They may share a first name, but Mindy Kaling and her onscreen counterpart, Mindy Lahiri, are not one and the same.
"I am dating," Kaling, 35, revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show. "But one of the challenges I have noticed is that I'm not very much like my character, who is very wild, and I think that when I go on dates there's this expectation that I'm going to have, like, 11 martinis and pass out and spend the night really soon."

Creator/leading lady Mindy Kaling shared a clip from the show on Instagram, explaining it ended up on the cutting room floor "because we never got through it."
