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.

When comedian Amy Poehler was in her 20s, she read her boyfriend's journal and found out that he didn't think that she was pretty. "It was almost like an itch being scratched, which was, 'Ah-ha!

Oct 21 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

#457576168 / gettyimages.com Jennifer Lawrence did not wear Dior last night to the Elle Women in Hollywood event. I’m pretty shocked but pleased to see her step outside the comfort zone.

You can see the (unlined) runway version here. Jennifer’s version looks better than the runway. She looks fresh and pretty. The dress bo ...

Enquirer: Ben Affleck was so flabby on Batman set they had to use a body double

Oct 10 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m putting the source right there in the title because it’s possible this is creative fiction. It’s funny as hell to consider, which is why I’m repeating it. According to Mike Walker’s column in the National Enquirer, Ben Affleck refused to use the trainer that the studio hired him to buff up for his Batfleck part. Ben used a dude that Matt Damon recommended, and he allegedly failed to reach Batman level ...
