Tina Fey: “I’m a normal-looking person”

2F7B8CF300000578-3365886-image-a-8_1450452958878 - Tina Fey:

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.

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.’

Tina Fey Brings the Quote of the Day

vogue - 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 is! And conversely, I don’t look at models who are crazy skinny and think I want to look like that, because a lot of them are gigantic, with giant hands and giant feet.”

… says Tina in Vogue Magazine

P.S.: Tina is looking quite skinny on that cover.

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 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.”

On her new hobby, shopping:  “I’ve been shopping. I am no longer the least stylish woman in the room.”

Golden Globes Parade – Mega Gallery

Fabulous (with some not-so-fabulous exceptions) dresses overload! Here’s a mega gallery featuring the rest of the Golden Globes’ dresses!

Just to mention a few: Demi Moore chose a very flattering pastel gown, while America Ferrera looked slimmer than usual in a puffy midi-dress.

Anne Hathaway‘s dress looked great, but it gave Anne a fuller lower abdomen, while Heidi Klum looked slim and fit, but thought that gladiator shoes were a good choice for such an event.

Eva Mendes is thin enough to pull off a giant… stuff attached to her dress, while Penelope looked a little V-shaped in a champagne dress.

Tina Fey went for a bold, low cut neck line and Lisa Rinna‘s shoulders looked quite bony in a revealing dress.

Miley Cyrus was quite cleavagey for 16, and Salma was her usual mega-cleavagey, tiny-waisted self.

Check out the pictures in the gallery and say your thoughts!
