Malia Obama Takes to Lena Dunham's 'Girls'

By    |   Friday, 03 July 2015 11:09 AM

First daughter Malia Obama was one of the "Girls" this week.

Paparazzi spotted Malia hanging out on the set of Lena Dunham’s HBO series "Girls," where celebrity website TMZ reports that the soon-to-be 17-year-old is an intern.

Former NBC News anchor Brian Williams daughter, Allison Williams, is a co-star.

Malia, according to the New York Post's Page Six, spent about three hours on location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, during filming at the Aurora Ristorante, "a hipster haven on Grand Street."

It’s not the teen’s first foray in Hollywood.

Last summer, she spent a week on the set of Halle Berry’s TV show "Extant" where the first daughter interned as a production assistant. TMZ reported she was a gopher for the cast — bringing them coffee and drinks —and assisted the crew in keeping the public from walking through the set during filming.

Dunham, the 29-year-old creator and star of the HBO series that follows a group of twenty-something hipsters living in Brooklyn, is reportedly an admirer of Malia and sent her a happy birthday message via Twitter for her Sweet 16th birthday.

Dunham is a controversial figure, even by Hollywood standards.

In addition to the television show, on which she is often naked and, along with the rest of the cast, shown in graphic sexual scenes,  Dunham is the author of "Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's 'Learned'," a collection of personal essays that created a media firestorm.

She publicly apologized for a section in the book, published last year, in which she recounted how when she was seven, she offered her toddler sister "three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds ... basically anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl," and how she would "carefully spread open" her sister's legs "out of curiosity,” ABC News reported.

And after the threat of litigation by the lawyer for a man described in the book as a Republican named Barry, who Dunham contends raped her while the two were students at Oberlin College, the publisher agreed to change future printing with a disclaimer that Barry is not the man’s real name, according to a December story in the Hollywood Reporter.

"Dunham describes Barry in her book as the 'campus's resident conservative' who wore cowboy boots, a mustache, hosted a radio show, worked at one of the campus libraries and graduated in December 2005," the Reporter reported. "The description was detailed enough to cast a pall over a former student who has had to defend himself against Dunham's accusation that he raped her, according to (lawyer Aaron) Minc.

"His client not only fits Dunham's description, but his first name is also Barry."
