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.

So Not Fetch: The MPAA Tried To Give “Mean Girls” An R Rating

“We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Alessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Alessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even. … The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because ‘Anchorma’n had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”

In honor of the 10th anniversary of “Mean Girls” (gah, I’m old), director Mark Waters shared 10 juicy behind-the-scenes tales from Tina Fey’s best movie ever. In addition to sharing that Rachel McAdams was almost cast as Cady Heron, Amanda Seyfried was almost cast as Regina George, and Amy Poehler was almost not cast at all, Waters shared a particularly sexist struggle that the filmmakers had with the MPAA board. The movie ratings organization is notoriously more condemnatory when it’s female sexual pleasure onscreen (rather than male) as well as slang words about female anatomy. (Watch the documentary “This Film Is Not Yet Rated” for so much appalling shit about the MPAA.) Not surprisingly, the latter was absolutely true in the case of “Mean Girls,” where the filmmakers had to fight valiantly to keep in the phrase “wide-set vagina.” Oh, Tina Fey. Keep on fighting the good fight. [NYMag.com]

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler’s First Promo For The Golden Globes Is Here!

golden globes tina amy
Tina & Amy Have Still Got It

Oh, yes, it’s that time of year (again). Where did the time go? It feels like just last week we were advocating for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host everything. So far we can only get them to agree to host the 2014 Golden Globes again. The first promo debuted last night during “The Sound Of Music,” although I missed it because Carrie Underwood’s singing was annoying me so I turned it off halfway through. Anywho, set your Tivos for Sunday, January 12!

Style 911: “Help Me Tina Fey’s Red Dress From The ‘Saturday Night Live’ Premiere!”

Style 911: "Help Me Tina Fey's Red Dress From The 'Saturday Night Live' Premiere!"

HELP! I just watched Tina Fey’s ‘SNL’ episode that premiered a few weeks ago and I am obsessed with the red dress she is wearing in the opening monologue. The only links I could find with “Tina Fey” and “red dress” were pretty much only concerned with her recent nip slip and not her actual dress- ha! Help me out, please! – Katy

First of all, Katy, I would like to apologize for the delay in responding to your request. Damn Gmail and it’s weird sorting! Anyway, I wasn’t able to figure out who designed the dress Tina was wearing during her opening monologue oh so many weeks ago, but let’s face it, it was probably a high-end designer piece with a hefty price tag. The good news is that this particular silhouette is everywhere and there were so many similar options that I actually had to narrow it down to just seven — three with similar short and/or cap-sleeves, and four with slightly longer or three-quarter sleeves. But all in bright fire engine red. Check ‘em out below! Keep reading »

Tina Fey Producing A New Comedy Series — But It’s Not About Abducted Girls

Tina Fey Producing A New Comedy Series -- But It's Not About Abducted Girls

Tina Fey is producing a new NBC series, and no, the show is not about girls who have been abducted, as was previously rumored. It was also believed that NBC wasn’t too thrilled with the script and was worried that it may be offensive. As it turns out, the series will tell the story of a woman who escaped a doomsday cult and is starting her life over in New York City. Insert sigh of relief. I’m not so sure a comedy about abduction would’ve been too funny.

Ellie Kemper, who played the hilarious Erin on “The Office,” will star in the series. Fey will write and produce the show with David Miner and Robert Carlock. The show will debut in fall 2014 — and we’re already excited. [Dallas VoiceDefamerABC News]

“Saturday Night Live”‘s “Girls” Promo Features A New, Rubber-Handed Albanian Roommate Played By Tina Fey

"Saturday Night Live"'s "Girls" Promo Features A New, Rubber-Handed Albanian Roommate Played By Tina Fey
"Please, may I eat donut from your head?"

Who’s excited for the third season of “Girls”?! I am, especially after seeing this new promo which indicates the show is finally getting a dose of real diversity. Hannah has a new roommate — and she’s from Albania! Surely nothing will make whiny twentysomethings Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa realize how good they have it like hearing the sad story behind Blerta’s rubber hand. Right?

Connie Britton, Tina Fey, Michelle Dockery, And Elisabeth Moss Had Dinner And Didn’t Invite Us

You guys, it was SO hard not to put a frowning emoticon at the end of the headline of this post. I mean, I think of Connie Britton as my Best Friend Forever that I just haven’t quite met yet (cue Michael Bublé singing our theme song), so whenever she plans something fun and doesn’t include me, I feel very hurt (and yes, I do realize how completely stalker-ish that sounds, and no, I’m not getting help). So for her to plan a pre-Emmys dinner with my other BFFIHMY (Best Friend Forever I Haven’t Met Yet) Tina Fey, plus “Downton Abbey”‘s Michelle Dockery and “Mad Men”‘s Elisabeth Moss? Man, that one stings. The only way this dinner roster could have been better is if Christina Hendricks replaced Elisabeth Moss, because, as Amelia pointed out, “Don’t need no Scientology chatter while I eat!” Other than that though, this really is like one of those fantasy dinner parties come to life, and I look forward to my invitation not getting lost in the mail next time.

You’re nobody in Hollywood until you’ve had a nip slip at a major awards show. That means Tina Fey has finally made it. While accepting her Emmy last night, some hawk-eyed viewer whose job it is to watch the Emmy’s specifically for nipple, spotted Tina’s exposed teet for one millisecond and alerted the internet at large. Sadly, it was the most exciting thing that happened during the show. You can see her NSFW nipple and areola in all their Tina Fey glory after the jump. This changes absolutely nothing about how we feel about her. [Elvis Duran] Keep reading »
