Emma Stone may not like item No. 8 on Nickelodeon star Jennette McCurdy's birthday wish list, but she—and most people—may concur with No. 9.

The actress, who reprises her iCarly role of Sam Puckett on the cable channel's spinoff Sam & Cat and shares a birthday with co-star Ariana Grande, posted on Thursday, June 26, a tweet titled "22 Things I Want For My 22nd Birthday." McCurdy, who is followed by more than 5.4 million people on Twitter, turned 22 that day.

Among the highlights of the satirical "rant"-like list: McCurdy wants Andrew Garfield, Stone's boyfriend and co-star in The Amazing Spider-Man movies, "to be single" (No. 8), "people to stop trying to make me watch Orange is the New Black" (No. 11—and you'll come around eventually, Jennette) and "to be 12 years old again" (No. 12).

The former child star, whose former show iCarly featured Stone as a guest star in 2012, has talked about her crush on Garfield in the past.

McCurdy and also wants "this U.S. soccer s--t to make sense" (No. 21). McCurdy had tweeted her support for Team USA during its match against Portugal in the 2014 FIFA World Cup on June 22. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. The U.S. lost 0-1 against Germany on Thursday but still advanced in the soccer championship.

And millions of people would probably agree with No. 9 on McCurdy's list, which should be among food scientists' top priorities: "French fries to have zero calories."

On a more serious note, earlier this month, McCurdy revealed that she was dedicating her birthday to kids who are patients of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The actress, whose mother died nine months ago after battling cancer, shared a fundraising website. As of Friday, June 27, more than $3,600 has been donated.

Main iCarly alum Miranda Cosgrove shared a birthday message for her former co-star and posted a photo of the two on her Instagram page.

"Happy Birthday @jennettemccurdy!" she said. "Thanks for being such a great friend and always being there...with friends like you who needs a therapist? #22"
