Mindy Kaling - Mindy Kaling is trying to lose 15 pounds
Mindy Kaling admits she is ''always'' trying to lose 15 pounds but has no desire to be ''skinny.''
Mindy Kaling admits she is ''always'' trying to lose weight.
The 'Mindy Project' star says there are several things she would like to change about herself, but insists she has no desire to be ''skinny.''
The 34-year-old actress, who describes herself as a ''fluctuating size 10 (UK size 14),'' told the April issue of US Vogue magazine: ''There's a whole list of things I would probably change about myself. For example, I'm always trying to lose 15 pounds.''
But she added: ''I never need to be skinny. I don't want to be skinny. I'm constantly in a state of self-improvement, but I don't beat myself up over it.''
Despite not being entirely happy with her figure, Mindy believes she takes more fashion risks as a result of her curves.
The Screen Actor's Guild Award-winner explained: ''When I'm at my thinnest, I tend to wear things that don't show off my body. But when I'm bigger, I'll go body-con, which comes from a place of 'This is my perimeter, in case you were wondering if I was actually much bigger.' ''
The former 'The Office' USA actress added: ''It's really tempting not to take chances. But I don't want to be fearful. I don't want my tombstone to say, she hid her imperfections well on the red carpet.''
