This Is What Mindy Kaling Wears to Film Shower Scenes

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The filming of a shower scene for The Mindy Project is the perfect occasion for Kaling to whip out a strapless bathing suit she calls "Old Faithful." Rather than the usual "naked," Kaling wears the waterproof bodysuit, keeping set life very PG.

The actress, writer, and comedian, is no stranger to shower scenes, even speaking out about the experience with fellow actresses during a Hollywood Reporter roundtable. She admits that the experience is far from sexy, revealing, "I'd rather show my breasts on cable!" than don that nude bandeau.

As for the the slip-on sneakers and electric blue sweatpants, we're assuming those come off, but you never know.
