Meryl Streep's Funniest Moments On and Off Screen
4. "The Devil Wears Prada" is the best fashion hell
I'll say it: Meryl's performance as Miranda Priestly is potentially the funniest performance of the last decade. The brilliance of her work as grim fashion editor Miranda Priestly is you can tell she took every line that could've been a call for overwrought acting ("That's all!"; "Is it impossible to find a lovely, slender, female paratrooper? Am I reaching for the stars here?") and chose to make it as monotone and sinister as possible. Every exclamation is replaced by a period. That's why Meryl's brilliant and hilarious.
