The 'Mindy Project' star appeared alongside her then-boyfriend B. J. Novak in 'The Office' but admits their scenes were a little trickier when they decided to go their separate ways in their personal life.

Speaking on Watch What Happens Live, she said: "I knew you were gonna bring up B.J.!

"I can't speak [for] him, [but] I think for me it was challenging to be in your mid-twenties - I'm such a sentimental person and I take things very hard - but that's the nice thing about being in long friendships. That was, like, 12 years ago when that happened, so you get over things like that, but it totally was very challenging."

And if there's one type of scene Mindy loves filming, it is sex scenes as she finds it "pretty damn enjoyable".

She added: "I love sex scenes! Obviously onscreen sex is not actual penetrative sex, but, as any religious high schooler will tell you, simulating sex can be pretty damn enjoyable as well.

"To that I say, the more, the merrier! Most of those people are artists whose job it is to make sure your physical imperfections are cloaked in mysterious shadows. By the end of the shooting day, you'll wish there were more people there.

"People already think acting is the world's easiest and most frivolous job. So we all have this tacit agreement to keep our traps shut about the world's best job perk."
