Mindy Kaling, the brilliant talent behind “The Mindy Project” and “The Office,” is pretty much like us in more ways than we realize. Not only is she a talented comedian, writer, and actress, but she’s also a self-professed fast-food junkie who isn’t afraid to indulge in some McDonald’s treats. During “The Mindy Project” season 3 wrap party, Kaling surprised her crew and cast with a McDonald’s feast that included Happy Meals, Shamrock Shakes, and of course, Big Macs. The “Junk Food Queen” has also shared her fondness for the chain on social media, and she’s not afraid to show it off! But, it’s not just about indulging in the fast-food giant’s delicacies; Kaling’s generosity knows no bounds, as evident in her propitious treat to her team.
In an exclusive interview with Mashed, Kaling dished all the secrets of her love for McDonald’s. While she loves everything on the menu, she hilariously quipped, “I like McDonald’s because they’ve done a lot to make healthy options for people if they want, like salads and whatever, but I don’t eat those.” While she’s probably the most outspoken fan on our list, she stays humble. In 2017, Kaling teamed up with McDonald’s in an ad where she never said their name. At the time, she tweeted, “I partnered with a brand w/o being able to say the name of the brand. Is that normal? If so, can I be paid in fries?” If only.
