Tina Fey is the thinking woman’s pinup girl, but the “30 Rock” star wasn’t always so glamorous. In a recent appearance on David Letterman, Fey admitted that she was a virgin until the age of 24 – not because she was religious or saving herself, but because she was “homely.”
Tina Fey may be one of the most popular girls around these days, but as she reminisced to David Letterman Wednesday, she was a virgin until she met her husband when she was 24.
As Dave read a list of people who stayed virgins from a tabloid, like Brooke Shields (22) and Adriana Lima (27), Fey’s name came up as having been 24.
“[I] Couldn’t give it away,” Fey sighed. “That’s just good, Christian values, or, being homely.”
She also talked about wearing fake hair for her Bazaar cover shoot.
Tina’s come a long way in the last few years. The stories floating around from Tina’s old SNL castmates and a 2008 Vanity Fair article reinforce Tina’s “homely” claims: she used to come to her job there as head writer wearing sweat pants, a ski hat and no makeup (you can see an older photo of Tina here). Once she started appearing in front of the camera, however, everything changed. Now she’s being photographed by Annie Leibovitz and wearing couture! But luckily for Tina, her husband liked her before the makeover.
Along with the critical success of “30 Rock,” Tina is getting her film career off the ground too: she’s currently shooting “Date Night” with Steve Carrell of “The Office.” The film is about a married couple looking to spice up their relationship with a trip to New York City – and of course, things don’t go quite as planned. The film is set for release next year and also stars Kristen Wiig, James Franco, Mark Ruffalo and Mila Kunis.
