Mindy Kaling phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about her spread in Vogue and the return of The Mindy Project.

“I think that’s the only photo in existence where I’m not smiling tooth-fully,” Mindy says of her photo in the April issue of Vogue, which she jokes in one of the most controversial covers for the fashion magazine. 

“It worked out well for me because Kim [Kardashian] and Kanye [West] were on the cover, so the cover kept getting tweeted out … and I think people bought a lot of it, but it’s so great my little name is in the corner …. so I felt like I was photobombing this pop culture moment,” the comedian adds.

When it comes to the return of her hit FOX show The Mindy Project, she couldn’t be more excited for fans to tune in.

“We’ve been off the air for two months, making our fans sort of wait, but luckily we have two back-to-back episodes and we start right off with the kiss and honestly these last eight episodes of the season are so full of secrets, sex, and lies … I’ve been dying for the show to return.”

Catch the one-hour premiere of The Mindy Project tonight on FOX at 9/8c.
