Mindy Kaling
In a segment on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Kaling shared a sexist question she received from a reporter about her role on Ocean's 8.

“In the movie, [Hathaway] plays an actress, and Sarah Paulson, she’s a party promoter in it,” Kaling said. “And then with me, he was like, ‘Mindy, you play a jeweler. Now, you’re not married and have never been engaged, so how do you know about diamonds?'”

Meyers jumped in saying, “It also seems to be that he has a fundamental misunderstanding of acting,” Meyers said. “Because you could have said, ‘Oh, by the way, none of us have robbed a museum.'”
