Mindy Kaling On Love: BJ Novak Was The One ‘That Got Away’
Mindy told Howard, 60, that BJ, 35, was her one “love that got away.” Aww!
“He’s a good friend of mine, yeah. He’s my best friend. He broke up with me,” the actress said. “It was years and years ago that that breakup happened. I was so sad, not angry, sad. That was the hottest I ever looked cause I stopped eating. When I get depressed, I stop eating. I was so miserable and so beautiful.”
Howard continued to dig for more info, asking Mindy if she would have married BJ. “At the time? Yeah. I was 24,” she replied. “For the record, if anyone asked me to marry them, I would have said yes.”
While they still hang out regularly to this day, Mindy has relinquished any romantic feelings for BJ. “I love him and I think he’s a great person,” she said, “but I’m not holding a candle for BJ.”
