On being the mean girl in school:

I was the mean girl. I admit it openly. That was a disease that had to be conquered. It’s another coping mechanism – it’s a bad coping mechanism – but when you feel less than (in high school everyone feels less than everyone else for different reasons), in your mind it’s a way of leveling the playing field. Though of course it’s not. Saying something terrible about someone else does not actually level the playing field. If I meet a girl of 14 or 15 today who is that kind of girl, I am secretly, in my body, afraid. Even though I’m 45.

On how she didn’t build her career on her looks:

For me it was about hitting age 13 and realizing “OK, I’m not going to glide by on looks. I’m a normal-looking person, but that’s not going to be where my bread is buttered.” The desire to be funny – because you are never actually quite sure if you really are funny – is also a coping mechanism, another way of ingratiating yourself. But when you’re 13 and trying to be funny around boys, you end up mocking them and it backfires. You terrify them.

Tina Fey Brings the Quote of the Day

“People will say, ‘Oh, fashion magazines are so bad, they’re giving girls a negative message’–but we’re also the fattest country in the world, so it’s not like we’re all looking at fashion magazines and not eating. Maybe it just starts a shame cycle: I’m never going to look like that model, so… Chicken McNuggets it …
