I lurve her.
Tina Fey is the November cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar, and the cover shot is… interesting. It’s not that Tina doesn’t look pretty, but I just don’t get the “surprised” look on her face. Maybe she’s trying to show us she doesn’t use Botox? Perhaps. Tina’s a lovely woman, and I’m not really sure if this cover does her justice. The rest of the photos are pretty good though - any of them would have made a prettier cover (see slideshow here). The interview is great too. Tina, obviously, has a gift for one-liners and great, concise comments on pretty much any subject. Here are some of the greatest hits from the interview (complete interview here):
Tina on her daily routine: “Work, come home, play, kid bounce, work again, go to bed.”[From Harper’s Bazaar]
On her insanely busy schedule: “Sometimes I’ll be telling my husband [composer Jeff Richmond], ‘I think I’m cracking up. Sometimes you just need a minute to say, ‘I think I’m cracking’ and just acknowledge it. Last weekend, she started chanting, ‘Daddy is my mom! Daddy is my mom!’”
On playing Sarah Palin: “I feel like I’ve probably not worn that wig for the last time. At some point, it will come out of the closet.”
On her new hobby, shopping: “I’ve been shopping. I am no longer the least stylish woman in the room.”
On relating to her 30 Rock alter-ego Liz Lemon: “I wanted her to be believable, and she’s based on a version of myself from before. Being a writer and first moving to New York … a lot of women live like that. It’s not that there is anything wrong with them or they are not together, intelligent, attractive women. It’s just that the numbers are off or something.”
On Botox: “You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don’t think Botox is for me. I think it is bad. People who have too much, they look like their faces are full of candles — a shiny, shiny face. Yes, festive. A holiday candle.”
On being vain: “I have the camera frame me from the waist up. Sometimes. If there is a shot that is bad, I can take it out. That is why L.A. is so bad, because they can take your picture from any side. That is why people in L.A. maintain 360 degree fitness. I don’t have that kind of time.”
On her now-trademark glasses: “I don’t wear them very much in real life because I need them to see only far away. And I don’t wear them when I am dressed up, because then I would look like Tootsie. It is funny because some of the grandma, old Dynasty-style lighting tricks that I’d like to be able to do are problematic with glasses. You see the lighting instruments. You may see Lemon start taking her glasses off more and more frequently as the season goes on so it becomes Barbara Walters.”
On working out: “I like to delude myself that I’m in the old-Hollywood mode. I just tailor my clothes well and try to keep my skin clear. While it would be great to work out an hour a day, there is something inherently sort of selfish about it. I can’t do it.”
My favorite part is when she talks about the old tricks some shows or programs use to make the older ladies look good. Some shows really did stuff like Vaseline on the camera lens, or either very, very soft lighting or too-bright “everything gets blown out” lighting. That’s what The View does - those ladies are practically glowing they’re so blown out. Man, I can’t wait for 30 Rock’s premiere. According to NBC’s 30 Rock website, it’s going to be next Thursday at 9:30 Eastern. Cannot. Wait. Lemon!
