Tina Fey Scarred By Childhood Knife Attack

This makes us appreciate Tina Fey even more!

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Tina Fey's husband, Jeff Richmond, tells the mag the origins of Miz Fey's facial scar that runs down her left cheek.

Her face was slashed by a stranger when she as only 5-years old!

That must have been so traumatizing!

"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. That scar was fascinating to me. This is somebody who, no matter what it was, has gone through something. And I think it really informs the way she thinks about her life."

The Emmy winner says she doesn't like to talk about the incident because, "it's impossible to talk about it without somehow seemingly exploiting it and glorifying it."

She goes on to say that she never felt like an ugly duckling because of it, "It's really almost like I'm kind of able to forget about it, until I was on-camera, and it became a thing of 'Oh, I guess we should use this side' or whatever."

Nothing can stop the greatness that is Tina!

    She looks better with her glasses on!

    Oh yea, and that sounds like a made up story!
    And who cares about her scar anyways i can barely even tell it's there most of the time…



  14. 14

    just wondering but how do you consider this adding to her 'greatness'? it's not like she saved someones life in a heroic feat of bravery.. some sick person just slashed her as a kid.

    What is so damn great about her? Of all the chicks that went through SNL in the late 90s (Cheri Oteri, Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer) she was probably the least talented and funny of the pack. Her writing style and sense of humor took over the show and as a result now its tired and awful.

    Her pal Amy Poehler is fucking overrated too.

    SNL should do a skit with Sarah Palin playing Tina Fey getting slashed….that would be so funny!!

    i look up to tina fey, she's awesome. amy poehler's also hilarious.

    It's pretty sad that you appreciate someone more because they have a scar. Seriously, Perez, it's getting ridiculous. You'll say anything positive for anyone that is a Democrat and will ridicule anyone that is a Republican. It'll always be about politics in your blog even if you don't come right out and say it.

    love Tina Fey!!



  27. 27

    I thought she was a lesbian…who knew she had a husband? i'll bet she had a plastic surgeon at UCLA remove her husband balls…you know this one must be an interolerable be-atch…



  28. 28

    Re: Plinkie9 – uh your tin foil hat is showing dear. Its not a conspiracy Tina is fabulous that is why Perez roots for her. Find us an entertaining/hot/popular Republican and I am sure he sing their praises as well! Oh wait there aren't any …….



  29. 29

    once again the head homo proves ther is no toliet seat he won,t lick;;merry christmas



  30. 30

    If it makes her feel any better…I never even noticed it…and now that I'm looking for it, I still can't really see it.



  31. 31

    With all the bullshit hype in Hollywood -Tina really is the exception. It just seems like there's nothing she is not great at.



  32. 32

    I read an interview with her a while back and Tina said the reason she won't talk about her scar is because it is still so upsetting for her parents. Wow. Now I can understand why. Imagine your little girl innocently playing and some crazy steps up and slashes her face. Jesus.



  33. 33

    She was marked for greatness!



  34. 34

    Re: mamajud – I know what you mean!



  35. 35

    Perez probably like Tina because shes not showing her vagina or going out and getting drunk at the clubs and being in all the tabloids. Plus she's a great comedienne, I love her writing. She's so not the typical hollywood star, she's pretty, intelligent and funny. I'm sure that's why Perez likes her, not because she's a democrat morons.



  36. 36

    That is sick to do that to a child. But I can't even see it.

    I don't get people's love of Tina Fey. I think she's ugly and boring.

    I think Tina is great -
    -
    I noticed the scar but her personality always overshadowed it -
    -
    I wish Lohan could have learned more from her -

    Why is this on every news station? She is beautiful and this really is not news to be spread everywhere.



  40. 40

    I never even noticed



  41. 41

    What kind of sick fuck slashes a child playing in their yard? WTF? … I hope the bastard went to jail.



  42. 42

    Mean old Tina. I'm guessing she was an arrogant, mean, petty person and lots of people have far worse happen to them. IF the story is true. She is NOT a nice person- the original template for her own movie. Hope she teaches her daughter to be a nicer woman than she is.



  43. 43

    lol seriously?



  44. 44

    amazing woman….nuff' said!!!



  45. 45

    Tina Fey RULES - FEY 2012!!!!!
