Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina with an adorable cub on the set of The Mindy Project, August 24th
Mindy Kaling as Liz Lemon (also known as the best picture ever)
The main reason I’m reluctant to get married to Mindy is that every single person in our lives and Twitter feeds would say, ‘I knew it.’ I just couldn’t fucking deal with that. But we know. We know what’s there.
“B.J. is one of my oldest LA friends and just an all-around dashing guy. He spends money in a cool way: he doesn’t fritter it away on trendy junk (like I do, hello Forever 21), but then, like, buys a Jil Sander jacket or takes out 20 people to dinner at a fancy restaurant on a whim.
Also, he’s always quoting books he’s reading in interesting ways that connect organically with what’s being talked about. I have never been able to do this seamlessly; when I read something interesting I go into work the next day and just upload it to everyone no matter if it’s relevant or not.” — Mindy Kaling
“She’s the most fiery person I’ve ever met. Sometimes in a moment of frustration with a movie studio or network executive, she’ll throw up her hands and say, `That’s it! I’m out. I’m going to get married and have five kids and never write again.’ She always means it 100 percent, but it never lasts more than 10 minutes.” — Bj Novak

2013 Time Magazine’s 100 Influential People: Mindy Kaling, comedian and creator, age 33
Mindy Kaling embodies the trifecta of being brilliant, wonderful and hilarious. Because that is statistically impossible, it can mean only one thing: she was created by an evil scientist to lull us into a giddy stupor in order to control our minds. How else can you explain someone who simultaneously commands respect and affection? Someone so acutely adept at creating her own opportunities? Moreover, Mindy has a bright and generous laugh that’s good for the soul, and yet she doesn’t suffer fools. No matter the issue, she can be relied on to weigh in with conviction and good humor. To be made fun of by Mindy is to feel special. I’ve learned so much from working alongside her, and I’m proud to call her a friend. I just wish she hadn’t been created by an evil scientist. - Ed Helms (x)
