Looks like we don't have Mindy Kaling salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Counts Fawlty Towers (1975) among some of her earliest comedic writing influences.
2 Is of Indian-American descent.
3 Mindy Kaling's mother was an ob-gyn doctor, inspiring many of the story lines in The Mindy Project (2012).
4 One of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World (2013).
5 Her mother Swati, an ob/gyn physician, once worked in the same Boston hospital with Ronald Krasinski, the internist father of her The Office (2005) (TV) co-star, John Krasinski.
6 Is close friends with Web analyst and actor David Harris, who briefly appears in her new comic memoir "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)'.
7 Was the first female member of The Office (2005) (TV) writing staff when she began there at age 24.
8 Co-wrote the acclaimed play "Matt and Ben", a comedy about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. She played the role of Ben.
9 Graduated from Buckingham, Browne & Nichols, a private school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1997 along with Alison Folland.
10 Graduated from Dartmouth College, where she was a member of The Dog Day Players improv troupe, and where she also wrote a comic strip for the campus newspaper called 'Badly Drawn Girl'.
11 Her middle name, Mindy, was taken from the TV show, Mork & Mindy (1978) (TV). Her mother was pregnant with her in Nigeria and that was the only American show they got there. When she met Robin Williams and told him the story, he didn't believe her.

#Quote
1 Most people want to ask about my size and how brave I am. I'm like, 'I'm not brave, I'm just not really skinny.'"
2 I do not think stress is a legitimate topic of conversation, in public anyway. No one ever wants to hear how stressed out anyone else, because most of the time everyone is stressed out.
3 As a kid it's adorable to have a gap in your teeth. But then, because of the shifting in my mouth, I started whistling through it, and as a 32-year-old woman, whistling while you speak in sort of annoying.
4 [from Twitter] My heart wants white jeans but my head says no. Kidney says go for it, spleen is ambivalent. Ovaries say no comment, rather rudely actually.
5 I want it both ways. David Brent wants to run with the foxes and hunt with the hounds. And I definitely feel that way, too.
6 Well, all the guys want to have sex with me all the time. Every day I come to work it's nonstop sexual harassment. They had to have some people from General Electric come down and talk to us about it. There's a lawsuit that's about to happen. But other than that, it's been great. - on being one of only 2 female writers on a staff of 14 for The Office (2005)
