Remember in 2015, when America's favorite 18-year-old, Malia Obama, interned on the set of HBO's Girls?

Now that Obama is no longer in the White House, Girls creator Lena Dunham and showrunner Jenni Konner are able to spill the beans — and they did just that on Monday's episode of The Howard Stern Show.


"She's an angel. Obviously, we weren’t making her go get our coffee," Dunham said. "But she wanted to do all the jobs — that was the cool thing.”

But there were certain aspects of the show Malia couldn't be a part of. “Because of her age at the time, we couldn’t do the graphic sex scenes around her if we wanted to," Konner said.

Dunham said Secret Service wouldn't let her in her bathroom while Malia was in there. "I was like, ‘I know her. It’s fine. I’m just going to go in there and pee.'” But it wasn't going to happen.

"I once asked her favorite movie, and she went, 'Well, do you want me to list it by favorite director, writer, or cinematographer?'" Dunahm said. "And I was like, ‘You’re smarter than me. Let’s just be done with this.'"
