Comedic actress Melissa McCarthy has named Lena Dunham as her girl crush.

McCarthy, who is best known for playing Molly Flynn-Biggs on the CBS sitcom Mike & Molly, told gay glossy The Advocate that all her friends growing up in Illinois were gay.

“All of my friends were gay,” McCarthy said. “In high school we started going to downtown Chicago clubs like Berlin, one of the best gay bars ever. I remember being undressed and then redressed by two drag queens up on a pillar, and at the end I looked like Bea Arthur. At 43, it’s still one of the greatest nights of my life.”

“I was a little odd, and I found them to be the most accepting group. … They accepted me as a woman trying to be a man who's trying to be a woman. I wanted to be a drag queen so badly. I'll bet I still own more wigs than any drag queen – I love me a wig.”

When the interviewer asked, “To paraphrase one of your best lines from Bridesmaids, which woman steam-heats your undercarriage?” McCarthy, who is raising 2 children with her husband actor-director Ben Falcone, answered Lena Dunham, the star of HBO's Girls.

“She's my girl crush. She's smart, funny, confident, and she isn't afraid to look awkward,” McCarthy said. “She's exactly who she is, take it or leave it. Nothing's more charming than someone who doesn't take herself too seriously.”
