Anne Hathaway weighs in on whether Nate was the true villain of The Devil Wears Prada

Anne Hathaway weighed in on whether Adrian Grenier’s character Nate Cooper was the true villain of her 2006 hit film The Devil Wears Prada during Monday night’s Watch What Happens Live.

Nate spends much of the movie frustrated that his journalist girlfriend Andy Sachs (Hathaway) is always at the beck and call of Runway magazine editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep).

‘No, I’m sorry. I don’t,’ the Oscar winner – turning the big 4-0 next month – replied.

‘I think they were both very young and figuring things out. And he did behave like a brat, but I also behaved like a brat in my twenties. I hopefully grew out of it, and I think that’s what we all do. I wouldn’t want to be defined by my worst moment in my 20s certainly. So I don’t hold Nate as a villain actually.’

David Frankel’s big-screen adaptation of Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel scored a 75% critic approval rating (out of 195 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes and amassed $326.7M at the global box office.

It was Anne’s second time appearing on the boozy Bravo talk show, and she gushed on Instagram: ‘I had so much fun with Victoria Beckham and Salty Spice herself, Andy Cohen.’

Last Saturday, Hathaway’s ‘incandescent buddy’ Jessica Chastain revealed she would love to remake Death Becomes Her with her someday.

‘I was just talking to Annie about this! It would be so fun to remake Death Becomes Her,’ the 45-year-old Oscar winner told Parade.

‘I’ll do either the Meryl Streep or Goldie Hawn role. You know, when it came out it was a huge flop. People thought it was garbage! But I think it’s a masterpiece.’

Robert Zemeckis’ 1992 campy zom-com might have been dismally-reviewed by critics but it was a special effects marvel, and it was hardly a flop (earning $149M of its $55M budget back).

The WeCrashed producer-star and Jessica co-starred as Esther Graff and Maryanne Trump in James Gray’s critically-acclaimed 1980-set flick Armageddon Time, which hits US theaters this Friday and UK theaters November 18.

The $15M-budget coming-of-age family drama – also starring Anthony Hopkins, Jeremy Strong, Tovah Feldshuh, and Banks Repeta – received a seven-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19.

The talented twosome also worked together in Christopher Nolan’s 2014 sci-fi flick Interstellar and in Benoît Delhomme’s upcoming psychological thriller Mothers’ Instinct.

On the personal front, Anne has two sons – Jonathan, 6; and Jack, nearly 3 – from her decade-long marriage to James Banks Design co-founder Adam Shulman.
