Mindy Kaling: People Call Me 'Ugly and Fat' — as a Compliment (Video)

The "Mindy Project" star tells THR she's received this (extremely) backhanded compliment before: "We're used to skinny people, and you're so ugly and refreshing."

"You're ugly and fat!" — that's a compliment?

According to Mindy Kaling, some journalists think so, and will give her that type of feedback on her looks during interviews.

"You're ugly and fat, and that is so refreshing to us,' " says the Mindy Project star. "I'm like, 'What are you saying to me, sir?' 'Well, we're used to skinny people, and you're so ugly and refreshing.' 'That's not a question, sir.' "
