Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take the cover of Glamour magazine’s January 2016 issue in promotion of their new movie Sisters!
Here’s what the funny ladies had to share:
On sex tips: AP: When Merrill Markoe interviewed you both for Glamour in 2005, she asked, “Any sex tips?” And [you] said, “Make sure you don’t laugh,” and [I] said, “Try not to barf.” Would you stand by or amend those tips?
TF: I would say go ahead and laugh.
AP: I think I’d say go ahead and barf.
Tina, on playing a woman-child in Sisters: “Woman-child, I think, is in reference to the fact that there are many male comedians who play man-childs—man-childs is a word. I do think it’s fun to be able to play a character that’s in no way aspirational and in no way a role model, and the more female characters there are on-screen, there’s less pressure on every character to represent everyone. I love playing people who are flawed.”
Amy, on maintaining friendships: “It’s like a good marriage. My mom always says it’s very important to have people in your life who knew you when. The older you get, the more you treasure that idea of someone knowing your family and where you came from, and being around during these times and these times. Tina and I, we don’t have any sisters. So we’ve rented them.”
