Friendly Ex. When he presented at the 2022 Emmys, Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak weren’t afraid to take inspiration from their dating history.
“We want to say to all the nominees, congratulations, you lazy sons of bitches. How do you get away with this? We have 22 [episodes] a year. It would take your whole life. [There] no time for other projects and no time for a social life. You had no choice but to develop complicated relationships with your co-stars,” joked Kaling, 43, while speaking on Monday, Sunday, March 12.
For his part, Novak, 43, added: “Now you can just write a self-contained masterpiece, cast movie stars in it, shoot it for a couple of weeks and go back to your fancy luxury compound. Maybe, in all honesty, you shot the whole thing at your fancy luxury compound.
The former co-stars, who dated from 2004 to 2007, worked on The officeThey have openly addressed their close friendship over the years.
That Revenge For his part, the director spoke about the challenges of trying to move on after collaborating on nine seasons of the hit NBC sitcom. “I think whenever we date someone else, there’s a time when that person is very skeptical about our friendship,” he said Weekly entertainment 2013 about his connection to Kaling. “‘Everyone seems to think that you two could be a couple, and I don’t want to get in your way. Are you sure you’re not on a date? Are you sure you won’t end up going out?’ It’s so common to have that platonic best friend that gets a little weird when you start dating someone.”
Kaling also opened up about her “strange” connection to Novak and recounted InStyle 2015: “He’s not my friend, but he’s not my best friend. I guess you could describe our relationship as ‘romantic camaraderie with rowdy arguments,’ but I don’t think Facebook would accept that as a new status.”
The Mindy Project star, who is the mother of daughter Katherine, 5, and son Spencer, 2, recently opened up about her reaction to fans who think Novak is the father of her children. “It doesn’t bother me,” she said Marie Claire in August. “He is godfather to both of my children – and they have such a great relationship.”
The Massachusetts native added, “So [the speculation hasn’t] has affected my happiness at all, it has not affected my kids or BJ. If that makes people happy, I’ll take it.”
