do it,” he said.

The 2006 film starred Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly, a powerful fashion magazine editor, and Anne Hathaway as Andrea “Andy” Sachs, a college graduate who goes to New York City and lands a job as Priestly’s co-assistant.
