Malia Obama's Summer Internship: Prez's Daughter Working on HBO's 'Girls'

By    |   Tuesday, 07 Jul 2015 01:12 PM

Malia Obama has reportedly clinched a summer internship with Lena Dunham on the set of the controversial HBO show “Girls” in what marks just the latest entertainment industry experience for the president's oldest daughter.

President Barack Obama’s daughter previously worked for a brief period of time last year on the set of Halle Berry’s CBS sci-fi series “Extant,” in which the 17-year-old performed a variety of tasks ranging from computer shop alignments to picking up coffee for the cast and crew, according to MTV News.

In a 2012 interview with People magazine, first lady Michelle Obama revealed that Malia has had her eye on Hollywood for some time.

“Malia has expressed some interest in filmmaking. Just like her father, she is an avid reader, and she enjoys movies. But she's a freshman, so she also knows she has years in college to explore her interest," Obama said.

Although no official confirmation has been given regarding the rumored "Girls" summer internship from either HBO or the White House, an anonymous source close to the production reportedly told Us Weekly, “[Malia’s] a fan, and she mentioned that to Lena [Dunham] when she came to the White House. I’m not sure how long she’ll be interning for. It’s a bit of a trial thing for her. They’ve known each other and discussed for a while. Lena and her get along great.”

Malia Obama, who is set to graduate from the private Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., next year, has been spotted on the “Girls” set in Brooklyn with Dunham this summer, and reports have been circulating about what her actual status and work with the production will be, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

“Girls,” a highly controversial show ever since it aired in 2012, is known for its rough humor and explicit depiction of the main characters’ sexual escapades, the newspaper noted.
