Mindy Kaling And The Stupidest Red Carpet Questions, Ever


Mindy Kaling Kevin Spacey Woody Allen

“Who are you wearing?”, “Are you excited to be here?”, “Do you want to win?” are just a few of the inane questions that get yelled at the stars as they walk down the red carpet. But every now and then a question gets asked that is so mind-blowingly idiotic, or eyebrow-raisingly nonsensical that you just have to ask, how are these people allowed within 100 feet of celebrities? And more to the point, who thought it was a good idea to give them a microphone and put them on the television? Usually the answer is E! news.

mindy kaling red carpet Mindy was asked to specify what race she found attractive

For instance, E! news correspondent Alicia Quarles recently asked The Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling what race of guys she likes. Yes, you read that right. “Who’s your type?” she asked Kaling, who seemed confused by the question. “Good looking?”, Kaling responded with the quizzical intonation of someone who is confounded. This wasn’t enough for Quarles though, who continued “So, any colour?”. It’s more than a little intrusive to begin with to ask the star what kind of men she likes, but to demand a race be included in her bizarre interrogation is just too much.

Champion Of Positive Body Image Lena Dunham Responds To Vogue Cover Controversy


Lena Dunham Melissa McCarthy Gabourey Sidibe Mindy Kaling Jennifer Lawrence

More and more attention has been brought to magazines’ rampant retouching of stars on their covers – Melissa McCarthy, Gabourey Sidibe, Mindy Kaling and even Jennifer Lawrence have been retouched beyond recognition in recent months. The most recent victim of this trend is Lena Dunham, who graces the cover of this month’s Vogue.

The creator of Girls was confused by the backlash against her Vogue shots.

The situation is made even more complicated by the fact that Dunham advocates and writes about body positivity and self acceptance. It’s no surprise then, that her edited cover made a big splash online.

Mindy Kaling

Comedian Mindy Kaling appeared on the front of fashion magazine Elle for its 'Women in Television' February issue.

But what was supposed to be a career high for the 34 year-old has been turned into a controversial debacle after her close-up face shot caused a stir on the internet.

Bloggers Defend Mindy Kaling, While Kaling Defends Elle Cover


Mindy Kaling Amy Poehler Zooey Deschanel Allison Williams

Bloggers and online commenters are in a bit of a twist over Mindy Kaling’s newly released Elle cover, but the star of The Mindy Project herself is staying classy about it. After the four covers of this month’s issue (featuring Kaling and fellow honorees Zooey Deschanel (New Girl), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Allison Williams (Girls)), people were quick to point out that Kaling seemed to have drawn the short end of the stick. While the other women were pictured in color, full-body portraits, while Kaling received the black and white treatment. Her photo is also the only one cropped to focus just on her face.

Mindy Kaling, Fox Fall Party
Did Kaling's body type prevent her from getting the same treatment as her fellow actresses?

Because Kaling is the only one who counts as “curvier” by Hollywood standards (although a size 8 could hardly be called “curvy” in Regular People Land), the conclusion that Elle had cropped her due to restrictive beauty standards was obvious. The same sort of controversy happened back in 2013, when Melissa McCarthy posed for the cover, draped in a baggy coat. Back then, however, McCarthy insisted that the look had been her own choice and that was that.
