Actress Meryl has revealed she would reprise her role as Miranda Priestley should a film sequel be made to ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ - but says she would have to lose weight first.

Fans were delighted when news was announced that Lauren Weisberger was penning a sequel to her debut novel ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, and hope that a big-screen sequel too will also happen.

Oscar winner Meryl says she will reprise her screen-stealing role as the aforementioned 'Devil' and Runway editrix Miranda Priestly, should a silver-screen adaptation be made of ‘Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns’ - although there is one issue currently standing between Streep and Priestley's sample-size Prada threads.

Speaking to Hollywood Access at the Women in Film Crystal and Lucy Awards - where she was feting fellow Oscar-winning actress and friend Viola Davis - Streep at first stumbled when questioned on the possibility of stepping back into Priestley's perfectly-polished shoes. "Yeah, no. No. Is there one? I've never heard about it," she said, before quickly adding, "But sure. I mean, I'd have to lose the f*cking weight, but yes, I guess I would do that."

Becoming Miranda Priestly once again may involve some serious method eating on Streep's part, but fans will surely think it will definitely be worth it.
