The real villain of The Devil wears fashion
Among all the comments, perhaps the most anticipated moment by the fans was when they talked about the real villain of the film. As fans always debated on social media, Nate, the character played by Adrian Grenier, was recognized as the antagonist of the story.
“Nate hadn’t grown up, but Andy had. I didn’t understand it at the time, but over the years you understand why. I was just as immature as he was at the time, so I couldn’t see his flaws. She needed more from life, and she was getting it. He couldn’t support her like his girlfriend needed him, because he was a hurt and fragile boy.”Grenier explained.
For her part, Anne Hathaway pointed out that although he was a bit immature, he could understand where Nate’s insecurity was coming from in the plot. “I don’t think everyone is completely honest with themselves, but who is? We have all been immature at different times. We have to live, let live and do the best we can with our things, “said the actress.
In The devil wears Prada, Nate is the boyfriend of Andy Sachs (Hathaway), a chef who finally separates from the protagonist by claiming that he became a person ruled by his boss and that he gives more importance to his work than to his Romance.
