- Movie News -'Pop Chaser' Chats 'Prada's Very Bad Boyfriend, Bennifer's Kiss, & More
Whether you loved or hated Miranda Priestley, we can all agree on one thing: Andy's boyfriend was the real villain of The Devil Wears Prada, right?
Ungrateful, pretentious, self-important... in this year of our lord, 2021, it's hard to watch Adrian Grenier's Nate and not see him for truly bad boyfriend that he is, despite the 2006 film painting him as Andy's sensitive other half. (So, your girlfriend is not supposed to pick up a phone call from her boss?) And, it appears as though Grenier himself agrees — in Entertainment Weekly's oral history of the film, he cops up to the fact that, yes, Nate was as misdirected as a plaid newsboy cap. As the actor said:
Nate probably could’ve used a little growing up. I was just as immature as him at the time, so I couldn’t see his shortcomings, but, after taking time to reflect and much deliberation online, I can realize the truth in that perspective.
So my Pop Chaser co-host Allison Piwowarski and I spend at least part of our episode on Tuesday applauding the actor — when we're not applauding the release of Hulu's The Housewife and The Hustler, and grimacing at the very curious video of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.
As Allison said, they certainly are... something.

Cheers to your morning, and boo to Nate!
