6 reasons everyone loves Tina Fey

Tina Fey.

The Queen of all that is brilliant and magnificent. Writer, movie star, mother, wife, general winner of the human race, is starring in the new Muppets movie The Muppets: Most Wanted in cinemas April 10.

It would take far too long to detail all her fabulousness in one go, so I’ve narrowed it down to six. Six reasons why everyone loves Tina Fey.

Just as an FYI, you should know that this post is sponsored by Disney’s ‘Muppets Most Wanted’. But all opinions expressed by the author are 100 per cent authentic and written in their own words.

1. She played possibly the greatest female character of all time, Liz Lemon:

2. She is infinitely wise about beauty:

From her book Bossypants:

“Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes.”

“If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important rule of beauty, which is: who cares?”

“I think for women especially, you need to have a plan. I need to have some other ways to generate income, so I don’t have to stretch my face or lift the top of my head with surgery or something.”

3. She calls her kids sociopaths and it’s hilarious:

4. She said this once:

“Ah, babies! They’re more than just adorable little creatures on whom you can blame your farts.”

5. Her approach to her marriage is unsurprisingly brilliant:

“Ladies gotta say no to their husbands at the movies. They gotta say: ‘No, we are watching back-to-back cancer movies. And then this movie about a cat.'”

Tina and her husband Jeff

“Read! When your baby is finally down for the night, pick up a juicy book like Eat, Pray, Love or Pride and Prejudice or my personal favorite, Understanding Sleep Disorders: Narcolepsy and Apnea; A Clinical Study. Taking some time to read each night really taught me how to feign narcolepsy when my husband asked me what my “plan” was for taking down the Christmas tree.”

6. THIS:

What do you love most about Tina Fey?

Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theatres in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London.

But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais.

The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
