Mindy Kaling visited The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to promote her new film Late Night. But while Mindy was discussing her adoration for co-star Emma Thompson, Stephen accidentally received a phone call on his iWatch.
For Mindy, working with Emma was a dream come true. As a child, Mindy fell in love with Emma after seeing her performance in the 1993 film Much Ado About Nothing.
While sharing a story about working with Emma, Stephen’s watch engaged in a phone call with Marriott Hotels. The host quickly ended the call, but Mindy immediately seized the moment to give his a little good humored grief.
Feigning frustration, Mindy said, “Your rewards program from Marriott interrupted my touching story about Emma Thompson!”
Stephen profusely apologized but it didn’t keep Mindy from giving him a hard time. The former The Office star said, “I have so many more questions about your financial situation.” Mindy went on to say she didn’t understand why a person as successful and wealthy as Stephen would use a hotel rewards program.
While the moment was embarrassing for Stephen, Mindy was able to milk all the comedy out of the accidental call.
