Mindy Kaling Talks About Backhanded Body Compliments After She Bares Her Midriff On The Red Carpet

Leave it to these two to make a touchy subject HIGHlarious!

Mindy Kaling wore a midriff-bearing Topshop ensem at Paleyfest a week ago, and it was met with mixed reviews and what she calls ‘backhanded compliments.’

The 34-year-old actress talked about how people praised her for saying that she doesn’t want to be skinny, while on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which wasn’t exactly what she was implying.

Then she turns the tables on Jimmy, and asks him if he’s dealt with any comments about his own weight loss!

It’s a great take on a really sensitive issue, and when it comes down to it, as long as people are happy and healthy, who cares?!

Mindy is certainly both of those things!

P.S. For what it's worth, our Perezcious readers voted that Mindy wore the ensem better than Vanessa Hudgens! CLICK HERE to weigh in!
