Melissa McCarthy‘s friends can’t get any better!

The Can You Ever Forgive Me? Star, 48, shared who she most admired in Hollywood in InStyle’s February issue and included a few memorable names, including Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman.

“I love that Jennifer Aniston, that little nugget. That’s a person to the soles of her feet,” she revealed. “Just solid, good.”

As for Kidman, 51, McCarthy said the Destroyer actress is “a smart, non-bull—- puppy.”

“She isn’t going to mince words, isn’t going to try to play the game. She’s got a hell of a picker,” McCarthy shared. “She picks [movies] that are really interesting, and she’s not concerned about how they may be seen.”

Someone quite like Kidman is Vice actress Amy Adams, McCarthy said.

“Amy Adams is the same. I love that she is starting to produce. I would like Amy Adams to run for president. I think the world would be better in general,” she said. “I’d like Viola Davis to wake me up every morning and be like, ‘Here’s your thought for the day,’ and I’d literally write it down.”
