Let’s just go ahead and add this to the reasons we love Mindy Kaling.
After attending the Met Gala (where she looked phenomenal, by the way), she appeared on Conan where she discussed the photo of her and musician Common that circulated afterwards.
She said that although the pic was completely the doing of a photographer on the red carpet, she hoped it would start a rumor that the two were dating!
“We took the photo and I was like, ‘Oh, this is going to be great. Like, the rumor mill is starting: Are Common and Mindy together? Look at the sparks, the natural camaraderie they have.'”
We love it! Unfortunately the plan didn’t go exactly as planned however…
“Everyone was like, ‘Ugh, Mindy’s so lucky that Common took a photo with her.’ It was so much closer to ‘Sick Woman Allowed to Take Photo With Celebrity.'”
What a bummer that her plan failed! Oh well. Hopefully she can start a rumor with Drake instead.
