Mindy Kaling: Marge Simpson for 'Glamour' Magazine!

Mindy Kaling channels Marge Simpson in a feature for Glamour magazine’s October 2012 issue, on newsstands now!

Here is what the 33-year-old Mindy Project actress had to share with the mag:

On The Simpsons: “Growing up, I remember my parents feeling a little wary of The Simpsons. This was the late eighties, and there was a wave of articles about TV shows that were bad for America. Then we all started watching it and loved it. Marge Simpson is the one who’s really funny. Her character looks so crazy, but then she’s supposed to be totally demure. I think [Simpsons creator] Matt Groening is a genius for giving her that hair.”

On her Mindy Project character: “My character is a really busy doctor who is kind of in a state of arrested development because she never had a chance to date. It used to be that you had to make female TV characters perfect so no one would be offended by your ‘portrayal’ of women. Even when I started out on The Office eight years ago, we could write our male characters funny and flawed, but not the women. And now, thankfully, it’s completely different.”

Also pictured inside: Mindy making an appearance on The Today Show on Tuesday (September 18) in New York City. She wore a Tory Burch dress, Valentino shoes, Dannijo jewelry, and Lookmatic glasses.

    India is the skin whitening capital of the world they are full of self hate and only promote actresses who look Persian and Afghani as possible.

  • Joe

    I re-watched the Mindy Project last night, and thought it was great. I liked the use of M.I.A. “Bad Girls” song in the pilot, and have high hopes for the rest of the season.

    Also, what relevance does India’s “self-hate” over skin color have to do with Mindy?

    I scrolled down the main page really fast, saw the blue hair and thought it was Nicki Minaj :-/

  • NE1

    For a second I thought it was Nicki Minaj trying to look heinious again, but it’s not, it’s Mindy Kaling and at least she has a reason to wear an ugly wig. Much better.

  • SHARE BEAR

    WOW she got super dupa FAT

  • Rebecca

    She no more channeled Marge than I do. She looks nothing like Marge Simpson. Marge is thinner and is not dark skinned.
