Maureen Dowd Interviews Tina Fey, Attacks Feminism
I wonder how the scar affected Fey in high school. "She wasn't Rocky Dennis developing a sense of humor because of her looks, like in Mask," says Damian Holbrook, laughing. Liz Lemon's blustery Republican boss, Jack Donaghy, played with comic genius by Alec Baldwin, tells Lemon, "I don't know what happened in your life that caused you to develop a sense of humor as a coping mechanism. Maybe it was some sort of brace or corrective boot you wore during childhood, but in any case I'm glad you're on my team."
Ooooh burn. Except not. I wonder if Dowd realizes that other writers can in fact write without projecting all their issues out into the world.
