Oscar winner Anne Hathaway has been in countless movies since she first started acting in the early 2000s; however, the actress recently revealed the one film on her list she wanted her children to watch. She married Adam Sulman as far back as 2012 and has two children, Jonathan, six, and two-year-old Jack, from her marriage to the actor.
She starred in Roald Dahl’s “The Witches” towards the end of 2020, and according to Hathaway, that was one movie she did not want her sons to see until they were at least 30. In a recent interview, however, the actress revealed the project she was particularly proud of and couldn’t wait to show her children.

Anne Hathaway Wants Her Kids To Watch ‘The Devil Wears Prada’
On Monday, Hathaway joined SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show” and talked about her decades-old career in the movie industry. The “Ella Enchanted” actress also named the one movie that she wanted her two children to see one day. While many titles come to mind, Hathaway revealed that she thought “The Devil Wears Prada” was the perfect film to show her children.
The actress starred in the David Frankel-directed film as far back as 2006. It saw her play Andy Sachs and act alongside Meryl Streep, who played a powerful fashion magazine editor named Miranda Priestly. The film was adapted from Lauren Weisberger’s similarly titled novel, released in 2003.
Upon its release, “The Devil Wears Prada” received several accolades, including an Oscar nomination for Streep for the role of Best Actress. It was one of the highest-grossing films in 2006, with a figure of over $329 million.
She Says ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Is ‘Well Crafted’
The film’s audience was obviously not the only ones who enjoyed it, judging from Hathaway’s comment about the 2006 project. She revealed that she was “really excited” to show it to her children and described it as a “joy” and “so well crafted.”
“I am really excited to show them ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ It’s such a good movie,” the actress said per HuffPost. “And I say that you know, with complete humility, I’m a small part in that film. “It’s David Frankel, our director. It’s Meryl Streep. I mean, you know, Stanley [Tucci], Emily [Blunt], everyone ― Patricia Field.”
“It’s just such a joy of a film, and it’s so well-crafted, and it’s so funny, and I love what it’s about,” Hathaway added. “And I think that it holds up well, and the look of it is fantastic,” Hathaway continued.
Anne Hathaway Doesn’t Want Her Children To Watch ‘The Witches’
In a 2020 interview with People Magazine, Hathaway revealed a project she was involved in that she would do her best to keep away from her children. At the time, “The Witches” had just been released, and the actress was doing her media rounds to promote the film.
Hathaway played the Grand High Witch in the fantasy and was particularly cautious about children watching it because of her bone-chilling smile. “Everybody else’s children can see it, but my kids can’t see this movie until they’re like 30 because every time I smile, they’re just going to freak,” she said.
While talking to Access Hollywood, Hathaway made a similar comment saying, “I will never show my children this film,” she insisted. “If they discover it on their own, that is beyond me. I can’t let them see this.”
There Would Be No ‘The Devil Wears Prada 2’
Hathaway attended the recently concluded New York Fashion week and chose a particularly interesting outfit to wear to the event. The actress had on a black turtleneck top under a brown leather jacket. She completed the familiar look with a skirt and hair styled up with a bang.
The look was startlingly reminiscent of an outfit Hathaway’s character, Sachs, wore in “The Devil Wears Prada.” It was no surprise that she received a slew of questions concerning whether the popular movie would be getting a sequel. However, Hathaway quickly nipped it in the bud.
While talking to Entertainment Tonight, Hathaway said, “There’s not going to be a sequel. It’s not gonna happen. It’s just like, we can’t do it. It’s not gonna happen. It exists. There are other films. There will be other films. We can just watch that one [The Devil Wears Prada] again.”
