Most people associate Tina Fey
for her hilarious impersonations of Sarah Palin and her work on 30 Rock
, a sitcom loosely based on her experiences at Saturday Night Live
. But there's so much more to the 38-year-old comedian. Fey tells it all in Vanity Fai
r's January issue, where she also appears on the cover.
As a writer, comedian, actress and producer, Fey has won five Emmys, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award. After serving as writer on Saturday Night Live
in 1997, she was eventually promoted to the position of head writer in 1999 and was added to the cast of the sketch comedy program in 2000. She left Saturday Night Live
to create her own television series called 30 Rock
, where she plays Liz Lemon, the head writer of a fictional sketch comedy show. Though the sitcom struggled in the ratings for two years, it was deemed a critical success, winning seven Emmy's last fall and catapulting Fey into red-hot territory.
While Fey's accomplishments in the entertainment industry are no secret to the public, not everyone knows that when it comes to her looks, she's both forgiving and self-deprecating.
“The most I've changed pictures out of vanity was to edit around any shot where you can see my butt,” the 30 Rock
star told Vanity Fair
. “I like to look goofy, but I also don't want to get canceled because of my big old butt.”
One thing that she won't ever tolerate is being adulterous. According to Fey, there's not a lot of gray area in being flirty with somebody.
“I don't enjoy any kind of danger or volatility. I don't have that kind of ‘I love the bad guys' thing. No, no thank you. I like nice people,” said Fey, whose been married for seven years to husband Jeff Richmond.
