Actress Lisa Kudrow believes gay men are biologically “superhuman.”

The 51-year-old Kudrow, who is best known for playing Phoebe Buffay on the NBC sitcom Friends, reprises her role as a D-lister next month in the second season of HBO's The Comeback.

In The Comeback, which was canceled in 2005, Kudrow plays sitcom actress Valerie Cherish, the star of a fictional reality show also called The Comeback.

In an interview for Michigan gay weekly Pride Source, Kudrow was asked: “Are you as immersed in the gay community as your career would lead us to believe?”

“Yes and no,” she answered. “The people I work with are gay. I don't know who I'm going to offend by leaving them out, but I need to say that I think gay men are superior beings in my mind. I do believe that.”

When asked to explain, she said: “It's all so tricky. I studied biology and the brains are anatomically different. They just are. There's a stronger connection with the corpus callosum [in gay men]. The two sides of the brain communicate better than a straight man's, and I think that has to be really important. They're not women – they're still men – and women also have thicker corpus callosums, so I think it's the combination of those qualities that makes them like a superhuman to me.”

The Comeback makes its comeback on Sunday, November 9.
