Tina Fey On Holidays And Body Hair

Tina Fey is not one to shy away from disclosing her true feelings on an issue, whether that would be comedy, life or body hair.

The latter being the most important, of course.

To Tina Fey, body hair should be left alone until it becomes an absolute necessity to address.

Tina Fey recently opened up about the issue, saying, “Remove your body hair only when necessary.”

She added, “Body hair is a constant annoyance. Mostly I just let it be. Until I have to go into a professional situation, and then I have to shave from head to toe.”

That's also called summer, right?

Tina Fey also talked about coping with average looks as a teenager.

She said, “For me it was about hitting age 13 and realizing, ‘OK, I’m not going to glide by on looks. I’m a normal-looking person, but that’s not going to be where my bread is buttered.'”

She added, “The desire to be funny — because you are never actually quite sure if you really are funny — is a coping mechanism, another way of ingratiating yourself.”

The holiday season can also be a struggle for Tina Fey, who has two young girls at home. It seems her Christmas decorating history was tinged with stress from her father's micromanagement of the tree.

But, Tina Fey is working on it. Aren't we all trying to be less stressed this season? And aren't most of us failing terribly?

It's okay, Tina Fey.

She said, "I remember looking forward to it so much, and then realizing it was so much stress. My dad had very rigid rules on how Christmas worked. The tree did not go up until Christmas Eve and it had to be decorated with lights first, then balls, then figurines, then tinsel."

She then admitted, "But, I have caught myself doing that with my children, you can’t let it go: 'You can’t put the Mickey Mouse on the tree, we haven’t done the red balls yet. Son of a b**ch.'"

Haha! Oh the struggles joys of having kids at Christmas!

Can you relate to Tina Fey's very real issues?
