The film follows a team of astronomers that must warn everyone about a comet heading towards Earth. In the film, Meryl Streep plays President Janie Orlean. The director, Adam McKay, opened up about the comedy and how Leonardo didn’t want Meryl to be nude in one of the scenes!

Adam said, “She is fearless. And yes, that is a body double. But you know who had a problem with it? Leo [DiCaprio]. Leo views Meryl as film royalty… although maybe royalty is not a compliment… but as such a special figure in the history of film.”

“He didn’t like seeing her with the lower back tattoo, walking for a second naked,” McKay continued. “He said something to me like, ‘Do you really need to show that?’ And I was like, ‘It’s President Orlean; it’s not Meryl Streep.’ But she didn’t even blink. She didn’t even bring it up.”
