Tina Fey has two major things to celebrate—her second pregnancy and the 100th episode of 30 Rock tonight.
Liz Lemon Tina talked to GQ magazine about her pregnancy, breast pumps, and how ugly Liz Lemon is. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Tina Fey on breast pumps:
“Yeah, the thing's upsetting. I would try to pump milk while watching Entourage on demand. And that was the worst possible way to do it. Like, I had the pump on, and I'd hear Turtle on TV: Yo, E, you ever fuck a girl when she has her period? I just sat there thinking: Oooh, this is not how this is meant to be.”
...on whether or not she thinks Liz Lemon is ugly:
“It's never that she's ugly—I mean, she is sometimes slovenly. But for me, it's always been kind of the opposite of what people have said about her. It's about how other men see her, and has nothing to do with how she really is. When Jack is like, "Ugh, you're a mess," it's because of what his brain wants a woman to be. It has nothing to do with the physical symmetry of her size or anything. So no, she's not ugly. She's kind of sloppy. But all the clothes that Liz Lemon wears are much nicer than what I would wear on a writing-hiatus week.”
...on lady blogs exploding after the episode with the Liz-hires-a-feminist-comic thing, (in reference to Olivia Munn being hired by the Daily Show):
“I was actually really pleased that Jezebel got that it was about the whole Olivia thing, because the treatment of Olivia was weird on that site. She just kept getting reamed! And it was this weird mix. They would go after her, and then the next thing would be like, "Defending the Rights of Sex Workers." And I was just like, "Well, why can't we just say Olivia's a sex worker? Leave her alone!"
