Mindy Kaling is famous and funny. But she’s not as famous or funny as Sandra Bullock. So, when she hangs around Sandra Bullock, like she was doing on the set of their movie Ocean’s Eight, she gets mistaken for Sandy’s assistant.
There are worse jobs in the world, I suppose?
Talking to Seth Myers:
“Like, I thought I was pretty cool. I have my own show. People think I’m Sandra Bullock’s assistant and they’re like, ‘Get out of the way! We need to bring Sandra her matcha tea.’ I’m like, ‘I’m in a scene with her. I’m not her assistant.’ Then I’m like, ‘OK! Whatever! I’ll get her her matcha tea. Might as well,’”
It’s ok, Mindy. You may not be an Oscar winner and you not have starred in the greatest movie ever, Speed, but you were part of The Office. And had you just let them know what you knew Michael Scott, they would have immediately gotten you some matcha tea.
