Why Tina Fey Has A Scar

December 1st, 2008 // 6 Comments

Tina Fey is the thinking man’s pin-up girl. Droll, deadpan, brilliiantly self-deprecating and growing into her sex appeal as her show 30 Rock won multiple Emmys this year and her spot-on impersonations of losing vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin made Saturday Night Live relevant again. But did you ever notice she has a scar?

It’s true, Fey has a scar running along her left cheek. If you watch 30 Rock, you’ll notice Liz Lemon is always favoring her right side. When Tina was five, a stranger attacked the toddler Fey in the front yard of her home and slashed her face. What?!?! Her husband Jeff Richmond spoke about it to Vanity Fair for their recent profile of her.

“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,” he told writer Maureen O’Dowd.

Fey acknowledges that she sought therapy during 9/11 when someone sent anthrax to Tom Brokaw‘s office at the real 30 Rock and she linked that crime with her attack as a child.

“It’s the attack out of nowhere,” Fey says. “Something comes out of nowhere, it’s horrifying.”

Fey doesn’t really talk about it because she says that would be “seemingly exploiting it and glorifying it,” but don’t you kind of love her more now? Here she is looking gorgeous at the 2008 Museum Gala at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

    I thought Tina Fey was a damaged soul. now I know why she is shuch a hater. To bad the attacker did not finish job!

    And Sarah Palin may be pretty(ier), but I’d rather be pretty and smart like Tina.

    hey “Lorraine Kruse”

    Just an FYI –

    When you start to realize there is something wrong with you, you can just go back to your outpatient clinic and ask them to up your meds.
