Mindy Kaling: 'It Takes A Lot of Effort to Look Like a Normal Chubby Woman'

Mindy Kaling waves at her fans as she arrives for a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday (March 31) in Los Angeles.

“I’m not skinny, but I’m an actor, which…that never happens in the world of regular-sized people and actresses,” the 34-year-old Mindy Project star said on the program. “I also am the recipient of a lot of backhanded compliments about it, where people are like, ‘It’s so nice that Mindy Kaling doesn’t feel she needs to subscribe to the ideals of beauty that other people do.’ And I’m like, ‘I do subscribe!’ They’re like, ‘It’s so refreshing that Mindy feels comfortable to let herself go and be a fat sea monster.’”

“By the way, I like run and work out. It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal chubby woman. The way they talk about it, [it's] like, ‘She’s a pioneer because she’s glued to her sofa.’”

Watch her interview below – and check out The Mindy Project on Fox tonight.
