Leo “just views Meryl as film royalty … although maybe royalty is not a compliment … but as such a special figure in the history of film,” Adam explained. “He didn’t like seeing her with the lower back tattoo, walking for a second naked.”
Adam said the Titanic star asked him something to the effect of, “Do you really need to show that?”
“And I was like: ‘It’s President Orlean; it’s not Meryl Streep,’” Adam recalled
Meryl “didn’t even blink” or “even bring it up,” he added.
In the movie, Meryl, plays a Donald Trump-esque president who downplays an imminent comet strike on Earth. Leo and Jennifer Lawrence portray scientists desperately trying to warn the world of the looming threat.
Jennifer revealed the reverence with which Meryl was treated on set last week, explaining that co-stars called her the GOAT (the Greatest of All Time), but Meryl thought they were literally calling her a goat.
