John McEnroe Dishes On His Role In ‘Never Have I Ever’
Kaling isn’t the only celeb who is game to celebrate “Never Have I Ever”s success!
Shortly after the third season’s premiere, The Blast covered the legendary John McEnroe’s recent chat with Entertainment Tonight wherein the tennis legend discussed “Never Have I Ever” and working with Kaling behind the scenes.
McEnroe serves as the narrator for the series.
“Who would’ve thought that [I] would be the sort of psychologist or uncle or advisor to an 18 or 17-year-old Indian American girl going through high school,” McEnroe said in his interview, “So I go to credit Mindy Kaling.”
It turns out the steps for a connection between McEnroe and Kaling may have been surreptitiously set years before, during Kaling’s childhood!
“It turned out her father was a big tennis fan and must have talked about me a lot when she was growing up,” McEnroe continued. “He was in India and it’s sort of her story.”
There had been talk of Kaling in McEnroe’s household in the past, as well!
The 63-year-old went on to reveal the story of how the duo met for the first time.
“I met her at this Vanity Fair Oscar party and we were just crossing paths, and [my wife] Patty [Smyth, of 1980’s band Scandal] goes, ‘Oh, that’s Mindy Kaling!”

Kaling’s birthday message for Spencer, whose father’s identity has been kept private, reads, “Happy 2nd birthday to my son Spencer, who is the human personification of a hug. I can’t describe the intense joy it is to be your mom. You remind this old, cynical lady that the world is full of wonder, and fun can be found in the most mundane places…”
