That awkward moment when Girls star Andrew Rannells realises Obama saw him naked

Andrew Rannells, star of hit television series Girls, has opened up about meeting the President and realising he has seen his bare behind.

Appealing in an interview with Seth Myers on Late Night, Rannells, who plays Elijah Krantz in Lena Dunham’s hit show, opened up about the realisation.

He has gotten naked various times on the show, including with new love interest Dill Harcourt played by Corey Stoll, best known for playing Peter Russo on House of Cards.

Then later when Rannells met Obama as he filled in for Jonathan Groff in Hamilton!, he realised the president’s daughter Malia had been an intern on the show, and put two and two together.

He says: “I just had a full meltdown. ‘He watched the show, he knows who I am. So he’s seen me naked. That’s weird.’ I was just thinking all these things. And then I looked at the cast, and the whole rest of the cast was looking at me like, ‘Why does the temp get more time to talk to the president than, like, the rest of us? He did nine minutes of work.’”

Girls star Lena Dunham recently joked that she doesn’t want to get married yet – because gay people are “winning at weddings right now” and she can’t compete.

Dunham was one America’s most vocal activists in support of legalising same-sex marriage in the States, promising to boycott marriage until every human was given the right.
