She said: "Jonah's character is the President's son, but also the Chief-of-Staff, which some might think is nepotism."

She added: "He is the worst. It was really, really hard filming with Jonah, and just not ruining take after take, laughing.

"We one time dedicated an entire day to him just improv-ing insults at me. It was amazing.

"He and Meryl are the only ones who really should do that kind of improv. I mean, he's just a comedic master. We all did some stuff. Just not as well as Jonah."
