I’m mis­taken for San­dra Bul­lock’s as­sis­tant: Mindy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Mindy Kal­ing (right) said peo­ple thought she was her Ocean's Eight co-star San­dra Bul­lock's as­sis­tant, while they were shoot­ing to­gether for the film.

The 37-year-old ac­tor re­vealed that she has never felt ‘so un­fa­mous’ in her life as she got much less pa­parazzi at­ten­tion than her co-stars, in­clud­ing Anne Hath­away, Ri­hanna, Cate Blanchett, He­lena Bon­ham Carter, Sarah Paulson and co­me­dian Awk­wa­fina, re­ported Fe­male­first.

“I thought I was pretty cool. I have my own show. Peo­ple think I'm San­dra Bul­lock's as­sis­tant and they're like, Get out of the way! We need to bring San­dra her matcha tea,” she said.

“I'm like, ‘I'm in a scene with her. I'm not her as­sis­tant.’ Then I'm like, ‘OK! What­ever. I'll give her her matcha tea. Might as well," Kal­ing added.

She went on to re­call an in­ter­ac­tion with Hath­away. “There's movie/TV fa­mous, and then there's in­ter­na­tional pop star fa­mous, which is at a whole other level. We shot a scene, all eight of us to­gether re­cently, and when we walked out­side, there was this huge pa­parazzi (swarm).”

“I was talk­ing to Anne Hath­away and Ri­hanna was kind of be­hind us. And there was a sea of pa­parazzi tak­ing pho­tos and all that. I was feel­ing kind of cool and fa­mous. Then Ri­hanna took a left to her trailer, which was not in the same direc­tion that me and Anne were go­ing, and the pa­parazzi left so quickly,” she said.

Mindy Kal­ing is well­known for her pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion show, the Mindy Show.
