There's definitely an upside to having creative control over your own television show.

Ask Mindy Kaling, whose show The Mindy Project finding her locking lips with a few handsome men.

"By design I've been kissing lots of good-looking guys on my show," says the 33-year-old.

And it's not like she's just leaning in and letting her mouth go wild. She actually prepares for this stuff.

"When I kiss someone on camera, it's more than a breath mint," she said. "I do the whole teeth-brushing thing. I want to give 100 percent."

We wish everyone— not just Mindy— gave the same courtesy.
