London: Actress Mindy Kaling 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 star has revealed that she has never felt "so unfamous" in her life because 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.
"With that group of women, I've never felt so unfamous in my life. Like, 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.'
"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 said.
She went on to recall a hilarious interaction with Hathaway, saying, "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.
