Mindy Kaling Delivers Speech At Harvard Law Class Day

Mindy Kaling was invited to speak at this year's Harvard Law School Class Day and the actress-comedian delivered in spades.

Kaling, who stars in 'The Mindy Project', began her speech by joking that she was honored to give the speech and finally receive an honorary degree. Until, she was informed there was no honorary degree.

"That's cool. I'm just supposed to stand up here and give funny remarks then sit down. That's okay. That doesn't seem fair but, that's okay, I'll do it," she said.

"I know what you're probably thinking: Mindy Kaling? Why did they ask her? She's just a pretty Hollywood starlet. What does that quadruple threat know about the law?"

"Sure, she seems really down-to-earth, and pretty but in a totally accessible way, and yeah, she was on People magazine's Most Beautiful list this year and also in 2008, but what intelligent remarks could she possibly make about the law?"

"She's probably too busy doing shampoo commercials! But I'm not too busy. In fact, I would kill to do a shampoo commercial. So if anyone from L'Oreal is out there, please Snapchat me after this."

Kaling entertained the students for nearly 17 minutes before ending with a nod to two series: 'Breaking Bad' and 'Mad Men'.

"A lot of you will become the quiet heroes of our country. However, those of you who go on to work for Big Pharma or Philip Morris you will be the loud antiheroes," she said, "and someone is certain to make an AMC series glamorizing you. So congratulations. But basically, either way, you can't go wrong."
