Malia Obama Has Landed Yet Another Hollywood Internship

Miranda GreerJan 21, 2017

President Barack Obama isn't the only person in the family moving on to a new role, his eldest daughter, Malia, has secured an internship with Hollywood super-producer Harvey Weinstein. The missing family member?

Obama will reportedly join Harvey Weinstein's NY office, though her exact role is not yet known.

Starting next month, the 18-year-old daughter of President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama who graduated from Sidwell Friends School in May but won't attend Harvard University until the fall of 2018, will intern for Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein in the super-producer's NY office. In 2015, Malia worked as an intern in NY on Lena Dunham's HBO series Girls.

The Weinstein Co. did not respond to a request for comment.

In an interview with People in 2012, Michelle said of her daughter: "Malia has expressed some interest in filmmaking". She has also spent time on the Los Angeles set of Halle Berry's CBS drama series Extant.

Malia visited at least a dozen colleges before she finally settled on Harvard, including the Ivy-league Princeton and Columbia, where both of her parents earned undergraduate degrees. She previously interned on the HBO show "Girls".

Is Malia heading for a career in Hollywood? The amount of time that I'll be investing in issues is going to be high. "She's just a really smart, capable person and she's ready to make her own way".
