After calling Streep “fearless,” McKay said she used a body double for the scene. “You know who had a problem with this? Leo,” he claimed.

McKay said that DiCaprio objected to the scene because he “views Meryl as film royalty … though perhaps not a royalty compliment … but as a special person in film history.”

“He didn’t like seeing her with a lower back tattoo, walking around naked for a second. She said something to me: ‘Do you really need to show this?’ And I was like: ‘This is President Orlean, this is not Meryl Streep.'”

But according to McKay, it seems Streep didn’t care either way. ,[S]He didn’t even blink. He didn’t even pick it up.”
