 ‘Ultimately, it’s not about you,’ The Devil Wears Prada star said. ‘It’s about what story we are telling and how you fit into that story. 

‘That’s my job as an actor… You’re not really a soldier. You’re not really a murderer. 

‘You’re pretending. Do you wanna be a soldier? Go join the f***ing army.’ 

Tucci starred in the 2006 David Frankel-directed flick, The Devil Wears Prada, alongside an A-list cast that included Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt.
