Often times, I find deleted scenes to be the most intriguing parts of a film’s production. What didn’t the directors include in their final product and why? Would the movie be drastically different had the scene not been cut? So many questions.
Though, one film I hadn’t really considered this possibility for was The Devil Wears Prada. That is, until one Twitter user shared a minute of unseen footage from the movie and completely blew the internet’s mind.
There’s no denying that The Devil Wears Prada is a timeless classic…
Miranda Priestly would accept no less.
With several iconic lines.
She doesn’t have all day Andrea.
And hilarious moments.
But what we didn’t know, is that there’s an entire deleted scene floating around in the universe and it changes EVERYTHING.
Twitter user Spencer Althouse recently shared this deleted footage on his account and our minds are blown.
The cut in question was taken from that notorious scene at the charity benefit.
You know the one Andy missed Nate’s birthday for?
And it feels like an entirely different film. For starters, Emily tells Andy she can leave early…
So out of Emily’s infamously self-absorbed character.
Then, Miranda’s husband stumbles in appearing drunk and complaining about the party.
Miranda rushes to his side to comfort him—also totally uncharacteristic.
And he rudely pokes fun at Irv Ravitz, the chairman of Elias Clark.
But fortunately, Andy comes to the rescue by diverting Ravit’s attention.
Quick thinking, Andy.
Then, perhaps the weirdest moment of all, Miranda THANKS Andy.
Miranda doesn’t thank anyone, especially not Andy!
Needless to say, fans are airing their thoughts all over Twitter.
Of course, Miranda is never too shocked by anything.
A deleted scene? Groundbreaking.
