The writer-actress recently told Vogue that while she tries to lose weight, she doesn’t want to be skinny — a comment that Kaling thinks probably reflects the attitude of many women she knows, but which led to a flurry of questionable reactions.
“People are like, ‘It’s so nice that Mindy Kaling doesn’t feel she needs to subscribe to the ideals of beauty,'” said the star, before telling Kimmel, “I do subscribe!”
She continued, “They’re like, ‘It’s so refreshing that Mindy feels comfortable to let herself go and be a fat sea monster.'”
Kaling declared, “I, by the way, run and work out. It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal/chubby woman!”
She had much more to say on the issue, and it’s definitely worth watching.
