Lena Dunham Says Malia Obama Is 'So Smart'

Before Malia Obama had an internship with Harvey Weinstein, she had an internship with HBO and worked on Girls with Lena Dunham!

Lena was on the radio earlier today and gushed about the 18-year-old former First Daughter!

“She was interested, and she was interning at HBO, and they thought, ‘What if she comes a couple days a week to the set of Girls,” Lena said. “Obviously, we weren’t making her go get our coffee. But she wanted to do all the jobs, that was the cool thing. She was totally enthusiastic.”

“She is so smart, I once asked her, ‘What’s your favorite movie?’ She was like, ‘Do you want me to list it by favorite, director, writer, or cinematographer. I was like, ‘You’re smarter than me, let’s just be done with this topic,’” Lena said.

“She’s done such a good job, and clearly her parents have done such a good job,” Lena continued. “When you see that family together, they’re not performative.”
