Mindy Kaling, star of the upcoming much-anticipated reboot ‘Ocean’s 8’, gave a beautiful commencement address to the students of the Class of 2018 at Dartmouth yesterday.
The actress channelled Elle Woods (her co-star, coincidentally, on the recent Disney movie ‘A Wrinkle in Time’) from ‘Legally Blonde’ as she told the graduates: “Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, but especially not yourself. Go conquer the world. Just remember this: Why not you? You made it this far.”
Even with the film having been released seventeen years ago, the speech has still proven iconic with the likes of Donald Trump ‘borrowing’ from it last year.
