Playing Malia Obama Reportedly Interning for Lena Dunham on 'Girls'

Well this is a pretty sweet gig for a 17-year-old girl!

Malia Obama is currently interning for Lena Dunham on the set of Girls, Us Weekly reports. Meanwhile, Page Six got a shot of President Barack Obama's eldest daughter on the New York City set of the HBO hit last Thursday, where she went casual in jean shorts, a sleeveless collared shirt, and white sneakers.

Malia is reportedly a big fan of Girls, and the summer internship came about when she mentioned it to Lena during her visit to the White House. “I’m not sure how long she’ll be interning for," a source tells Us. "It’s a bit of a trial thing for her. They’ve known each other and discussed for a while. Lena and her get along great."

Lena has also been obviously fond of Malia for a while now. The 29-year-old actress/writer took to Twitter back in 2013 to wish the then 15-year-old a happy birthday.

"Happy Birthday Malia Obama! Let's all hope we're as elegant as you when we grow up," she tweeted.

Malia's Girls internship isn't actually her first experience on a TV set -- last summer, she worked as a production assistant for Halle Berry's CBS show Extant.

ET caught up with Malia's mom, First Lady Michelle Obama, in May, when she dished on her daughters growing up.

"We're the last people our kids want to be with," Obama joked. "I think they're conditioning us for that empty nest syndrome, but we're not relishing that at all. We don't know what we're going to do. I got to get him some more hobbies."
