Halle Berry Says Malia Obama Was “Fantastic” Working As Her Production Assistant

It’s not often an Oscar-winning actress winds up with a production assistant who may in fact have a higher profile than she does.

But when Halle Berry, 50, was starring on the CBS sci-fi TV show Extant, one of the production assistants was then the First Daughter of the United States.

‘She was fantastic,’ Halle said of Malia Obama this week on Watch What Happens Live. ‘She was amazing. She is such a smart, beautiful young woman.’

Halle told host Andy Cohen to ‘look who her mother and her father are, so, duh,’ meaning then-President Barack Obama and then-First Lady Michelle Obama.

Andy asked: ‘Was that kinda wild?’ to which Halle said: ‘It was kinda wild,’ and Andy prodded: ‘Were you like: ‘”Will you get me a coffee?”‘, putting on a timid voice.

Halle got in on the joke as well, saying in a similar sheepish voice: ‘”Could we call your dad or your mom?”‘ before, now in regular voice, adding: ‘Yeah, I was such a huge fan of hers. She was amazing,’ said Halle of the now 19-year-old Malia.
