Funnywoman Tina Fey grew up believing she was a 'genius' - until she realised strangers were only fussing over her because of the scar on her face.

The "30 Rock" actress/writer, Tina Fey is famously coy about discussing the blemish on her left cheek, but in 2008 her husband Jeff Richmond revealed the injury is the result of a knife attack when she was five years old.

Tina Fey fears she will be "exploiting and glorifying" the incident if she discusses it - but now she's opened up about the effect the scar had on her as she grew up.

She tells The Sunday Times Magazine, "It wasn't until years later that I realised people weren't making a fuss over me because I was some incredible beauty or genius; they were making a fuss over me to compensate for my being slashed. I accepted all the attention at face value and proceeded through life as if I really were extraordinary."

You are extraordinary, sweetheart! Extraordinarily smart, pretty, and last but certainly not least ... FUNNY. Thank you for being just who you were and just who you are. The world is a much better place for it. No, I'm not mom or dad : )
