Tina Fey recently did an interview with the Daily Mail. One of the big questions for the ridiculously busy and hilarious comedian, actress, writer and producer was…will she have more kids? So will she?
She told them that, “I don’t know. I’m 39 now – I’m getting up there!” And she not only has her hands full with her amazing career but she has a three year old to attend to as well.
When asked if she thought her daughter Alice would ever get into show biz she stated, “Knowing her, I can’t imagine her doing anything else. She’s much more outgoing than I ever was as a child – I think she takes after my husband in that sense.” But she realizes that being a child star has it’s own set of issues. She said, citing her own experience with child starlets, “Lindsay [Lohan] was 17 when she did [Mean Girls] and she was brilliant. But to have success and money at that age has got to be overwhelming. No one tells you ‘No,’ and I definitely wouldn’t want that for my child. I’d try to make her do theater first because you learn a real work ethic there, and we’d certainly try and make her wait until she’s done school. But Lindsay was a lovely girl,” she adds, “very smart and very funny – and I hold out hope that we’ll see some really good work from her again.”
So how does she do it all? Apparently she doesn’t: “I never really believed it before, but when you have a child, there really aren’t enough hours in the day to do anything. I had to go for a dental checkup the other day and they were going, ‘Can you floss and then rub your gums with this?,’ and I was thinking, ‘Are you serious? It’s just not going to happen.’ Basically, any free time that isn’t spent looking after our daughter or working goes on sleeping, but every other week my husband and I will try to get out and have a date night, even though we never really call it that. It feels like such an effort, because all we want to do is go to bed, but we force ourselves to put on clothes – although it never actually gets to the point where I would put on a dress. And definitely not one with a corset.”
And what is her daily life like? “My daily life consists of going to work or being at home, so when I do interviews I always forget to muster up some kind of personality. Two hours from now, I’ll be going, ‘I really should have tried to jazz that up a little’.”
Yeah, she’s doing just fine, she doesn’t have to jazz it up for anyone.
