AceShowbiz - Mindy Kaling attempted to ignite Chadwick Boseman romance rumours at the 2018 Met Gala.
The "A Wrinkle in Time" actress attended the exclusive fashion event held in New York earlier this month and was seated next to "Black Panther" star Chadwick at the dinner.
But as Chadwick, who is reportedly dating singer Taylor Simone Ledward, attended the Met Gala solo, Mindy decided to try and convince other attendees that they were actually a couple.
"He was sitting next to me, and I felt like I kept kind of trying to make it seem like we were together 'cause he didn't have a date," she said during an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday night (May 23).
Mindy, who welcomed her first child, dauhgter Katherine, in December, claimed that she and Chadwick got along well and had "all these private jokes". But it appeared that she was more into her flirting than he was.
"He hated it. He thought it was weird. But I was like, whatever, I'm wearing a crown. It's fine," the 38-year-old laughed, referring to the Pericles Kondylatos headpiece she sported on the night. "I felt like someone could look at us and think like 'O.K., he plays a king. She looks like a queen. They're the king and queen of some really b**ching third world country.'"
During the interview, Mindy also chatted about an actual royal wedding - the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex over the weekend. And the Ocean's 8 star was disappointed that she and late-night TV host Jimmy didn't receive an invite in the mail.
"I loved it. I truly loved it. And I felt like, maybe because I'm an actress who lives in L.A. maybe I should have been invited to it. I was mad that I wasn't invited because I looked at the guest list and I was like, Priyanka Chopra and James Corden, and I feel like we are synonyms for them. We should have been there," she pouted.
