Tina Fey Brings the Quotes of the Day

FP_4658328_Bunny_Hop_AAR_030910 - Tina Fey Brings the Quotes of the Day

On being a sex symbol: ‘I cannot do my hair, I cannot do my make-up, and anyone who knows me will tell you I’m the most bedraggled person they have ever seen,’ she says forlornly. ‘I have such a lack of skill in the womanly arts, it’s embarrassing. Well, let’s be honest – the thinking man wants to sleep with the same lady the dumb man does. They all want Jessica Simpson! But I’ll take those compliments for as long as I can because they won’t last for ever. I’ll save all the cuttings so that some day I can look through them.’

On her looks: ‘I’m glad I live in New York, because I think Hollywood would be tough. I mean, I go to the awards ceremonies and even though I’m not big [actually, she’s tiny] I’ll still be the heaviest person there. But that’s OK. My looks aren’t what I bring to the table.’

… says Tina.

I feel her about the womanly arts skills, the only thing i can do to my hair is blow it dry basically 🙂 I wish i had professionals who could do it for me too. But i think she highlights her size a bit too much, maybe she still sees herself bigger than she is, bc she used to be heavier. Truth is, even if she isn’t the most striking woman, she fits in with the other actresses just fine, i think. And she only sees them all dolled up, they might not be all that under all that either.

This just proves how hard we are on ourselves as women. I mean, she is obviously very pretty with great skin, a lovely smile and figure. I have to constantly remind myself that Im not ugly, and I always focus on the bad parts. I think we should all give ourselves a break, lifes too short, and a smile makes everyone look and feel better. We are all beautiful 🙂

They all want to sleep with JESSICA SIMPSOMS? Hahahaha. I know SO many guys, and most of them thinks she’s nothing to brag about. When will girls understand that men all have different tastes? My friends boyfriend loves her big breasts, my best male friend finds big breasts a huge turn-off, and so on. We are all born differently for a reason.

Her point is – men will always go for the looker, no matter how smart you get, if you’re not at least average looking you’re doomed. Cynic and sad? Yep.True? You bet.

“I’m glad I live in New York, because I think Hollywood would be tough. I mean, I go to the awards ceremonies and even though I’m not big [actually, she’s tiny] I’ll still be the heaviest person there. ”
That is horrified me.
This is Hollywood about?! Skinnynes?! 😮 It’s deplorable.

I know what her point is, I just don’t agree with it. I used to think that way too when I was around 15. But I’ve grown up and realized that men aren’t always the pigs us girls make them out to be. The best looking guy I’ve ever seen was with a girl that I cannot describe as anything but ugly. A very sweet girl though, and that was what he saw in her too. No matter what you look like, there will be someone out there who’ll find you beautiful. And this girl is way better looking than… Read more »

I agree with you too, particularly. (quote: realized that men aren’t always the pigs us girls make them out to be)
But … in most of the cases … “men will always go for the looker” 😉
Thanks for reply to my comment. 😀

To be honest she never did bring looks to the table but she’s far from ugly thus surprisingly so id rather be Tina Fey or Chelsea Handler (I’m not saying Tina or Chelsea are ugly but their no Adriana Lima and I’m sure they don’t want to be) then Jess Simpson Alba or alot of these girls who are known just for their looks its not cute! Men want substance ……sex can only be so interesting after so long when that person who is so hot can’t even string sentences together and is incredibly stupid! Don’t be too hard on… Read more »

Biggest person there? What a liar. And if all men want Jessica Simpson, and she’s smaller than Jessica Simpson, then why is it “tough” to live in Hollywood?

The only worse thing than pressuring young girls to lose weight is pressuring them to lose weight over an imaginary size 0 standard that doesn’t actually exist. Thanks for perpetrating that Tina Fey! And I thought you were intelligent.

But Jessica Simpson is different to the “Hollywood norm” in terms of size. The size 0 standard does exist, look at Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan and countless more celebs who are all incredibly skinny these days. Using Jessica Simpson as an example was just not the smartest choice by Fey.

Although those celebrities are all thin, none of them are a size 0.

That’s the thing that bothers me…because my nieces and their friends are slim – size 4’s – and they keep saying they want to be size 0’s like celebrities. The truth is, they ARE the size of most celebrities!

The distortion I think is caused by people saying celebrities are size 0’s, when they’re not.

I think she’s wonderful. As fas as men wanting Jessica SImpon–it’s true, but get this: My ex-husband always though Jessica was hot, because of she’s ditzy, big-breasted, southern, etc, but he’ll give the same sexy comments about Tina. He loves her, as many others do, because she’s witty and has a brain. Just saying the door swings both ways and as far as I’ve seen a lot of men like both it’s just two different facets of what they find sexy…

this annoys me. “i’ll be the heaviest person there. but that’s ok, my looks are not what i bring to the table”. who said being heavier or not being the skinniest there means unattractive? huh? geez! so by that train of thought the skinniest girl there will be the most attractive. that annoys me! why can’t normal size/ bigger people be attractive!? and who the hell says because a girl is skinny that she is automatically attractive!?
