In the next issue of Vanity Fair, Tina Fey finally explains the origins of her famous facial scar. Actually she didn't do the explaining, she left it to her husband and let Tina fill in the blanks.
"It was in, like, the front yard of her house, and somebody who just came up, and she just thought somebody marked her with a pen."
Apparently it wasn't a pen, but rather, a knife. This was when she was five years old. Can you imagine someone just going to up to a five year old kid and slashing them with a knife? I sure as hell wouldn't want to talk about it either. Then to be the center of attention and have the question asked repeatedly and people speculate, just brings that memory back all the time.
You can tell that Tina's husband Jeff Richmond loves her with this quote about it.
"That scar was fascinating to me," Richmond says. "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."
For her part, Tina says she never really thought about it much or thought it was unattractive until she got on television. At that point she said she started thinking about which direction she should always face the camera.
