Tina Fey Covers 'Esquire' April 2010

Tina Fey stays classic in black Derek Lam on the April 2010 cover of Esquire. Here are some quotes from the 39-year-old funnywoman:

On the cover shoot: “The idea of the photo shoot is something like my wild night out. The irony being that I don’t do that. I got an e-mail [from Esquire] with a list of the potential setups, and my e-mail back was like, Well, I need to decline being handcuffed to a bed. I won’t straddle anyone. I won’t make out with a cop. There are certain things, I totally get them as a premise. And they’re all good fun, and if I were a young single model, they would be appropriate, but, you know, I’m a mom. And my kid’s going to find this someday. I don’t want to be handcuffed to a bed in Esquire. What are you nuts? I’m not going to make out with a cop that I’m handcuffed to. I got to get my kid into kindergarten. I guess that’s more of a Montessori way of learning, when they handcuff you to things.”

On an epiphany: “What I’ve come to realize is that when people say, ‘The thinking man’s whatever’ – there’s no such thing. The thinking man also wants to f–k Megan Fox.

On cussing: “My parents are going to be like, Why did you curse that much in that Esquire article?”

FYI: Tina is also wearing rings by Gara Danielle and a bracelet by Fenton Fallon.

    Sarah Palin is 10x’s hotter than this wannabee

  • c

    And THIS is someone people look up to??

  • Atrium

    Actually I Like the Cover

  • loyal

    Am shocked that Tina allowed this photoshopped fake pix to make the cover. Thought she was supposed to be everywoman. Or the thinking woman. Guess there is no such thing, either.

  • Rita

    #1, she’s not a Sarah Palin wannabe, she’s a comedienne; #4, even an ‘everywoman’ wants to look good, I certainly would on a nationally-circulated magazine. What’s wrong with that?

  • GoodGirl

    OMGosh!…She look so….WOW!

    LOVE her hair!

  • Ilia

    I love this chick! She talented, beautiful and funny!

  • Elizabeth

    She is my hero.

  • Ronda

    She looks sexy, beautiful!

  • Rhonda

    All I see when I look at her is a Sarah Palin wanabee!

  • happy girl

    i know i may be the only one, but i never really liked her. especially when she did weekend update. i did not think she was funny. her sarah palin is funny but that’s it for me. i also think she comes off as someone who thinks she is really really funny. i like comedians who come off unassuming like steve martin and others. she is a bit too cocky for my taste. ok, her fans don’t attack me! lol!

  • Is she

    taking a few swipes at Bounty Hunter/W mag cover?

  • Andrea

    I think Tina is amazing and I love all of these photos!!! She’s super gorgeous, hilarious, and very smart!!! I like that she went out of her comfort zone to show a “Crazy Tina”.

  • funderpants

    Tina looks great, as usual. Looks like a fun shoot, it’s nice to see different looks on someone you see often. The cover looks like if Tina and Ashley Greene from Twilight had a baby, though. Maybe a bit much on the ‘shopping?

  • oye vey

    Not Photoshoped … just some real make-up for a change! She looks damn sexy! Good for her.

  • Plain Truff

    The cover is airbrushed though.

  • Lady GuyGuy

    You can make anyone look decent (or bad) with photoshop & or a ton of makeup.

  • lexy

    She looks great! Nothing wrong with her getting glammed up for an Esquire cover. This isn’t a Dove ad! Nice to see talented celebs on JJ!

  • Amber-louise

    I really like that dress she’s wearing on the cover. Also, she looks nice.

  • Stacey

    I hate to break it to you internerds, but her body is definitely not Photoshopped.
    I doubt any of you people watch her show or have seen her in anything else, but she has a great body, contrary to what some of you may think.
    I also love when people are like “LULZ, THAT’S PHOTOSHOPPED!”, when the majority of the people who make this accusation have zero experience with Photoshop.
    Lighting & makeup > Photoshop
    Women can be funny, smart, and gorgeous. It’s possible, accept it.

  • anna

    She’s a cocky fart-face wannabe!!! I can’t until this planet gets over her!!! So she can go back to being a non-funny idiot lost in the crowd.

  • All Women Stalker

    I am under the impression that everybody loves her. Well, guess I’m wrong. I think she’s lovely, though.

  • Allison


    Wow, obviously someone can’t read.

  • Jenna


    Internerds? Really?

  • mickey

    I LOVE Tina Fey. She is so funny and uber-awesome.

  • David

    @anna: Not really a wannabe since she’s a highly respected actress and writer.

  • Marieme

    God, Tina…Enuff already. Geez! You don’t have to say yes and be on every cover of every mag. You can say “No.” Now you’re venturing into Fug’s territory. Better you concentrate more on fixing 30 Rock than worrying about people needing to see more and more of you. I got sick of you doing this last year and still it continues. Ever hear of over-exposure?

  • Brit

    She’s actaully attractive, and veryyy talented at that!

  • Stacey


    I went there.

  • SomeoneWhoKnowsFunny

    @happy girl: Not funny? Were you half passed out when you watched her do SNL Weekend Update? Do you watch 30 Rock, or are you more of an American Idol viewer?

  • black uggs

    I think Tina is amazing and I love all of these photos!!! She’s super gorgeous, hilarious, and very smart!!!

  • فنادق مكة

    It is very good to think about her kids this way and i like this way of thinking, very cool indeed
