The Obamas’ daughters may have stayed scandal-free and out of the spotlight during their time living in the White House, but there’s one thing we definitely know about them: They’re being brought up as normally as possible, considering the circumstances.
We already know about Sasha’s summer job rolling silverware at a Martha’s Vineyard seafood restaurant. We also know that Malia scored an internship on Halle Berry’s show Extant — but what we didn’t know is that Malia’s experience wasn’t nearly as glamorous as it sounds.
On Watch What Happens Live, Berry revealed that Malia was down to do all the dirty work that a production assistant does, despite being one of the First Daughters.
“She was down to do whatever a PA is asked to do, and I had wild respect for her for that,” Berry admitted. “Everybody couldn’t really see her as a PA, although she tried and tried to be one. We just couldn’t really see her as one, but to her credit, she tried very hard to be one.”
Berry continued, “She was fantastic, she was amazing. I was such a huge fan of her. She was amazing. She is such a smart, beautiful, young woman. Look at who her mother and her father are, so duh! It was amazing.”
Berry also admitted that there was a fair amount of fangirling going on — and it wasn’t Malia who was gushing over the celebs on set.
“[I would ask], ‘Can we call your dad or your mom?'” Berry said, laughing.
Even though it’s clear that everyone else had problems treating Malia like a production assistant, she was clearly down for it herself, showing what a gracious, motivated woman she is. Can she be any more #goals?
