DailyCandy Interviews Mindy Kaling

The Actress and Writer Talks About Her New Book

It’s a simple truth: If you were always the cool, popular kid (especially in middle school), you’re probably a boring adult.

So though we’re not exactly glad Mindy Kaling, a.k.a. The Office’s Kelly Kapoor, was chubby, deathly afraid of bicycles, and preferred her parents to children her own age for most of her youth, for the sake of her LOL-inducing new book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (out Tuesday), we wouldn’t have it any other way.

In today’s video, editor Lauren Lumsden sat down with Kaling at her L.A. home to talk about the book, from why she wrote it to who would play her in the movie version. While there, we also got a tour of her awe-inspiring closet (Cinderella Miu Mius, anyone?).

All the cool kids will be jealous.

 Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is available for preorder online at amazon.com, $16.
