Interning while being the president's daughter has its challenges, but Malia Obama managed to crush it anyway!

"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."

"Obviously, we weren't making her go get our coffee," Dunham joked. "But she wanted to do all the jobs, that was the cool thing. She was totally enthusiastic."

Dunham even confessed that at some point during the process, she became amazed by Malia's attention to the craft.

"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,'" the 30-year-old writer and actress shared. "I was like, 'You're smarter than me, let's just be done with this topic.'"

"She's done such a good job, and clearly her parents have done such a good job," Dunham added. "When you see that family together, they're not performative."

Sounds like she did great! Listen to Dunham's interview with Stern below.

Malia didn't stop interning after Girls either. It was recently revealed that the budding filmmaker will intern for Harvey Weinstein before heading to Harvard University in the fall.
