Mindy Kaling Is Totally Okay With Her Elle Cover
The Mindy star says she loves her close up shot
Yesterday controversy erupted when Kaling's cover was released, and it showed the funny lady in a close up shot -- a much different look compared to the other stars' full body poses. Some critics also took issue with the fact that her cover was in black and white, not full color, especially because she's the only woman of color featured in the series.
Kaling released a short quip over Twitter to put the controversy to bed.
I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me.— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) January 7, 2014
Elle also stands by its cover choices. "Mindy looks sexy, beautiful and chic," said a statement from the mag. "We think it is a striking and sophisticated cover and are thrilled to celebrate her in our Women in TV Issue."
