Meryl Streep is no longer a stranger to the makeover on the big screen. The three-time Oscar winner stripped off his clothes for a skinny dip in the 1994 film Wild river and topless for a massage scene in the 1982 psychological thriller Still of the night.
Despite her past experience, co-star Leonardo DiCaprio had an issue with her character’s nude scene in the upcoming disaster comedy Don’t look up. It’s shocking that DiCaprio, by all means, had an affair with a woman over the age of 25 who was naked.
“He didn’t like seeing her with the tattoo on her lower back, walking for a second naked. He said something to me like, “Do you really need to show that?” “
Maybe DiCaprio objected because he adores Streep. They worked together for the first time in 1996 for the drama Marvin’s room, DiCaprio is in his early 20s, but now that he’s older, he may feel a certain responsibility to protect the people he admires, that is. McKay shared his thoughts on why DiCaprio was so opposed to the scene.
“Leo only sees Meryl as movie royalties… though the royalties may not be a compliment… but he’s an exceptional figure in the history of cinema. He doesn’t like seeing her with a tattoo on her lower back, walking naked for a second.”
Despite DiCaprio’s objections, Streep had no problem, and when the footage came out, she “didn’t even blink. She didn’t even bring it up.” From what we’ve heard so far, Streep seems to be very comfortable on set and is one of the few to find Jonah Hill Fart Machine Joke funny, or maybe it’s because Streep really isn’t buffed. McKay revealed that the person in the scene is not Streep, but rather a dual body. Either way, it was Streep’s call, not DiCaprio’s.
Don’t look up follows two junior astronomers played by DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, who joke that Working with DiCaprio is hell, who must warn the world of an approaching comet that could wipe out all of humanity. They must convince Streep as US President Janie Orlean to listen to their plight. Don’t look up is currently showing in cinemas and will hit Netflix on the 24th of this month.
