Mindy Kaling Quotes
“I have the best deal worked out in the world. I kiss handsome actors, and then they leave so I don’t have to find out about sports and all that crap that I don’t care about.”
“There’s a whole list of things I would probably change about myself. For example, I’m always trying to lose 15 pounds. But 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.”
“I feel the same way about clothes as I do about food. I want everything.”
