The Devil Wears Prada star spoke about the event during the Q&A after the premiere of her new movie Eileen at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend.

The actress brought up the incident when she said she wanted to work with Eileen director William Oldroyd after watching Florence Pugh’s 2016 drama Lady Macbeth, in which she plays a woman trapped in a loveless marriage with an old man.
“I thought it was an extraordinary job,” he said.
“I saw a study of female complications that really struck me, and I felt that Will was a filmmaker who could be trusted to tell complex stories, especially about women.”
Based on Otessa Moshfegh’s 2015 novel of the same name, Eileen follows a young woman who lives a horrible life in 1960s Boston. While working in a prison, a woman named Rebecca (Hathaway) joins the cast and changes Eileen’s life.

Last year, Anne recalled another incident early in her career that she’d rather forget, the people around her didn’t tell her that one of her red carpet outfits was sheer.
“I was very young once and dressed myself for an event and stepped on a red carpet and didn’t know my dress was sheer and I wasn’t wearing a bra,” she told Interview magazine. .
“It was a very long rug and none of the people on that photographer wall stopped to let me know or offer a jacket.”
He continued: “I am not naive. I don’t expect this but it’s something I would do for someone else if I saw it. And so, I would delete it just because it sucks.
