Former first daughter Malia Obama apparently would much rather be behind the camera than in front of it. According to a report by Naughty Gossip, Malia, who is currently interning for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in New York City, has turned down several offers to model professionally.
After eight years of being under the intense microscope of the world, the 18-year-old has plans to lay low and live a more subtle life. She would much rather focus on the film industry as she has dreams of going into production full time after college. She is currently taking a gap year before she heads to Harvard University this fall.
It is no secret that both Malia, Sasha and former first lady, Michelle Obama have a passion for fashion. Malia is reportedly obsessed with shows America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway. Despite of her height (6’1) and strong fashion sense, Malia has no interest in making modeling a career.

Paris Jackson may not be interested in pursuing a high-profile music career but, when it comes to modeling, she’s singing a different tune.
The daughter of Michael Jackson has just inked a deal with IMG Models, the renowned firm which reps veterans like Gisele Bündchen and Karlie Kloss, the newest “It girls” Ashley Graham, Hailey Baldwin and Gigi and Bella Hadid and rising stars like Victoria’s Secret 2016 Fantasy Bra model Jasmine Tookes, fellow Angels Candice Swanepoel and Joan Smalls and model/actress Hari Nef.
IMG Models announced the news on Instagram Thursday, sharing a breathtaking shot of the P.Y.T. from her cover story for CR Fashion Book’s March issue alongside the caption: “NOW REPRESENTING: #ParisJackson.”
Jackson acknowledged the agency in a separate post, writing, “Thank you @imgmodels I feel very lucky and blessed.”
As Jackson looks to book her first official modeling gig, the heir of the King of Pop is also set to make her acting debut. She will appear on an upcoming episode of Lee Daniels’ Star, a Fox drama following a girl group.
