Tina Fey loves to open and receive presents on Christmas and she doesn’t care what you think.
Tina Fey is not ashamed about wanting some loot for Christmas. The former “Saturday Night Live” star told Confidenti@l at the premiere of her new movie “Sisters,” that her favorite holiday tradition is opening gifts.
“I don’t care what anyone says I like to give and receive presents,” she told us at the Ziegfeld Theater. “My wish list is like gym clothes and new potholders. I’ve officially turned into my mom like, ‘I don’t want anything just give me some pot holders.’”
Also at the premiere was her “Sisters” co-star, Amy Poehler, and she revealed the secret to keeping their friendship tight.
“Every five years we go to a state park and we spend a week there naked. If we survive, we’re still friends,” she joked, adding that Poehler truly has become a sister to her.
Amy Poehler says Tina Fey has becomer a sister to her.
“I don’t have a sister in real life. I have a brother, so my guess is yes, we are pretty sisterly, because we for sure have each other’s back,” she said. “We have a shorthand, like if we haven’t seen each other in a long time we’ll come up to each other and start talking really fast, like half sentences.”
SCHWIMMER’S SQUEAKY ‘FRIENDS’
East Village residents weren’t crazy to see “Friends” star David Schwimmer tear down an historic 1852 townhouse on E. Sixth St. and replace it with his own personal mansion last year. But one of his neighbors says that area mice have already accepted Schwimmer as one of their own.
“I saw two of the biggest mice I’ve ever seen on a glue trap right outside his front door,” says one longtime local. “Big, fat suckers. Two of them.” Sounds like a job for Joey Tribbiani.
