Tina Fey warns her children against acting careers

Jun 29 2013, 3:34am CDT | by

Tina Fey has urged her daughters to become writers, not actresses.

The '30 Rock' creator has revealed that she will encourage her two girls - Alice, seven, and 22-month-old Penelope - to pursue a behind the scenes career if they want to follow in her footsteps in TV because she thinks writing is just as important as acting.

Speaking to HELLO! magazine, she said: "I once showed Alice a clip from the Broadway production of a 'Little Mermaid'. About five seconds in, she pointed to one of the actresses saying, 'I want to be her!'

"I was saying, 'Oh no honey, you don't want to be her, you want to be the person who writes the lines she says!' "

When asked what she tells her girls about her professional life, Tina said: "That it's at least as interesting to be working behind the scenes as it is in front of them."

The 'Mean Girls' writer and star believes she has former United States governor Sarah Palin - who became a notorious figure in the 2008 presidential election - to thank for her success in Hollywood because they look so much alike.

Tina decided to perform skits as Palin on sketch show 'Saturday Night Live', which made her a household name.

She reminisced: "I happened to be in the right place at the right time to progress in 'Saturday Night Live', then a giant piece of luck came along in that I happen to look like Sarah Palin. There's no way you could have predicted that something like that could've happened to me."

Lindsay Lohan Reveals Hilarious Five-Year Plan: Mean Girls 2, An Oscar, Probably a Unicorn

Sep 25 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Even though Lindsay Lohan's stage debut in London was an utter disaster, the troubled "actress" remains as delusional as ever when discussing her future. In a recent interview to promote her thus-far disastrous turn in David Mamet's Speed the Plow, LiLo discussed her five year plan and it's every bit as insane as you might expect. "In five years I would like to be married and have children and hopefully be at the Oscars, but that's as far as it go ...

Lindsay Lohan forgot her lines during the first performance of ‘Speed-the-Plow’

Sep 25 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Ugh, where to start? Last night was Lindsay Lohan’s first night of her London show, Speed-the-Plow. The reviews were pretty bad, which we expected. Apparently, Lindsay kept forgetting her lines. To the point where even when she was trying to be serious and dramatic, the audience laughed at her. Some declared her an “embarrassment.” Some say that if she simply learns her lines, the play might be okay. Oh, and ...

Sep 24 2014 8:56pm CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Time Out London) Lindsay Lohan has an idea for a Mean Girls sequel that sounds equal parts awesomely ridiculous and ridiculously awesome. As Gossip Cop recently reported, though Lohan and Tina Fey recently spent time together for the film’s anniversary, there are no active talks for a follow-up. Lohan, when asked about the flick in a new interview, says, “People really love the movie: how do you top that?” “I was with Tina Fey the other day and I ...

Everyone Hates Ariana Grande–Even Her Life Coach!

Sep 22 2014 4:47pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

People who define themselves as a “life coach” are usually former-weed-dealers-slash-yoga-fanatics who feel that their super chill vibe qualifies them as some sort of expert. And those who would employ such a person aren’t much brighter, in my opinion. I bring this up because even someone as irrelevant as a “life coach” had too much pride to deal with client Ariana Grande. “He just couldn’t take it anymore,” says a spy close ...

8 (4) Films That Remind Us That All Families Are Dysfunctional

Sep 20 2014 1:07pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Starting today, the film This Is Where I Leave You takes a look at a family reunited during the aftermath of its patriarch's death. Heavy stuff, right? But from the preview (above) and the 2009 book that serves as source material, it clearly applies a lighter touch. The cast is, without a doubt, grade A, with Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, that gangly guy from Girls, and Jane Fucking Fonda, but the premise is, well . ...
