Emily Blunt Reveals Some Excellent 'Devil Wears Prada' Trivia

It has been seven years since Emily Blunt played Miranda Priestly's number one assistant in* The Devil Wears Prada*. It's a role she will never be able to get away from, thanks to quotable lines such as 'some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?' and 'I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese.'

Emily Blunt has revealed the unlikely source behind one of her most repeated Devil Wears Prada one-liners ... a mum in a supermarket.

In an interview on Howard Stern's Sirius XM program she said: “I like to soak up people on the street. I guess I steal from people I meet. Like, I saw a mother speaking to her child in a supermarket when we were shooting that film. And it’s a line that gets quoted back to me now. She yelled at her kid and she kind of opened and closed her hand and she goes [in harsh American accent], ‘Yeah, I’m hearing this, and I want to hear this.’ I went and put it in a movie, when Anne Hathaway is kind of talking to me, and I just told her that [to make her shut up].”
