Back in 2006, the model was approached about the role when the film’s writer noticed Gisele on her plane in the middle of a flight.

“The way I got this, I was flying to Los Angeles and the lady who was writing this movie came to me and said, ‘I’m doing this movie Devil Wears Prada“Gisele explained in a Life in Looks interview with British Vogue.

The writer, Lauren Weisberger, explained that the film was all about fashion and she was planning on casting some models – but Gisele immediately turned her down.

“I’m like, ‘I’m not interested,'” Gisele said. “‘I’m not gonna play a model, I do that every day; that’s already a role I play.'”

Lauren persisted, telling Gisele she would still love to have her, and suggested she could write a unique part just for the model – and that’s exactly what she did.

Pretty soon, Gisele’s team got a phone call explaining that there was a role for her playing an assistant in the office.
