Funny-lady Mindy Kaling and Rihanna both are staring in the upcoming film "Ocean's 8."

Poor Mindy Kaling, she just wants Rihanna to know that she exists. 

 

The hilarious actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and talked all things Ocean's 8 including her "frienship" with the famous Barbadian singer. 

 

"She was amazing, and Im so intimidated of her," Kaling told DeGeneres of working with the Riri. "'Cause I feel like movie stars are here and pop stars are here."

But she remembers my name, I think, so. I think were good friends.

"'Cause they can do whatever they want and no one thinks its crazy or weird," she continued while gesturing with her hands. "And so when I met Rihanna, I was like, 'Hi Rihanna. It's great to meet you.' "

 

"And like, on the third day, I'd go up to Rihanna and be like, 'Hey Rihanna. It's Mindy Kaling, and she's like, 'I know, we're in a movie together,' " Kaling continued. "And I was like, 'I know! But I just, like why would you remember me? You hang out with so much cooler people.' But she remembers my name, I think, so. I think were good friends."

 

Ocean's 8 lands in theaters Friday.
