From Helen Mirren and Nicole Kidman to Amy Poehler and Tori Spelling, our favorite female celebrities confess their same-sex attractions and obsessions exclusively to our brother site, The Advocate.

Cameron Diaz: Pamela Anderson

“I had a major girl crush on Pamela Anderson,” admitted Cameron Diaz in a 2006 interview with The Advocate. “Still do — she’s hot as ever — but she was my first. When I first discovered her I was like, Wow, she’s so beautiful!"


Emma Stone: Christina Hendricks

Who is Emma Stone’s girl crush? Mad Men’s curvaceous Christina Hendricks. “It’s a no-brainer,” said the Easy A star in an August 2011 interview with The Advocate. “Everything about her does it for me. That’s my kind of woman."


Christina Hendricks: Zooey Deschanel

Does the crush-worthy Christina Hendricks have a girl crush of her own? “Probably Zooey Deschanel,” said the Mad Men star in a 2009 interview with The Advocate. “My fiancé [Geoffrey Arend] is in 500 Days of Summer with her, so I’ve seen that movie three times in a row, and I’m like, God, I love watching her! I find her very unique and interesting. She’s lovely."


Zooey Deschanel: Tina Fey

Who is your girl crush, Zooey Deschanel? “That’s a really hard question and certainly not one to be taken lightly,” said the Our Idiot Brother star in an April 2011 interview with The Advocate. “Christina Hendricks is so pretty and such a good actress, but I’ll go with Tina Fey because she’s so funny. A sense of humor really does it for me."

Helen Mirren: Ellen DeGeneres

Whom would Helen Mirren pick to play her on-screen love interest? “I would just want a wonderful actress, gay or straight, but I certainly wouldn’t say no to Ellen DeGeneres,” said the majestic star of The Queen in a 2010 interview with The Advocate. “I’m such a huge fan of hers and I’ve loved her from a distance for such a long time, so it was quite a moment for me this year to do her show, stand on her set, and see her right there in front of me."


Nicole Kidman: Sophia Loren

Which female star’s body does Nicole Kidman idealize? “I love Sophia Loren,” she professed in a 2006 interview with The Advocate. “She’s gorgeous."


Tori Spelling: Angelina Jolie

If Lifetime cast her as a lesbian in a prison-themed movie of the week, whom would Tori Spelling pick to play her cellmate? Angelina Jolie. “She’s really tough, so she’d protect me, and she’s really hot, so I could make out with her,” said the So NoTORIous star in a 2006 interview with The Advocate. “Either way, I win."


Kyra Sedgwick: Jodie Foster

“I can certainly see why women would fall in love with women for sure,” said Kyra Sedgwick in a 2007 interview with The Advocate. “Girl crushes happen all the time.” But after past on-screen dalliances with Helen Mirren, Juliana Margulies, and Paulina Porizkova, with which actress would the Closer star want a fictional affair next? “Jodie Foster. She totally does it for me. I think she’s so amazing. And Salma Hayek. That would be really hot."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Jane Lynch

“Jane Lynch! That’s definitely who I would become a lesbian for,” exclaimed the New Adventures of Old Christine star in a 2008 interview with The Advocate. “Oh, my God, she is so fantastic and funny. I love her."


Jennifer Jason Leigh: Samantha Morton

If Jennifer Jason Leigh were to play a lesbian, whom would she pick to play her on-screen lover? “Oh, that’s such a good question,” purred the Margot at the Wedding star in a 2007 interview with The Advocate. “Probably Samantha Morton, just because I think she’s a genius and I’d go see her in anything. I would love to work with her in any way."


Ke$ha: Rihanna

Who would Ke$ha invite to an all-girl sleepover?
 “Oh, my God, my fantasy would be Rihanna,” said the singer in a 2010 interview with The Advocate. “We recently started being friends, and I think she is really cool.” Who else? “I would want Shakira to come because she is so hot. I would also invite Sarah Palin, and I would put her hand in hot water to piss herself."


Martha Plimpton: Mary Catherine Garrison

“I have a total girl crush on this actress that’s in Top Girls, Mary Catherine Garrison,” said the Raising Hope star about her Broadway costar in a 2008 interview with The Advocate. “I adore her. But I only heard that expression for the first time last year. I’m kind of a dork. It takes me a long time to catch up."

Maya Rudolph: Michelle Williams

Does Maya Rudolph have a girl crush? “Michelle Williams immediately comes to mind,” said the Saturday Night Live alum in a 2009 interview with The Advocate. “She’s so beautiful, and there’s something very special about her. I’ve never met her, but I’m always like, ‘She’s a really fucking good actress.’"


Mo’Nique: Ginger Grant

Mo’Nique’s celebrity girl crush? Ginger, the glamorous fictional character played by Tina Louise on Gilligan’s Island. “Baby, that bitch was always sexy,” said the Precious star in a 2010 interview with The Advocate. “Do you hear me? On an island — listen to me! Had new gowns every day, makeup and hair was beat — wasn’t no damn makeup artist there! Ginger pulled it together every day, baby!"


Amy Poehler: Shane McCutcheon

The most important gay person in Amy Poehler’s life? Shane McCutcheon, the fictional character played by Katherine Moennig on Showtime’s The L Word. “She just can’t get her shit together,” explained the Parks and Recreation star in a 2009 interview with The Advocate. “She’s a broken bird, and she needs someone to fix her. Just when you think she’s ready for love, she sabotages it. And the woman gives a rock ’n’ roll haircut."


Anna Faris: Charlize Theron

“I’ve got to say Charlize Theron really intrigues me,” said The House Bunny’s Anna Faris in a 2008 interview with The Advocate. “She’s not only beautiful, but she seems like she has a good sense of humor; she’s a pretty chill girl. And Jessica Biel’s got a great toned body, but I would be pretty star-struck to meet Charlize, and I probably wouldn’t be able to help but admire her beauty."

Molly Shannon: Ashley Dupré

“I have lots of girl crushes,” declared Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon in a 2008 interview with The Advocate. “I love Gwyneth Paltrow, and I want to read all about her life and her husband, but it’s not sexual. For getting down and dirty, I’d like someone like [former New York governor Eliot Spitzer’s former mistress] Ashley Dupré — a real trashy, big-boobed, ankle bracelet–wearing, French-manicured hooker.”
