Mindy Kaling Reveals the Hardships of Dating & Being Famous

Mindy Kaling steps out for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Wednesday (March 11).

The 35-year-old actress talked about the hardships of dating while being famous – everyone expects her to be like her The Mindy Project character!

“I am dating but one of the challenges I have noticed is that I’m not very much like my character, who is very wild,” Mindy said. “And I think that when I got on dates there’s this expectation that I’m going to have like 11 martinis and like pass out and spend the night really soon.”

“And I think people get a little disappointed because my true self I could never do that like have a one-night stand,” Mindy added. “Because I have my medications that I have to take at night I have to be at my house and like do my flossing. I have all that stuff. And you didn’t want to know that, but.”

Empire's Jussie Smollett Comes Out as Gay: 'There Is No Closet'

Jussie Smollett has publicly come out as a gay man in a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

The 31-year-old Empire actor decided not to discuss the topic while filming his interview for the talk show, but then asked Ellen if they could film another segment backstage afterward to open up about his personal life.

“It was really important to me to make sure that it got across that there is no closet,” Jussie said. “There’s never been a closet. That I’ve been in. I don’t own a closet, I got a dresser, but I don’t have a closet, but I have a home and that is my responsibility to protect that home.”

“So that’s why I choose not to talk bout my personal life. But there is without a doubt, no closet that I’ve ever been in, and I just wanted to make that clear, but it was most important for me to make that clear to you on your show at this time in the world. And that’s where I’m at,” he added. “So let’s not read into it the wrong when I say that I don’t talk about my personal life, I’m saying that. But it is in no way to hide or deny who god made me. Ya know?”

“My mama knows. My Mama likes me a lot,” Jussie continued. “And yes I take her to the Sound of Music sing-along every, single year. So, any questions? But you know honestly, we’re humans and we love and we do all that good stuff. So I’m honored for this opportunity and I’m honored to be here with you.”

Lena Dunham Won't Get Married Until It's Legal for Everyone

Lena Dunham steps out for an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (March 9).

The 28-year-old Girls actress said that she and her boyfriend Jack Antonoff will not get married until it’s legal for same-sex couples to do so in all 50 states.

“Well it’s something that the idea of having a celebration that can’t be fully shared among all the people in my life and all the people that we love just doesn’t really feel like a celebration at all,” Lena said. “So until that’s something that everyone can join into with no sense of being left out on any level, politically, emotionally, it’s just not something that we’re gonna do.”

The dress has been causing controversy from the start! “Yeah, so she sent me three photos of three different dresses. So I said which one is it. Which one do you like the best? And she said the third one. And I said, oh, the white and gold one? And she said no the blue and black one. And I said no, mom that’s white and gold and if you think it’s blue and black you need to go to the doctors,” Grace said. “Yeah, so we were like we were losing our minds over this and we were having a weeklong wedding celebration, that’s what we do in Scotland. So we were going to the pub at night and we were like guys what is this to strangers and people were just absolutely freaking out. And then I posted it on Tumblr I had like a couple thousand followers and I thought maybe I’ll get some answers. Sometimes Tumblr is good for that kind of sciencey stuff. ”
