Tina Fey On Being A Four-Eyed Sex Symbol: “I Tend To Look Like Tootsie”

“People certainly have a thing about the glasses. Liz Lemon wore them all the time, and I wore them on ‘Weekend Update’ to see the cue cards. The ones I wore on ’30 Rock’ were fake, but I kept borrowing them for years—I’d take them home and go to the movies. I finally realized they were fake, they did not have my prescription in them. So yes, [they’re] a fetishized object, but I don’t feel like I have to wear them all the time anymore. I try not to wear them if I’m wearing a gown. If I’m too dressed up with glasses, I tend to look like Tootsie.”

I heartily disagree that Tina Fey resembles Tootsie in anyway, glasses or not, gown or jeans. It’s just a case of self-distortion. But I totally understand. Some mornings, I look in the mirror and think my hair looks like a penis. In other news from Tina’s Time Out interview, she admits she has a bit of a crush on Kermit the frog and when asked if she’s a feminist, she replied, “Yeah, sure.” Gotta love the woman.
