It’s pretty well known that Tina Fey never talks about the little scar on her left cheek. Luckily, she also has a husband who’s just happy when someone wants to talk to him. He recently revealed his wife’s scar origin in an interview with Vanity Fair:
Jeff Richmond says a stranger slashed Fey’s face when she was 5 years old.
The future TV star was playing in the front yard of her Upper Darby, Penn., home when a stranger approached the young Fey and violently cut her cheek.
Says Richmond: “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.” [AP]
Yeah, I can totally understand that. It’s like when I was five and I pissed my pants on a field trip to the zoo, and to this day I still cry like a baby whenever I see zebra print. That was also the year I stopped breastfeeding. I don’t really know where I was going with this, but if I had to choose someone on 30 Rock to get their face slashed, it’d definitely be Judah Friedlander. He could wear a hat that says “OUCH MY FACE!”
