Funny woman Tina Fey is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Esquire magazine. While Tina is lookin’ sexy as hell on the cover, she’s lookin’ very much the funny girl in her accompanying photospread. Here is our first look at Tina’s Esquire coverphoto and some excerpts from her interview:
The best doughnut? That’s Peter Pan doughnuts in Brooklyn. It’s a Polish bakery. We shot nearby once for 30 Rock. It’s a white-cream-filled powdered doughnut. And I really believe, when I first tried it, if I had a penis, I would put it in this doughnut. I finally understand what you guys are thinking about and what motivates you guys.
My four-year-old daughter has a pretend hair-and-nail salon, and I was doing her hair and makeup. I said, “Hello ma’am. What’s your name? And what do you do?” And she said, “I get paid to dance at parties.” And I said, “Oh, no. That’s a terrible, terrible answer.”
She says she looks like Barack Obama. I think she heard so many people at that time saying I looked like Sarah Palin, I think she was just trying to get in on that. “I look like Barack Obama.” Okay. Sure.
Twitter seems like a busman’s holiday: just more writing. I have no plans to do it. I’ll just stick with my 24/7 webcam. I’m old-fashioned that way.
Plots we would not do on 30 Rock? Let me put the Internet at ease: Liz and Jack will never be together. Not even if we go fifteen seasons. Okay, if we get to season fifteen, they’ll do it.
I think my level of fame will drop back down. I think it’ll recede. In fact, I know it will. That’s life on planet earth. And I’m okay with that. Besides getting tables at restaurants and special treatment at the airport, what else is there?
After the jump, check out a few photos from Tina’s photoshoot and read some more excerpts from her Esquire coverstory interview …
What goes into a Sarah Palin impression? For me, it was a wig. And gluing down my ears. When I wear that half-up hairdo, my ears stick out. Also overdrawing my lips to make it look like I have bigger lips. Then there’s the Minnesooota Fargo kind of accent. Ya know? And the o’s, and the that, and all that. And smiling when you talk.
I feel that if I do it again, people will be like, ‘Oh, wait a minute. That’s terrible! You never really could do it, could you?’
I’ve got to write that book. I’ve had very little time to work on it. It will be hopefully humorous essays. Not about my neck. It’s actually mostly about how I feel about Nora Ephron’s neck. And I feel great about it. I want her to feel better about it. It’s better than mine.
What I’ve come to realize is that when people say, ‘The thinking man’s whatever’ — there’s no such thing. The thinking man also wants to fuck Megan Fox.
My parents are going to be like, ‘Why did you curse that much in that Esquire article?’
Tina Fey is the bomb!! I am so happy that she will be appearing on Saturday Night Live on May 8 when Betty White is hosting … I can’t even think of a better way to spend a Saturday night — than with 2 of my fave ladies ;) This Esquire piece on Tina looks fantastic. I can’t wait to read the whole thing!
