The actress was on hand to discuss the second season of her Netflix comedia “Never Have I Ever.” sin embargo, it was a moment that happened before she took the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater that had the host blushing.
“I’d also like to apologize for earlier,” Colbert said, jokingly noting that he thought Kaling would bring up the moment herself because it would make him feel bad.
Kaling explained that she was backstage getting changed for the show and was only in a pair of pants and a bra when Colbert decided to pop into her dressing room to say hello and wish her luck.
“I don’t usually do this. I usually wait until the guests are in the wings,” Colbert said. “But I thought I would just go, ‘hey have a great show.’ So I popped the door open. I knocked, but I did that knock and pop.”
Despite the somewhat impolite incident, Kaling clearly has no hard feelings as she joked about wishing she had looked a little better if she was going to give the host an eye-full.
“I just thought the whole time like, ‘I wish I had worn a sexier bra.’ Because it was like, sabes, he works hard,” Kaling said of the host, prompting a big laugh from him and the audience.
“That’s very thoughtful. So few guests take my feelings into account when I walk into them undressed,” Colbert joked.
The host went on to apologize and say that the moment was “entirely” his fault and encouraged people to always knock and wait for a response before entering a room. sin embargo, he commended the star’s entourage for instinctively protecting her from an unwanted guest.
“They hurled themselves in front of you like I was an assassin,” bromeó.
“me siento como Meghan Markle,” she joked of the Duchess of Sussex. “They were like ‘you shall not pass!’ Like you had bad intentions. You’re still Stephen Colbert!”
