The “Mindy Project” star wore a green and blue checked coat over her short dress while carefully stepping back outside in her heels.

Though she’s regularly seen on the small screen with her hit Fox series (and in reruns of “The Office), the 34-year-old actress’s voice will soon be heard on the big screen.

In the upcoming animated flick, “Inside Out,” Mindy portrays Disgust, just one of the many emotions inside the mind of a little girl.
