Tina Fey wants children to avoid acting career

Jun 29 2013, 10:36pm CDT | by

Los Angeles, June 30 (IANS) Actress-writer Tina Fey says she wants her daughters to avoid acting as a career option and rather urges them to consider being a writer.

Los Angeles, June 30 — Actress-writer Tina Fey says she wants her daughters to avoid acting as a career option and rather urges them to consider being a writer.

The 43-year-old has two daughters, Alice, seven, and 22-month-old Penelope with husband Jeff Richmond.

The "30 Rock" star wants them 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.

"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,'" contactmusic.com quoted Fey as saying.

"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," she said.

I wrote last year about the basic rhythms of the festival – its hugely packed schedule an ...

Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey Planning Mean Girls Sequel? Not So Fast…

Aug 27 2014 2:51pm CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Instagram) Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey are planning a Mean Girls sequel, reports In Touch. The trashy tabloid says the stars’ recent time together was about more than just a friendly reunion. “As soon as Lindsay came back to New York, she met with Tina, because Tina is in talks to do another Mean Girls sequel,” a so-called “insider” tells In Touch. “Obviously this would be huge for Lindsay.” That may be true… but this rumor isn’t. Fey and Lohan were not meeting about a Mean Girls f ...

Leonardo DiCaprio gave $100k to ALS & more superheros do the challenge

Aug 27 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I apologize for using a misleading photo of Anthony Mackie as a lead-in to this post. Leo has looked pretty rough lately. He’s enjoying too much of the good life. Leo has been sharing the wealth by donating $7 million to ocean conservation. Part of that money offsets his huge carbon footprint, but it’s better than nothing. Leo has also done the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He filmed his video from Lake Athabasca wh ...

NBC The Oscars are the ultimate awards show. The Grammys always bring amazing performances. The Emmys? Ehhh. It’s often the same shows winning year after year, so the awards can be a bit of a snooze.

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. T ...
