Mindy Kaling, actress and a mother of two - Katgerine and Spencer - in a recent interview praised her close friend and actress Reese Witherspoon for giving her both parental and professional advice to her as a fellow working mom. Talking to PEOPLE magazine, the 42-year-old star shared, "Reese Witherspoon is always such a great source of parenting advice because she is so playful and fun and incredibly busy.”
She added, "She has three kids, but also this really full-time career. She acts, she runs this company, she's a producer and everything too."
Praising her friend, colleague and fellow mother Mindy revealed that Reese also taught her the importance of "making time" for herself so she can be a better parent to her kids. "She's a person who always gives me great advice, and I think she's the one that has taught me the importance of making time for myself so that I could be a good parent for my kids," Mindy shared.
Kaling and Witherspoon have been friends, and collaborators, for many years. Witherspoon was also seen making a cameo in Kaling's The Mindy Project, before the duo appeared onscreen together in A Wrinkle in Time a year later. Showering praises on her friend, Mindy added: "The other thing about Reese is that she's just incredibly smart about investing, that's something that people might not know, but she loves to invest. And she's really smart about it. That's not strictly parenting advice, but I think she's doing it because she wants to provide for her children and make sure their futures are secure... She's just so good at that kind of thing."
She also heaped praise on Witherspoon for her "incredibly smart" investment choices, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Kaling recently had a recurring guest role on Witherspoon's Apple TV+ series, The Morning Show - which premieres its second season Friday. She is currently working as a screenwriter on the forthcoming Legally Blonde 3. Kaling recently said she loved being pregnant with her son during the Covid-19 pandemic last year, because it meant she was able to hide from the public.
