Dishing on her girl crush Lena Dunham, Melissa McCarthy opens up to The Advocate in its June/July 2014 issue.

The “Bridesmaids” funny girl stated, “The more I watch Girls, the more I realize I'm crazy about Lena Dunham. She's my girl crush. She's smart, funny, confident, and she isn't afraid to look awkward. She's exactly who she is, take it or leave it. Nothing's more charming than someone who doesn't take herself too seriously.”

McCarthy also chatted about her early 20s when she used to date gay men.

McCarthy stated, "There were so many. In my early 20s I was like the last stop before a guy said, 'Yep, it's official: I'm gay.' I'd be like, 'Really?!' I'd think, 'But he's so funny, charming and such a good dresser.' I never saw it coming."

The star finished the interview dialoging about her husband and daughters. When asked how she handles the topic of same-sex couples for her children, she doesn’t believe it requires discussion.

"Well, I actually love that I don't really have to talk about it, either," she says. "Our friends at the table are gay couples, and my kids have friends with same-sex parents. It's just a part of this next generation, so there's no need to explain it,” Melissa stated.
