"Look who her mother and her father are," Berry told the show host, who wondered aloud how it felt to have a president's daughter as an assistant on the set. "Were you like: '"Will you get me a coffee?"' an intrigued Cohen asked the 50-year-old Academy Award winning actress.

'"Could we call your dad or your mom?"' Barry said sheepishly and added that the 19-year-old was extremely professional on the sets. "She was down to do whatever a PA is asked to do, and I had wild respect for her for that," the actress praised Malia.

The Extant actress shared the image on Instagram and captioned it: "In honor of the strongest, most fierce woman there ever was... Repping @MichelleObama to the NY premiere of #KidnapMovie tonight."

I was on the red carpet, doing my thing, like boom, boom, boom, right?...
