Tina Fey: Big on Laughs, Not on Botox

by at . Comments

"You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don't think Botox is for me," Tina Fey says in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I think it is bad."

Spoken as only a career comedienne can.

Fey also adds that certain celebrities who have "too much" Botox "look like their faces are full of candles - a shiny, shiny face. Festive. A holiday candle."

Still, she has concerns about her looks. Sometimes, on the set of 30 Rock, the entertainer of the year tells cameramen to "frame me from the waist up."

"If there is a shot that's bad, I can take it out," she adds.

"That is why L.A. is so bad, because they take your picture from any side. That is why people in L.A. maintain 360-degree fitness. I don't have the time."

Tina Fey looks terrific, and is entertaining as always.

A typical day for Fey, who has a daughter, Alice, 4, with her husband, composer Jeff Richmond: "Work, come home, play, kid bounce, work again, go to bed."

Lately, though, Fey says she has been making time for "shopping." Says the Saturday Night Live alum, "I am no longer the least stylish woman in the room."

As for her trademark glasses, recognizable from 30 Rock and in many SNL Tina Fey videos, "I don't wear them very much in real life because I need them to see only far away. And I don't wear them when I am dressed up, because I look like Tootsie."

Tina and many hilarious 30 Rock quotes return October 15.
