Michelle and Barack Obama’s eldest daughter, Malia Obama, has an interest in the entertainment industry, and the former first daughter has reportedly secured an internship that could potentially help her to build a career in the industry.
According to multiple reports, Obama has landed an internship with famed producer Harvey Weinstein’s company, The Weinstein Company. The Hollywood Reporter states that according to a source, Obama is expected to start working in Weinstein’s New York office in February — following a vacation with her family in Palm Springs, California.
This is not the first time that Obama’s interest in the film world has been made public. Back in 2014, she worked as a production assistant on the CBS series Extant, which starred Halle Berry; and in 2015, she interned on HBO series (and Lena Dunham’s brainchild) Girls.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s unclear at this time which department Obama will work in while at The Weinstein Company, but a source says it may be in marketing or development.
However, there’s no official confirmation with regard to Obama’s internship as yet, with Page Six reporting that representatives for neither The Weinstein Company nor Obama got back to them prior to publication of their story on Thursday, Jan. 19.
