Though she's received widespread acclaim for playing Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey is typically self-effacing about the gig. First, she claimed that her uncannily accurate impression was the easiest voice to do since Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade, and now, while talking to TV Guide about the physical adjustments she makes to play Palin, she belittled her own looks in comparison to the candidate's:
"We glue my ears down," Fey says in the new issue of TV Guide. "That's one of the tricks." ..."I'll tell you, that lady is five times better-looking than I am," she admits. "She's 44? She's got none of that droopy s—t. She's keeping it tight!"
Sure, when Fey said at the Emmys, "I want to thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate to my looks," we chuckled, even though she looked drop dead gorgeous. But we're starting to get concerned about the 30 Rock star — could it be that when she looks in the mirror, she still sees this? Tina, face it: you may not be a VPILF, but you're definitely worthy of "The Hair." Now get your mindgrapes in order and own it!
