Mindy Kaling called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Tuesday to talk about her new show “The Mindy Project” that she is not only starring in, but she is also writing and producing as well. On the show Mindy plays a young OB/GYN doctor trying to balance her personal and professional life.
How Did Mindy Come Up With Her Character?
“My mom was an OB/GYN. I thought the world of being a doctor in New York City was kind of fun and glamorous. A little bit more glamorous than being on ‘The Office.’ I love the movie ‘Bridget Jones‘ and I like that world a lot. I wanted to cast lots of cute guys in the show and go on fake dates and stuff. I thought that would be fun,” she tells us.
On Facebook Stalking Her Ex In The Halloween Episode:
“I think in the episode more even than feeling single, you don’t want your ex to move on before you do. You might have been fine with it until they’re going to have a kid and everything. Then you start feeling really competitive. I just think that’s what that episode was kind of about was my character used to date Bill Hader’s character for awhile and was kind of fine with the break-up until he was moving on and then she got really mad,” Mindy says.
“The Mindy Project” is on Tuesday nights at 9:30/8:30c on FOX.
Mindy Kaling’s Hilarious Reason Why She Loves Jessica Alba
“I’m presenting an award to Jessica Alba tonight, and I’m extremely nervous about it,”Mindy Kaling confided to InStyle.com at the Baby2Baby gala, which celebrated the non-profit’s mission providing essential baby gear to children in the L.A. area. After a little liquid courage, the Max Mara-dressed star of FOX’s The Mindy Project went behind the microphone and delivered a humorous speech of why she really loves the actress and activist before honoring her with the Giving Tree award. We’ve pasted the highlights below:
“If I looked like Jessica Alba, I would not give a crap about clean living. Like, I would not recycle. I would just drop trash on the street and just be like ‘Deal with it.’ I would let other people pick it up. Her husband is so handsome that his name is Cash Warren. They don’t give out names like that unless you are a Nascar driver or the star of CW show, or really handsome. What ethnicity are you even? I don’t know, don’t even tell me because I don’t want to know, I just want to spend time thinking about it.”
