Mindy Kaling Covers 'Audrey' Magazine's Winter Issue
Here’s what the 32-year-old actress and author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) had to share with the mag:
On not sharing raunchy personal details in her book: “There are a lot of female writers coming out [where] what’s intrinsic to them is a level of raunchy details, which I’m not all that interested in reading or writing. Hopefully, this book will appeal to people who don’t need that.”
On becoming executive producer of The Office: “I used to be one of those people checking my Blackberry and now I’m one of those people annoyed at the people checking their Blackberry.”
On her confidence: “As confident as I feel, it takes an almost comically confident person to be able to say that they were destined to be in movies and television. I don’t think I was destined, but I think I am of the personality type where the rejection or odds of something doesn’t scare me. Maybe it was because my mom moved to Africa at 20 by herself, but there’s a certain fearlessness that runs in my family for things where there’s absolutely no reason to believe that it should work out. I get that from my parents.”
On not fitting into a box: “I do get criticized by women who think that because of who I am, I shouldn’t talk about shopping or be an emotional person, and I think, ‘Why?’ Now you’re just putting women in another box.”
