Chelsea Handler values "realness" in her friends.

The talk show host insists her close pals Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are very down-to-earth and she would never treat them differently because of their fame.

She said: "Jennifer Aniston is one of the most down-to-earth, low-key people I know. She's just a regular girl. And Reese is the same way. I mean you can't have friendships that aren't based on realness.

"I'm not going to treat them any differently than I would any other of my friends. I mean, Jen and Justin [Theroux] came to my house for Thanksgiving with 18 of my staff members. And so what?"

Chelsea, 36, values her female friendships and thinks it is important to praise other people and help them to do well.

She added in an interview with the new issue of Redbook magazine: "I read this cheesy quote once; 'Blowing out someone else's candle doesn't make your glow brighter.' We women have to stick together.

"People ask me why I'm so hard on men. It's because they've gotten a really easy ride. And it's not that I think women should take over the world. But I do think it should be 50/50.

"I'm very much about letting other people shine, because it makes us all shine brighter. I like having a fraternity. I like girls and boys together, Misfits and underdogs - I love underdogs."
