Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling visited Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night and before her interview with Kimmel could ensue, an awkward and competitive moment of ex-bragging took place.
Mindy spotted one of her ex-boyfriends “Darren” in the audience, and shortly after — a post-breakup sin that many of us commit proceeded. He bragged about being a lawyer, and going to Ghana for charity work; and she pointedly emphasized her onscreen accomplishments, including being creator, writer and star of the Mindy Project.
The two continued to hash it out (with Kaling at one point “hinting” a relationship with Kimmel) until a frustrated Mindy ended the one-upmanship with her being the cover star of Southwest Airlines magazine.
Though obviously scripted, the scene does bring to mind one of those painfully uncomfortable ex run-ins where outdoing each other becomes an illogical top priority.
During her appearance on the late-night talk show, Mindy also talked about her love for Rihanna, and being mistaken for teenage Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
