We totally know who we want to call the next time we need an intern after hearing Halle Berry's stunning recommendation for President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama's daughter, Malia Obama — who assisted the X-Men star on the set of her TV series, Extant! The mother-of-two opened up about her experience working with her on Thursday during her appearance on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live.
“She was fantastic, she was amazing. I was such a huge fan of her. She is such a smart, beautiful, young woman. Look at who her mother and her father are, so duh!” Halle recalled. “She was down to do whatever a PA is asked to do, and I had wild respect for her for that. Everybody couldn’t really see her as a PA, although she tried and tried to be one. We just couldn’t really see her as one, but to her credit, she tried very hard to be one.”
It sounds like Malia definitely found a fan in the stunning actress, who also joked that she would ask the soon-to-be Harvard student, “Can we call your dad or your mom?" — and not going to lie, we would totally do the same thing! This is hardly the first time Halle gushed over Malia, as when they were working together back in 2014, the star spoke about the now 19-year-old's work ethic. At the time, she told Entertainment Tonight that “[Malia] is graceful, and lovely, and just charming and delightful. She's pretty remarkable. I mean, they are a remarkable family.”
According to IMDB, Extant, which aired on CBS from 2014-2015, was about "an astronaut struggles to learn how she became pregnant while on a 13-month-long solo space mission." Aside from the Die Another Day star, the sci-fi thriller boasted an impressive cast including the likes of Pierce Gagnon, Grace Gummer, and Tyler Hilton.
