Matt Damon & Mindy Kaling Keep Close While Filming Funny Super Bowl Commercial

Mindy Kaling goes in for an awkward hug with Matt Damon while on set of their upcoming 2015 Super Bowl commercial on Saturday afternoon (October 18) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old actress and 44-year-old actor were also spotted hailing a cab and walking around the streets. We can’t wait to see the finished product!

In case you didn’t know, Mindy played Matt‘s BFF Ben Affleck in her 2002 award-winning play Matt & Ben, while her pal Brenda Withers played Matt.

Matt & Ben was a satire on the pre-paparazzi, pre-fame friendship between Oscar-winning screenwriters and best friends, as the screenplay for Good Will Hunting drops mysteriously from the heavens.

Mindy Kaling Assures Fans Her Character Didn't Feel Violated During Latest 'Mindy Project' Episode

Mindy Kaling looks amazing as she participates in a conversation for the New Yorker Festival on Saturday (October 11) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actress and writer opened up about her show The Mindy Project and the reaction from fans after the last episode dealt with anal sex.

“I think that Danny is a wonderful character, a wish fulfillment character, and he loves Mindy and they have a relationship that is very understanding with each other, and he tried something because he was trying to see what he could get away with,” Mindy said (via Vulture). “But I don’t think that in that relationship that Mindy’s reaction to it was ‘I feel violated’ it was ‘Hey man, run that by me!’ I think that, we have to, in knowing what their relationship is, and knowing that the way it was portrayed it wasn’t something that made her feel unsafe or degraded…you can love someone and be in a relationship with them when you’re both consenting adults and people can try things and you can be like…’I busted you on that.’

Mindy Kaling Says She 'Misspoke' Regarding Abortion Storylines on a Sitcom - Watch Here!

“When I made the comment, I think that I misspoke… I said that I thought it would demean the issue of abortion to talk about it on sitcom,” Mindy told HuffPost Live.

She continued to say: “What I should’ve said was my sitcom… Many incredible shows have dealt with it in a way that I really admire. Roseanne is one of them… I should’ve said for now… [Abortion] doesn’t strike me, and I don’t think this is controversial, as the funniest of areas and I run a comedy show. And also, my show… is about a workplace. Our show from the get-go hasn’t made its centerpiece to focus on political issues.”

Mindy Kaling Says Joan Rivers Taught People To Not Take Things Personally

Mindy Kaling is all smiles while onstage as the featured guest at AOL’s Build Speaker Series at AOL Studios on Friday afternoon (September 12) in New York City.

Joan was so incredible for so many reasons,” Mindy said, as reported by The Huffington Post. “She was completely fearless and totally fine with taking an insult.”

She continued to say: “We can’t be offended when people call girls ugly. We can’t be offended when boys say that they think we’re fat. Those are things that should not be important to us. She was both someone who dished a lot, but also taught, ‘Hey, don’t take it personally.’ So that was very inspiring.”

Earlier that day, Mindy showed off her colorful side on her way to Today.

FYI: Mindy is wearing an Opening Ceremony dress to AOL and a MiuMiu dress to Today.

Mindy Kaling to 'Flare': If I Want 3 Kids, I Need to Get Going (Exclusive Pic!)

Mindy Kaling steps out from behind the curtains in this exclusive new pic from Flare magazine’s October 2014 issue, provided exclusively to JustJared.com!

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On wanting kids: “This has been the first year I realized that if I want to have three kids, I need to get going.”

On the benefits of being single: “In my 20s, I was not only boy crazy, but marriage and relationship crazy. Now it’s almost the opposite. My work is so rewarding and I’m so self-centred about it that I’m kind of excited about not having to go home and ask someone about their day.”

On refusing to cover abortion on The Mindy Project: “It would be demeaning to the topic to talk about it in a half-hour sitcom.”

On sexism in the television industry: “Of course I’m riddled with doubts like every other creative, neurotic person, but if you don’t display them all the time, you’re seen as overconfident. I’ve worked in television for 10 years straight. If I were a man, it wouldn’t be considered strange [to have confidence] at all.”
