As The Devil Wears Prada celebrated its 18th anniversary since its debut, Emily Blunt, star of Oppenheimer, has made it clear that she is not open to the idea of a sequel to the iconic film.
In a recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the 40-year-old actress conveyed her reluctance to pursue a follow-up to the blockbuster, emphasizing that the cast is content with the standalone nature of the original. Blunt firmly expressed her preference for preserving the cherished memories associated with the film.
During the podcast, Emily Blunt underscored the importance of safeguarding certain experiences within a protective bubble and suggested that some things are best left untouched. Her sentiment aligns with co-star Meryl Streep’s humorous response in a 2012 interview with Access Hollywood, where Streep quipped, “Yeah, if I don’t have to lose the weight,” injecting levity into discussions about a potential sequel.
Blunt’s stance reflects a desire to honor and maintain the integrity of The Devil Wears Prada, emphasizing the uniqueness and timelessness of the original production. Despite the clamor for sequels in the entertainment industry, Blunt advocates for preserving the special qualities that made the film a beloved classic.
