“My career has only become what it has out of sheer need, not because I wanted it that way. I knew if I wanted to perform I was going to have to write it myself,” she tells EW’s Jessica Shaw, who spent the day with Kaling, hanging out, observing her in the writers’ room, and going to out dinner with her and several of her best friends. “The dream is what I imagine Amy Adams’ life is. Someone calls and says, ‘Hi. David O. Russell wants you to do this part.’ Ultimately I’m very happy with the way it worked out, but I don’t think it’s my first choice for every role do to have to write it. I guess I could play the lame, nagging friend of the beautiful white protagonist, but I’m neither going to have as much fun nor make as much money doing that.”
