There were a lot of grumblings around the internet about the ‘fakeness’ of the Vogue March 2010 issue with Tina on the front cover and inside not being “Tina Fey“. Well might we find this photoshoot featuring the hilarious Tina Fey for Esquire Magazine’s April 2010 issue a little more in-sync than her last photoshoot she did with Vogue Magazine? Â Her photoshoot with James White for Esquire Magazine shows the ‘real’ Tina Fey with a night out on the town! (Photographed at Asia de Cuba restaurant and Morgans Hotel, New York City).
Tina on the Real Tina:
Her initial reaction to the photo shoot: “I got an e-mail [from Esquire] with a list of the potential setups, and my e-mail back was like, ‘Well, I need to decline being handcuffed to a bed. I won’t straddle anyone. I won’t make out with a cop. My kid’s going to find this someday. I’m not going to make out with a cop that I’m handcuffed to. I got to get my kid into kindergarten.'”
On her time in the limelight: “I think my level of fame will drop back down. I think it’ll recede. In fact, I know it will. That’s life on planet earth. And I’m okay with that. Besides getting tables at restaurants and special treatment at the airport, what else is there?”
No such thing as ‘the thinking man’: “What I’ve come to realize is that when people say, ‘The thinking man’s whatever’ — there’s no such thing. The thinking man also wants to f*** Megan Fox.”
On Twitter: “Twitter seems like a busman’s holiday: just more writing. I have no plans to do it. I’ll just stick with my 24/7 webcam. I’m old-fashioned that way.”
Spilling the ’30 Rock’ beans — sort of: “Plots we would not do? Let me put the Internet at ease: Liz and Jack will never be together. Not even if we go fifteen seasons. Okay, if we get to season fifteen, they’ll do it.”
Playing Sarah Palin: “What goes into a Sarah Palin impression? For me, it was a wig. And gluing down my ears. When I wear that half-up hairdo, my ears stick out. Also overdrawing my lips to make it look like I have bigger lips. Then there’s the Minnesooota, ‘Fargo’ kind of accent. Ya know? And the o‘s, and the that, and all that. And smiling when you talk. I feel that if I do it again, people will be like, ‘Oh, wait a minute. That’s terrible! You never really could do it, could you?'”
Cussin’: “My parents are going to be like, ‘Why did you curse that much in that Esquire article?'”
Now that was fun!Â I can feel everyone all breathing a sigh of relief now that we’ve had the “REAL” Tina Fey returned to us!
