Although its been almost 12 years since its release, 2006’s comedy-drama The Devil Wears Prada is still a widely beloved movie. The movie features an amazing performance by Meryl Streep, backed by then-rising stars Anne Hathaway, and Emily Blunt.

Talking recently with Jess Cagle on People TV, Blunt recalled filming the movie and how much she enjoyed it.

“We all just wept with laughter,” the 35-year-old actress told Jess Cagle. “I loved working with sweet Annie Hathaway and it was my first experience working Meryl [Streep] and Stanley Tucci who is now my brother-in-law.”

The Devil Wears Prada revolved around college graduate Andy (Hathaway) who lands a job as an assistant for powerful fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Streep). Emily Blunt played Priestly’s co-assistant Emily and was praised for “stealing nearly every scene she’s in,” while receiving a Golden Globes Award nomination in Best Supporting Actress category.

Although the role in the movie brought her first major breakthrough, Blunt doesn’t think The Devil Wears Prada sequel is a good idea.

“If everyone did it I would be up for it,” she said. “I almost hope it doesn’t [happen] because I think sometimes when you sequel everything kind of dilutes how special the original is.”

After The Devil Wears Prada, Emily Blunt went on to build a successful Hollywood career, appearing in movies like The Young Victoria, Looper, Edge of Tomorrow, and The Girl on the Train. After taking a break from feature films in 2017, Blunt will appear alongside her husband John Krasinski in the horror A Quiet Place. She will also portray Mary Poppins in the 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns.
