    Mindy Kaling Loves Her Elle Cover: "If You Want to See More of My Body, Go on 13 Dates With Me!"

    The blogosphere had some issues with Mindy Kaling's not-very-revealing Elle Women in TV cover, but the actress herself loves it—and is cutely and cleverly using the controversy to her advantage!

    Unlike the covers of fellow honorees Zooey Deschanel (New Girl), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Allison Williams (Girls), The Mindy Project star's photo was in black and white and cropped to focus on her face, as opposed to her entire body. But Mindy, 34, tweeted that the shoot "made me feel glamorous & cool," adding, "I love my @ELLEmagazine cover."

    "And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me," she quipped. She also took the opportunity to plug the new Mindy Project episode airing Tuesday, Jan. 7 and 9 p.m. on Fox. "Wishing for more skin on my @ELLEmagazine cover?" she wrote teasingly,  "Chris Messina & I are naked on a brand new #themindyproject tonight, ya pervs!"

    Elle magazine is on the same page, saying in a statement the former Office star "looks sexy, beautiful and chic." The mag added that they're "thrilled to celebrate" her accomplishments as a woman in TV  with "a striking and sophisticated cover."

    Hey, as long as Mindy's cool with it!
