Malia Obama Declines Modeling Offers, Prefers to Stay Out of Public Eye

Former U.S. President Barack Obama's eldest daughter, Malia, has reportedly turned down several modeling offers. A recent report suggests that the former first daughter has been approached multiple times to model on the catwalk but has declined.

A source told Naughty Gossip that Malia has turned down offers to become a professional model as she prefers staying away from the spotlight.

"Malia has a model body that would be great for runways. She has been offered several opportunities to model but turned them all down. She wants to be behind the camera, not in front of it," said the source.

According to the source, Malia loves the film and television industry and loves reading scripts, and unlike her dad, she has no interest in being famous. Malia is currently having her internship at The Weinstein Company in New York City, where she works for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

For her internship, Malia reads scripts and pitches them to the company executives. While she enjoys working in the film industry and has a body that is great for runways, Malia does not love the idea of modeling professionally and being in the public eye.

The 6-foot-1-inch former first daughter dreams of pursuing a career in the film industry but only in a production role. Like her mom, she also loves dressing up and is much of a style icon; however, she has no plans whatsoever of accepting modeling contracts.

When she was still the first daughter, she was often seen wearing printed dresses in public. She also loved donning coats and cute overalls, which always sold out shortly after she was spotted wearing them. Because of this, many believe that she will make the grade as a professional model. In the recent past, however, Malia has been offered a good number of modeling contracts but she has consistently declined.

Malia is expected to attend Harvard University in the coming fall.
