Funny woman Tina Fey took a break from her busy filming schedule to pose for the November issue of Harper's Bazaar. Tina recently finished shooting Date Night with Steve Carell and has been hard at work on the upcoming season of Emmy-winning 30 Rock — which premieres next week, get a peek at it now. Inside the magazine she gives her humorous take on being a working mom, yoga and keeping up appearances. Here are highlights:
- On working out: "I'll do grave yoga. Someone can come and stretch me in my grave. 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 appearances: "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. 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."
- On juggling it all: "Sometimes I'll be telling my husband 'I think I'm cracking up'. Sometimes you just need a minute to say, 'I think I'm cracking' and just acknowledge it."
To see what she has to say about her character Liz Lemon, the Emmys and more photos
- On her character 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 her Emmy style: "When it comes to going to the Emmys, say, people always say, 'You should wear some color,' but I always wear gunmetal or black."
