The Mindy Project star, Mindy Kaling, responds to her Elle magazine cover controversy, saying she loves it! Check out Mindy's classy and hilarious tweet about the cover issue.
Four funny women are featured on the new cover of Elle magazine--but Mindy Kaling's cover stirred up a bit of controversy.
Now, both Mindy and Elle are clearing things up.
The mag's "Women in TV Issue" has four different covers, featuring Mindy, Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel and Allison Williams.
Three of the covers are in full color and feature almost full body shots of each woman--the fourth cover, which Mindy graces, is the only one in black and white, and shows the star close-up.
What gives? Why not give the ladies similar cover photos?
Mindy is the only woman of color for the special issue's covers-–and a star who has always celebrated her curves--so why does the magazine seem to be hiding her figure?
Why she's pictured in black and white, while the other covers are in color, we can't quite figure out either.
Elle released a statement about Mindy's cover, saying, "Mindy looks sexy, beautiful and chic. We think it is a striking and sophisticated cover and are thrilled to celebrate her in our Women in TV Issue."
Mindy took to Twitter to lighten the mood (and plug her show too--why not?), tweeting: "Wishing for more skin on my @ELLEmagazine cover? [Costar] Chris Messina & I are naked on a brand new #themindyproject tonight, ya pervs! 930/830 FOX."
She added: "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."
Keeping it real, Mindy!
