Lisa Kudrow: Gay men are biologically superior

Nick Duffy October 24, 2014

Former Friends star Lisa Kudrow has claimed that gay men are biologically superior, because they have better brains.

The actress – who is currently starring in a revival of sitcom ‘The Comeback’ – was speaking to PrideSource when she claimed gay men were more in touch with the show.

She said: “[The Comeback co-creator] Michael Patrick King said, ‘You understand how this will go: First it’s gonna be the gays, then the women, then everyone else.’]

“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.

“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.”

She also revealed that she had been approached to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race, saying: “You know, I’ve been asked to, but I don’t know how [The Comeback character] Valerie works on a talk show or as a judge.

“I don’t know. I’m thinking about it. I’m trying to figure out how it works. I don’t wanna say no!”
