We recently learned that Mindy Kaling is pregnant. The circumstances of said pregnancy were vague; all we knew was that it was an “unexpected surprise.” And now, in a move that would no doubt make Kelly Kapoor wish she’d thought of it first, we’re learning that nobody is going to know whose sperm helped make that baby happen.
When I think of an actress who wants to keep the identity of their baby a secret, I think of January Jones. But then I also picture January Jones as being the type who might get a little wine-drunk by the pool, lean in close to a friend and go “Okay, you wanna know a secret?” while offering a curved pinky finger to swear on. But apparently Mindy won’t be that type of friend. A source tells People that Mindy just started sharing the news that she’s pregnant, but that’s all she’s sharing.
“She is not telling anyone, not even close friends, who the father is.”
I hope Mindy takes this secret one step farther and writes “Yeah, nice try” for the father’s name on the birth certificate.
Mindy’s friends might not ever learn who the father is, but I can see some people trying. Like Mindy’s A Wrinkle in Time co-star Oprah would totally take this on as a challenge. Everyone talks to Oprah, right? She’ll invite Mindy over for lunch, where she’ll be greeted at the door by Stedman, who will clip a mic to her shirt collar and give her a quick spritz of hairspray. Then she’ll be led to a softly-lit living room and seated in a comfortable chair across from Oprah in her best “Let’s be honest” cardigan. Don’t do it Mindy, it’s a trap!

Westworld robutt, Evan Rachel Wood, had some unkind words for Ben Affleck on Twitter yesterday. Paper Magazine tweeted a story in which Kevin Smith, at a recent Q&A for an Outfest screening of 1997’s Chasing Amy (via Gay Star News), recounted the time, 20 years ago, when Ben said of his onscreen kiss with co-star Jason Lee “a man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face.” Paper magazine said that Kevin said that Ben also said “now, I’m a serious actor.”

No, not that way, you sicko. All those minutes spent sipping maple lattes, concocting fights in her head to use in a song at a later date, and – most importantly – being a Grade-A student at the Olivia Munn School of Bearding (Japanese Potato Master’s Program Sold Separately!) must have left Taylor Swift wondering what doing time in a closet was like. SPIN reported this morning that two burly men were spotted carrying a heavy trunk from her Tribeca apartment, and, no, it wasn’t packed with Karlie Kloss’s Kookie Krap.
