In an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Tina Fey reveals a stranger cut her face when she was 5 years old, leaving a scar on her left cheek.
Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Tina Fey opens up to the January 2009 issue of Vanity Fair magazine about the story behind the scar on the left side of her face. Besides, she also talks about her loves for cupcakes, strippers role and nice people.
Publicly addressing the scar on her left cheek for the very first time, Fey admits "It's impossible to talk about it without somehow seemingly exploiting it and glorifying it." She goes on telling the publication that she got the scar when she was still 5 years old when a stranger walked into the front yard of her Upper Darby, Penn., home and cut her face, leaving a scar on her left cheek. "She just thought somebody marked her with a pen," her husband Jeff Richmond adds.
As a result of the incident, Fey thus doesn'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," she reveals. And that is one reason why she loves her husband Jeff very much.
Talking about her love for cupcakes, Fey jokingly tells Vanity Fair's Maureen Dowd, that it's okay to indulge before the Vanity Fair photo shoot with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz because "Annie's going to photograph my soul, right?" Furthermore also revealing her love for strippers role, the actress explains, "I love to play strippers and to imitate them. I love using that idea for comedy, but the idea of actually going there? I feel like we all need to be better than that. That industry needs to die, by all of us being a little bit better than that."
In addition to the interview, Tina Fey also takes over the cover of Vanity Fair's January 2009 issue, which will go on sale on Wednesday, December 3 in New York/L.A. and December 9 nationwide.
