Tina Fey on Inside The Actors Studio

There are few certainties in life other than death, taxes and the fact that Tina Fey is the coolest lady in the entire world. This fact was further proven to be true by her recent appearance on Bravo’s Inside the Actors Studio, where she charmed the pants off of everyone and turned the pupils of host James Lipton’s eyes into tiny little cartoon hearts.

If you missed it, you can bask in the wonder of Tina Fey below in this excerpt from the show that was featured on NBC News. Make sure to also check out Vulture’s “Best Of” moments of the interview here which includes a seamless Tracy Morgan impression.

Oh, Tina, is there nothing you can’t do?

Inside Tina’s Trousers – A Brief Look at ‘Bossypants’

The always-hilarious Tina Fey has wowed me again once again with her autobiography, Bossypants. Figuratively damn her and her amazing talents!



Despite my jealousy and overwhelming envy of her life, I really enjoyed this book. Like, really enjoyed it. Her ease and grace on the page makes for a splendid read. So, in the fashion of Bossypants’ many life lesson lists, I will list the things that I took away from this book. *Ahem* I’ve learned…

1. To let my body do its thing and not to be too hard on myself. Sometimes I’ll be fat, sometimes I’ll be super skinny. Who really cares? I’m still me.

2. It really doesn’t matter what people think of you, as long as they don’t effect your career. If it does affect your career, the gloves come off. In a… courteous and professional way.

3. Questioning authority is a good thing, especially if what they’re saying doesn’t sit right.

4. Most people who go on cruises are there because they are deathly afraid of flying. A perfectly understandable mindset, because boats don’t sink. Ever.

5. Photo shoots are extremely fun and get you treated like a princess (personally, I wouldn’t say no to experiencing that first-hand someday).

6. And finally, I’ve learned that a lot of male comedy writers pee in jars.

Six simple lessons that probably don’t translate terribly well if you haven’t read the book. Which is why you should read the book. I’m not even being paid to say that (and I normally charge extra for emphatic italics).

As a female comic, Bossypants has forever changed the way I think. So, to you Tina, I say thank-you for the many ‘Ah-Ha’ moments.
