Malia Obama didn’t let being a former First Daughter get in the way of kicking ass at her internship with the Weinstein Company, where she served as a production assistant—and an Oscar winner even vouched for her work ethic.

Halle Berry gushed on Watch What Happens Live, “She was fantastic, she was amazing. I was such a huge fan of her. She was amazing. She is such a smart, beautiful, young woman. Look at who her mother and her father are, so duh! It was amazing.”
