Mindy Kaling: I love sex scenes!

Mindy Kaling thinks most actors are lying when they say they don’t like doing sex scenes.

(Cover) - EN Showbiz - Mindy Kaling finds simulating sex on screen “pretty damn enjoyable”.

The 36-year-old has had the opportunity to get up close and personal with some hunky actors who have guest starred on her hit comedy The Mindy Project. While many actors describe sex scenes as clinical, Mindy totally disagrees.

“There must be lots of other actors who love doing sex scenes too, right?" she writes in her new book Why Not Me? "Wrong. If you interview any actor about having to do sex scenes, you always get the same answer: they 'hate' doing them. I am here to tell you they are all lying. Every last one of ‘em. Obviously on-screen sex is not actual penetrative sex, but as any religious high-schooler will tell you, simulating sex can be pretty damn enjoyable as well."

Mindy’s on-screen dates have included James Franco, Bill Hader and Tim Daly. Despite the show being cancelled by Fox earlier this year, it was soon picked up by Hulu and the channel has just debuted the programme’s fourth season.

“The day we were cancelled, I received hundreds of texts and emails and The Mindy Project trended on Twitter," she revealed. "I have never been prouder of the show. We also received calls from other outlets that were interested in buying it. One was from the streaming platform Hulu… Hulu was attracting better talent than the networks were, and when I met the president, Craig Erwich, he loved the show and wanted it to help establish their brand."

A week later the deal was done and Mindy was faced with the prospect of creating a 26-episode season.

"I'd gone from barely having time to transition from my panic of not having a job to the panic of more work than I'd ever had," she said.
