Nothing Like Wintour
The Devil Wears Prada opens today nationwide and the film is based on the novel that was written by one of Anna Wintour's former assistants. Meryl Streep plays the "Wintour-like" character in the film, but she insists that she didn't use the Vogue ediatrix as inspiration. Meryl said:
"I know the book was based on an assistant's view of Anna Wintour, but it didn't interest me to do a documentary on Anna Wintour, and I don't know anything about her. I only met her at the first benefit screening. She was a good sport, but I think she'd been told that I don't resemble her. It was much more fun for me to make the uberboss out of a (combination of people), so that's what I did."
