Tina Fey appears on the cover of Vanity Fair in January 2009. The "SNL" and "30 Rock" star, who went from Weekend Update anchor to stardom as the perfect Sarah Palin imitator, answers questions ranging from her 7-year marriage to Jeff Richmond to her least favorite body part.
On her feet, Tina Fey said, "I don't like my feet. I'm not crazy about anybody's feet. But I have flat feet." Her 30 Rock counterpart, Liz Lemon, also hates her feet and sleeps in her socks. Also revealed is Fey's scar on her left cheek, a remnant from a knife attack by a stranger when she was five.
On strippers, Fey is adamantly opposed: "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."
On her early days in Chicago, Fey says, "I'm five four and a half, and I think I was maxing out at just short of 150 pounds, which isn't so big. But when you move to New York from Chicago, you feel really big. Because everyone is pulled together, small, and Asian. Everyone's Asian."
