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.
