Photos and Quotes From Tina Fey in Vogue Magazine 2010-02-12 11:00:00

Tina Fey Is Just Another Normal Girl on the Cover of Vogue

Tina Fey has the honor of being on Vogue's March cover, though she makes it clear in the accompanying interview that she doesn't consider herself a fashion icon. Her gorgeous photos might indicate otherwise, though — make sure to check out a behind the scene video of her shoot. Tina opened up to the magazine ahead of Date Night's opening on April 9, chatting all about fashion, that Palin impression, being normal, and her amazing year. Here's more:

  • On being the poster-woman for normalcy: "I feel like I represent normalcy in some way. What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there's me, carrying normalcy — me and Rachael Ray."
  • On one of the highlights from the last year: "Oprah came to my apartment. Oprah and Gayle were in my apartment, and they stayed for hours. It's like the most amazing thing that can happen to a white woman in the twenty-first century."
  • On weighing herself: "I don't weigh myself. I just go by if my clothes fit. I try not to participate too much in the incredible amount of wasted energy that women have around dealing with food. I just feel like being healthy is sort of a job requirement to be on TV, and being a writer is so much coping with fatigue and stress, and you just eat. You eat to stay awake."

To read what Tina has to say about her fashion from the past and dressing for the Oscars, just


  • On one of her favorite Halloween costumes from her childhood: "It consisted of a bonnet, and a burlap apron and a long skirt. And I would just wear it sometimes after school . . . As an outfit . . . It was the Bicentennial! People were excited!"
  • On what to expect from her Oscar dress: "I only know that this dress will have to be 'fancier' than a Golden Globes dress, but I wouldn't hold your breath to see me in a four-foot ruffled train with an origami-inspired front. Whatever it is, it will be see-through, because that is my trademark."
  • On dressing for the red carpet: "Whenever I work with a stylist, I always find myself saying the same thing: 'I want my dress to say, I'm just here from New York.' That's why I always end up in black or brown. If I try to wear too much color, I feel like I'm pretending to be from Los Angeles and I'm not getting away with it. But up until the last couple of years I always felt like, 'Well, I'm really a writer; I'm more about content, so if I really blow it with this dress, it's fine.' Someone once gave me a great piece of advice: 'When you go to the Oscars, don't dress like you're never going to go anywhere again.' Don't take such a big swing."

She doesn't do anything except apparently do Weight Watchers. FabSugar - Though she lost a a lot of weight doing it. Good for her. Interesting to note the type of women that other women come to the defense of. Fey is no less "real" and "hardworking" than a Jennifer Aniston. But that woman gets trashed by the majority of people in these forums. They both are displaying tons of skin in their self promotions but one is reviled and the other is loved. Interesting.

I love her too. And I think she represents as close to normal as you can get in Hollywood. Most of us have the "genes" required to not worry about eating - we just f*ck it up for ourselves by developing bad habits. You don't get fat by accident unless it's a health issue that you have NO control over. She didn't say she doesn't have to do anything, she is saying she doesn't allow herself to obsess about it. Big difference. You don't have to obsess about it if you make good choices.

And if you have the genes required not to worry about eating and exercise then you can bloviate on how you shouldn't worry about such things. And no, I don't think she represents normalcy at all. Nobody in entertainment does. Their life in their little bubble is so far removed from how the rest of the population go about their lives.
