Mindy Kaling dares to reveal a so-called secret of Hollywood. In her new book, “Why Not Me?” which is yet to be released in September this year, “Vera Mindy Chokalingam” aka Mindy Kaling, clears the air about the filming of sex scenes. “The Mindy Project” actress reveals that the physical intimacy scenes are actually fun to shoot rather than painful that other celebrities are downplayed.
With this, what the hunks and Damsels of Hollywood are portraying over the years is proved to be a lie.
“Obviously on screen sex is not actual penetrative sex, but, as any religious high schooler will tell you, simulating sex can be pretty damn enjoyable as well," she writes, adding that she's even fine with a gaggle of crew members around. “To that I say: the more, the merrier! Most of those people are artists whose job it is to make sure your physical imperfections are cloaked in mysterious shadows. By the end of the shooting day, you’ll wish there were more people there.”
She claims that that a fair amount of actors and actresses with significant others might want to downplay it. She even added that these artists are very arrogant about getting paid to film a pseudo-sex scene.
This fact might not echo with those outside the biz.
“People already think acting is the world’s easiest and most frivolous job,” she says. “So we all have this tacit agreement to keep our traps shut about the world’s best job perk.”
Kaling, who knows a thing or two about what it's like to film intimate moments, said it was "a joy" to shoot a sex scene with Chris Messina, who played her on-screen boyfriend on "The Mindy Project."
"Chris Messina is the most in-touch-with-his-body person of all time, and all he does is make you feel beautiful and confident," she previously told to a magazine. "I’ve known him now for quite some time and we’re so comfortable with each other that I wasn’t self-conscious at all. I wish on every actress that they get to shoot a sex scene with Chris Messina, because it’s great fun."
