I only know Malia Obama to be a lovely, well mannered, quiet young lady. I mean sure, I’ve seen pictures of her dancing at Coachella or partying at a Penn frat. Who hasn’t. But the few times I’ve heard her speak she’d just a lovely qui… well you know.
So I was surprised to hear her interests lie within the entertainment industry. 18 year old Miss O just started a highly coveted internship with Harvey Weinstein. And that means instead of hitting concerts, Malia is working… at Sundance.
She was spotted at a Tuesday screening of “Empire” co-creator Danny Strong’s hot festival film “Rebel in the Rye,” about reclusive “Catcher in the Rye” author J.D. Salinger.
Meeting Malia, Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen told her, “I am friendly with your mother,” a spy said, and she replied, “I know who you are!”
Cohen previously appeared at the White House with Harvey Weinstein and Whoopi Goldberg at a workshop hosted by Michelle Obama for high-school students who want to work in film.
