Malia Obama is headed for Hollywood!

As former President Obama steps down from the top job, it has been announced that his daughter, Malia Obama, has accepted a prestigious Hollywood internship.

According to E! News, Barack Obama and Michelle Obama's eldest daughter has landed an internship with famed Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein.
Representatives for the Weinstein Co. and for the Obama family are yet to formally comment on the exciting news.
However, it is believed that the 18-year-old will begin the internship in early February after the former First Family return from their no doubt much-needed vacation in Palm Springs.
The news will come as no surprise to those who avidly follow the Obama family.
Speaking with People magazine in 2012, Michelle said, "Malia has expressed some interest in film-making.”
She wasn't kidding! Malia has already begun to build up quite the impressive resumé in the industry.
In 2014, Malia helped out on the L.A. set of Halle Berry's CBS series Extant, which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg.
And in 2015, Malia interned on the New York set of Lena Dunham's wildly popular HBO series Girls, where she was seen fetching coffee for the series’ cast and crew in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
“She’s one of my best friends!" the proud papa revealed while appearing on Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In May of last year, Obama and Michelle announced that Malia will commence her studies at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2017.
“The President and Mrs. Obama announced today that their daughter Malia will attend Harvard University in the fall of 2017 as a member of the Class of 2021. Malia will take a gap year before beginning school,” the White House said in a statement.
Harvard accepted only 5.2 percent of applicants this year, making the admissions cycle the most selective year yet in its almost four-century history.
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.
Here proud parents Michelle and Barack can be seen at the beginning of their journey in the public eye with their tiny daughters, Sasha and Malia.
The Obama girls sure have grown up!
While her parents are obviously thrilled that their daughter has chosen to attend the elite school, President Obama admitted to Ellen DeGeneres in a recent interview that he declined an invitation to speak at her graduation ceremony, as he will probably be spending the formality in tears.
“I’m going to be wearing dark glasses, sobbing,” he told the talk show host earlier this year. “I’m going to cry.”
“I’m not ready for her to leave,” he added. “She’s one of my best friends. It’s going to be hard for me not to have her around all the time, but she’s ready to go. She’s just a really smart, capable person and she’s ready to make her own way.”
Malia, we can’t wait to see where this latest gig takes you!
