Mindy Kaling on why being a bridesmaid isn't always fun

The actress thinks it's far easier to be an usher...

Mindy Kaling has spoken about being a bridesmaid, describing it as being like 'an unpaid slave'.

The comedian and actress made the comments during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this week.

Speaking to Seth, Mindy said: "When you're a bridesmaid at a wedding, although it sounds kind of glamorous when you're younger, you're essentially a maid. You're like a slave - an unpaid slave to the wedding."


She continued: "You're a maid, and you know it because you're wearing a dress that's the same colour as the other maids - like, your uniform! And your job is to just, like, guide, like, grandparents, and, like, talk to foreigners and seat people who look confused, and find the rings and stuff".

In contrast, Mindy thinks the ushers have a far easier task, noting: "I feel like I need to give an incredibly touching speech that's funny in parts. And, like, all you have to do is say the place you guys went to college, and then every girl wants to sleep with you".

Do you agree with Mindy's comments?
