It sounds like Mindy Kaling was pretty head over heels for ex-boyfriend B.J. Novak when they dated years ago.

In a new radio interview with Howard Stern, the 35-year-old actress admits her Office co-star and former flame is her greatest love to date.

"He broke up with me," Kaling dished to Stern. "It was years ago that that breakup happened."

The Mindy Project star says she was "so sad" when they split. "Not angry, sad," she said. "That was the hottest I've ever looked because I stopped eating. When I get depressed I stop eating. So I was so miserable and so beautiful. I remember waking up, barely getting out of bed and we worked together but I didn't care. I had no makeup on...I was real miserable."

Stern asked if Novak was the best sex she's ever had. "It was pretty damn good," Kaling admitted. "Real good. He's a smart and funny guy."

When asked if she would have married Novak if he proposed when they were together, she said, "At the time? Oh yeah. I was 24. For the record if anyone asked me to marry me I would have said yes."

But there's no bad blood between Kaling and Novak. They are still "best friends" and work together. "I love him, I think he's a great person but I'm not holding a candle for B.J." she dished.
