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 Also Has Zero Chill

Aug 20 2014 1:43pm CDT | Source: IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay.com

  Lindsay Lohan posted this picture of her and Tina Fey on Instagram yesterday, and it’s already been deleted, because as it turns out, the surprise Mean Girls reunion for Entertainment Weekly, was supposed to be just that. A surprise. I guess no so much anymore. Mostly because anytime you involve Lindsay in something, there are variables that nobody can seem to account for in their risk management procedures. Those variables being that Linds ...

Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey Have a Mini-Mean Girls Reunion (PHOTO)

Aug 20 2014 11:51am CDT | Source: Wet Paint

What is with the Mean Girls reunions this summer? Did somebody plan a sequel (well, one that’s not this) and fail to tell us? Because that’s so not fetch. Just a week or so ago we spotted a snap of Amy Poehler mugging alongside fellow Mean Girl alums Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Franzese. They were living it up at the Chateau Marmont “celebrating a bday and an Emmy nom” (Masters of Sex star Lizzy and Parks and Recreation funnywoman Amy each got one). Flash-forward a handful of days and who ...
