Tina Fey’s husband, Jeff Richmond, who composed music for SNL and now composes for 30 Rock finally told people how Tina Fey got that scar on her face. Newsweek says:
“In an interview in Vanity Fair, Jeff Richmond says a stranger slashed Fey’s face when she was 5 years old. He says the incident occurred in the front yard of her house. 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.” Fey says talking about the attack would seem like exploiting it. Says Fey: “It’s really almost like I’m able to forget about it, until I was on-camera, and it became a thing of `Oh, I guess we should use this side’ or whatever. Everybody’s got a better side.”
This story would have been dead and buried years ago if Tina would have told people, “I got cut and had stitches when I was a kid.” Instead she enveloped this thing in a cloud of mystery all these years by telling people it was a painful story and she doesn’t want to hurt her parents further by discussing it. If you’re like me you assumed her dad was the guy who killed Inigo Montoya’s father. Instead it was just some crazy dick with a knife. I think they should investigate this further because I’m pretty sure it was the same guy who sliced Tina Fey’s husband in half. Either that or he’s doing a Tim Conway “Dorf” impression.
