is one of the funniest women on screen and she says that she would love to write about her famous friends in her new memoir.
The 43-year-old actor, who has just released her memoir, Yes Please, does not think it is fair that female comediennes, including her friends Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling and Rachel Dratch, are 'lumped together'.
She insists they are all unique and special so would love to write about them, reported Contactmusic.
"My dream would be to write a book about my talented and famous friends and just spend a chapter on each. It would be a dream not only because it'd be so easy to write about how much I love their hearts and their work, but also because I wouldn't have to write about myself."
"When you're a 'woman in comedy,' you're all kind of lumped together in this weird soup, whereas if you go back and read the books of any of these women, you're reminded of how different and unique and special and interesting and specifically skilled everybody is," she said.
