girl crush: mindy kaling

Mindy Kaling is the type of girl we’ve been longing to see on the silver screen for ages. She’s so refreshingly real and representative of young women in a way that other young starlets aren’t. With her razor-sharp sense of humor, her sheer guts, and, yes, even her insecurities, she is the hilarious and admirable friend we wish we had. We’ve loved her since we found out she was more than just a ditz on The Office – oh yeah, she was a writer and  co-executive producer for the show, too. Her charming memoir, Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), endeared her even more to our hearts. And, now, her new sitcom, The Mindy Project, has the potential to be a funnier, more light-hearted, primetime derivative of Girls.

We’ll definitely be watching – will you?

 

our favorite vegetarian characters

To eat meat or not to eat meat, it’s a much-debated issue, even around our office. As a vegan myself, I often sing the praises of a plant-based diet – as do a slew of celebrities, many of whom I look up to as cruelty-free activists. But instead of listing them here – how many times do we have to tell you that Natalie Portman is veg, or that Alicia Silverstone lives a completely cruelty-free life? – I decided to compile my favorite fictional veggie munchers.

Here, the most entertaining vegetarians the big and little screens have to offer:

 Of course gemini vegetarian Elle Woods (played by Reese Witherspoon), from the hit movie Legally Blonde, tops our list.
