Mystery of Tina Fey's Scar Solved

Apparently, sexy nerd comedian Tina Fey has a scar on her face that she keeps covered up. How'd she get what the NY Post classily calls the "Fey-mous" mark? Somebody slashed her face. When she was five. For no reason. That's what her husband told Maureen Dowd for Vanity Fair, which profiles Fey and features her on the cover as a scantily clad Uncle Sam. Tina herself won't discuss the matter because she doesn't want to "exploit" it.

Liz Lemon favors her right side. That's because a faint scar runs across Tina Fey's left cheek, the result of a violent cutting attack by a stranger when Fey was five. Her husband says, "It was in, like, the front yard of her house, and somebody who just came up, and she just thought somebody marked her with a pen." You can hardly see the scar in person. But I agree with Richmond that it makes Fey more lovely, like a hint of Marlene Dietrich noir glamour in a Preston Sturges heroine.

Well, damn. Now we just love her more.
