The Absolutely Fabulous star explained that she doesn't quite understand why reality television shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians have become so popular.
"I came to the Kardashians a bit late, and I'm still just gob-smacked," Saunders told New York Magazine, adding: "Who are these people?"
She continued: "These kind of near-reality, not-really-realities, reality shows, we have them over here now: The Only Way Is Essex, Made in Chelsea. They're just full of freaks.
"There was only one Kardashian and then suddenly we're interested in three. I just find it so depressing - in a funny way. It's gotten to a point where even [Absolutely Fabulous characters] Eddy and Patsy aren't interested."
Saunders recently revealed that she is "definitely doing" the much-anticipated Absolutely Fabulous movie.
