Imagine having the president’s daughter as your personal assistant; this is what Halle Berry experienced when Malia Obama worked as her P.A. in 2014. Sounds like an incredibly thin tightrope to tread! On the one hand, you need your assistant to work for you, on the other hand, that means you will be bossing the president’s daughter around.
The “Monster’s Ball” actress said it was definitely weird to have one of Obama’s daughters working for her, finding it hard to ask her to do things. However, Berry said she had a lot of respect for Malia because she was a hard worker and up to doing the tasks that any regular assistant would do.
Irving Milgrom – Hugh Jackman
Ever since his epic role as the Wolverine in the “X-Men” film series, Hugh Jackman has been landing big blockbuster roles. His assistant of the better part of two decades, Irving Milgrom, has made sure he keeps to his schedule and does his day-to-day errands.
Milgrom has been Jackman’s right-hand man on every movie set since 2009, and the two have naturally become close friends. It was bound to happen after so many years of working so closely with each other. In fact, Hugh affectionately calls him “Irv,” which we personally find quite endearing. We always love a good bromance.
Melinda Relyea – Sarah Jessica Parker
Melinda Relyea started working for “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker in 1998, when the show was being filmed. On top of being her P.A. for several years, Melinda and Sarah became very close friends, with Sarah even being the bridesmaid for Melinda’s wedding. How sweet!
After her years as an assistant, Melinda moved on to production, becoming the producer for the two “Sex and the City” films that were made after the show’s finale. As if that was not enough to keep her busy, Melinda is also the VP of Sarah Jessica Parker’s production company, Pretty Matches.
Kevin Keating – Gwyneth Paltrow
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was all over the silver screen back in the late 90s and early 2000s, but most recently, she has been known for her beauty and lifestyle empire, Goop. Needless to say, Paltrow keeps extremely busy with her business endeavors, acting career, podcast, and family, but thankfully, she has personal assistant Kevin Keating there to help her with it all.
Keating has been with the blonde beauty since 2010 and has become one of the Goop queen’s closes friends. In fact, you might have caught a little glimpse of Keating in Netflix’s “The Goop Lab with Gwyneth Paltrow.”
Alexa Okyle – Khloe Kardashian
Anyone who works for the Kardashians can definitely function under pressure, and handle a million things at once. These girls are some of the busiest bees in the entertainment industry. One of the superhumans who can handle them is Alexa Okyle, Khloe Kardashian’s personal assistant, who’s been with her for quite some time.
Not only has Okyle become one of Khloe’s closest friends, but she was also the first to know when the reality star got pregnant with True Thompson. Okyle has also worked for other Kardashian sisters and is currently the Director of Operations of Kardashian Jenner Communications. Well done!
