Tina Fey shows her love for fellow showbiz mom Gwyneth Paltrow
"Anytime you talk about being a working mother and you complain about it in any way, people eat your face," Fey told InStyle magazine.
"I remember reading some interview where Gwyneth Paltrow said something like, 'I missed my kids on the set one day and I was crying.' And I thought, 'Yeah, I've totally done that.'"
Not everyone is so empathetic.
"On the website where I read it there were these furious comments. 'But you're a movie star!' Yes, it's much worse for a mom serving in Afghanistan. Of course," Fey said. "But there's just no forgiveness."
Although we can't expect a lifestyle blog from Fey anytime soon -- we'd love to see her offer dessert recipes a la "Liz Lemon Tartlet," or a liver cleanse executed with Cheesy Blasters -- she's got a memoir coming up.
"Anyone who will barge into the room while you are on the commode is the boss of you," Fey said. "And when you explain to them that you're on the commode and that they should leave but they don't? That's a high-level boss."
