Meryl Streep Quit Method Acting After ‘Prada’ Because Miranda Priestly Made Her ‘So Depressed’

Meryl Streep told Entertainment Weekly during an oral history for “The Devil Wears Prada” that playing fashion magazine icon Miranda Priestly was the last time she attempted Method acting. Streep was an icy presence on set during the entirety of principal photography on “The Devil Wears Prada,” so much so that she removed herself from all group activity when the cameras weren’t rolling.

“It was horrible! I was [miserable] in my trailer,” Streep said about the experience. “I could hear them all rocking and laughing. I was so depressed! I said, ‘Well, it’s the price you pay for being boss!’ That’s the last time I ever attempted a Method thing.”

Anne Hathaway said Streep never made her feel “intimidated” despite the Method acting, adding, “I always felt cared for. I knew that whatever she was doing to create that fear, I appreciated [because] I also knew she was watching out for me.
