Mindy Kaling
may not be the same size as your typical actress, but she's cool with it! 

"The Mindy Project" star opens up about her weight and her sense of style in the April issue of Vogue -- and says she doesn't even want to be skinny!  

"There’s a whole list of things I would probably change about myself," she says. "For example, I’m always trying to lose fifteen pounds. But I never need to be skinny. I don’t want to be skinny. I’m constantly in a state of self-improvement."

Props to the actress -- that's the best mentality you can really have in life! "The Office" star also says it's important to go shopping with friends to find things that look just right on you. 

"When you’re dealing with volume, you really need to go shopping with friends," she explains. 

Mindy's also very comfortable with her curves, and she likes to show them off!

"When I’m at my thinnest, I tend to wear things that don’t show off my body," she confesses.

"But when I’m bigger, I’ll go body-con, which comes from a place of ‘This is my perimeter, in case you were wondering if I was actually much bigger.'" 

The 34-year-old also likes her outfits that show off her quirky personality, saying "love when your clothes can help you project that you’re witty—you know, when your outfit does some of the work for you."

And she also loves a good fashion risk.  

"It’s really tempting not to take chances. But I don’t want to be fearful. I don’t want my tombstone to say, she hid her imperfections well on the red carpet," she reveals.
