Malia Obama Spends Time with Lena Dunham on ‘Girls’ Set


The teenage daughter of a sitting U.S. President is hanging out with Lena Dunham.

President Obama’s eldest daughter Malia, 16, was spotted in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday spending time on the set of Dunham’s HBO comedy series Girls.

Page Six reports Malia, who turns 17 on Saturday, spent about three hours on location in Williamsburg as the show filmed at the Aurora Ristorante on Grand Street, and the teen spent time with Dunham.

While it hasn’t been divulged if Malia will appear in an episode of the raunchy feminist-themed show, TMZ reports she is working for Dunham as a summer intern.

Girls went into a ratings free fall during Season Four, and has been criticized for its lack of racial diversity, emotionally detached characters, and overt, aggressive, and degrading sex scenes.

Dunham, who created, directs, writes, and stars in the show also wrote in her 2014 memoir Not That Kind of Girl she was raped when she was 19-years-old by a man she repeatedly insisted was a “resident conservative” named Barry while attending Oberlin College in Ohio.

After a month-long investigation into the claim by Breitbart’s John Nolte, Dunham’s allegation was debunked, and the book’s publisher, Random House, exonerated Barry and issued a correction stating Dunham had used a pseudonym when describing her alleged attacker.

Also in the book, Dunham described sexual experiments with her much younger sister Grace, and trying to kiss her doing “anything a sexual predator might do.”

Dunham wrote that she once curiously touched Grace’s vagina:

One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn’t resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.

My mother came running. “Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!”

My mother didn’t bother asking why I had opened Grace’s vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just got on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success.

Dunham, who is currently filming Season Five of Girls, also recounted casually masturbating in bed with the sleeping toddler.

She took to Twitter in July 2013 to wish a 15-year-old Malia Obama a happy birthday:
