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."

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 ... haven't you seen this movie before? Of course you have! Thi ...

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— From “A Majority of One” to “Annie Hall” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, there are wonderful comedies celebrating and satirizing our ethnic differences.

Ariana Grande ‘seems like a toddler throwing a tantrum’ to everyone, basically

Sep 19 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

This is going to be shocking, I know, but Ariana Grande is a diva. And I guess this the week when all of the media outlets decided to call her out. To be fair to Ariana, she might not be AS horrible as “sources” claim. But where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire, and people are starting to go on the record about her shenanigans. Like the Australian photographer who was threatened by Ariana’s goons after she pitched a fit about how she looked in ONE p ...

Now this is something I wouldn’t expect to hear Jane Fonda say!

Hellllllo, Timothy Olyphant. Look at him wearing the hell out of those jeans next to that podium. I almost don’t mind the scuffed up shoes. These are photos from the LA premiere of This Is Where I Leave You. I’m so shocked to see Olyphant at a premiere that I had to put his photos on top.

George Clooney to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes

Sep 16 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Why is George Clooney so needy for attention these days? Or is it not like that at all? I can’t make up my mind. It could be that George has just gotten to a point in his life where he’s just sitting back and letting the fame machine churn out stories and he doesn’t really care. Or it could be that he’s the man behind the curtain and he wants everyone paying attention to him. Which is it? Anyway, there are some ...
