Chelsea Handler wouldn't date herself.

The 41-year-old star understands why people may be put off from dating her because she is "loud" and agrees that she probably wouldn't go on a date with herself if she had the choice.

She said: "I don't think loud women are that attractive, I get it. If I wasn't me, I wouldn't be into me either, I get that, but it's necessary. We've come a long way and we have a long way to go and so do a million other people.

"It's not just about being a woman, it's about being a million things. It's also about everybody being equal, and so I think that's a really important issue for me and it's about getting that messaging out and just being fun and cool and informative and doing what you can in your little way to contribute."

Chelsea is now hosting her own eponymous Netflix show and feels "more adult" as she is able to speak out about the important issues.

She told Australia's Fairfax Media: "I feel free, I feel more adult. I feel like I just got my s**t together a little bit more. People come to me for information that they normally wouldn't come to [me for]. I definitely command a different level of respect from people, so that's good ...

"I don't think I'm that important, but I do think that I have an opportunity and I don't want to squander it. I do think it's important to look around and notice that just because something doesn't affect you maybe in your small life, it does definitely affect people around you and you've got to do what you can. You've got to do something. I don't have a family to raise. I don't have kids to worry about. I have no excuse not to get involved, so that's my reasoning."
