Mindy Kaling, star of FOX’s The Mindy Project is on the cover of Elle’s February issue of Elle Magazine. Kaling is featured in one of four covers for the magazine’s “Women in TV Issue.” The others include Zooey Deschanel of “New Girl,” Amy Poehler of “Parks and Recreation” and Allison Williams of “Girls”.
The publication recently came under fire for Kaling’s cover. As the only woman of color featured, her cover features a tight shot of her face in black and white rather than the magazine’s usual three quarter shot.
Flipping the “controversy”, Kaling tweeted, “Wishing for more skin on my @ELLEmagazine cover? Chris Messina & I are naked on a brand new #themindyproject tonight, ya pervs! 930/830 FOX,” she wrote. “(It’s actually, coincidentally, true. Thank heavens my writers constantly script nudity. So: super funny, totally nude Chris/Mindy tonight!)
Issue goes on sale in February.
