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.
