The Prada shoe 'doesn't fit' the star

The star of 'The Devil Wears Prada' says she steers clear from the luxurious label in real life.

Meryl Streep confessed that unlike her character in the film, she only owns one pair of Prada shoes and she doesn't wear them often.

Speaking to French publication Madame Figaro, the actress confessed: 'They make my feet hurt.'

However, she admits it's not the footwear's fault or Prada's for that matter.

'They are exquisitely made,' Meryl added, saying she blames her feet.

'I've got my mother's feet,' she told the magazine.

The 57-year-old stars opposite Anna Hathaway in the screen adaptation of the bestseller book written by a former Vogue worker.

It is believed that Meryl's character is loosely based on the American editor of the glossy publication, the glamorous Anna Wintour.
