"I've led kind of an interesting life, and I drink and party and I am funny and have a good group of friends," says Mindy Kaling. "I wonder, why isn't that on TV or in the movies?" It will soon.
Our love for Mindy Kaling is well-documented (and the feeling is mutual!), and her new interview with New York magazine just amplifies it. She manages to be a witty observer without being mean-spirited, and self-aware without being self-indulgent. She says she doesn't really care whether people liked her Emmy dress or not: "I have a thick skin, which comes from being a not-really-skinny, dark-skinned Indian woman. I haven't fit in every place, and so I'm kind of used to resistance."
