The 18-year-old daughter of former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama kept things casual while making her way inside movie producer Harvey Weinstein‘s offices on Wednesday (February 8) in New York City.
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.”

It was an emotional moment for Malia Obama when her dad, President Barack Obama, praised her and 15-year-old sister Sasha during his Farewell Address.
This is the final week of Obama‘s presidency and the 18-year-old First Daughter was in the front row with mom Michelle Obama to watch the address on Tuesday night (January 10) in Chicago, Ill.
“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad,” he said about his daughters.
