[UPDATE: FULL INTERVIEW NOW POSTED]
Could her Tracy Morgan impersonation be more spot on? Also, you can tell her dress is shorter than she is used to wearing because she keeps adjusting it and sitting in, what I like to call, the modesty arm pose. Hey, a lady doesn’t flash her lady business.
Other highlights from last night’s appearance:
On her 4½-year-old daughter Alice’s concern for her well being:
She just took my face in her hands and said, “When are you going to die?” They have very practical concerns. They’ll miss you, but they’re like, “Who is in charge of the chicken nuggets when you die?”
On playing married to Steve Carell in “Date Night”:
One of the things I liked about the movie is we look like a married couple. A lot of times it’s like Burt Lancaster and Megan Fox.
On improvising on the set:
We did this whole sequence around a stripper pole... We did pretty well. There were a couple times where Steve picked me up by the legs and just rammed my crotch bone into the pole. I was like, Steve, Steve, Steve, Steve. You have a wife; you know what the equipment is that we’re working with here.
Letterman clearly has a crush on her, too. He called her one of “only like half a dozen people who can make really funny, entertaining films” today. Back off, Dave. She’s my Fake Wife. You have a real wife, and staffers.
So yesterday, when emailing back and forth with friends, the topic of – um, how shall we say – favorite body parts came up. (We’re really not that skeezy, it was in the context of my “Bitch Slap” review.) Anyway, I determined after some entirely pleasurable self-reflection that I am not a Boob Gal or a Butt Gal or a Gams Gal. Sure, there are a few areas of the body I like to linger on (wouldn’t you like to know), but all in all what I really like is a big, bodacious brain. Just a really nice perky set of lobes does it for me. Dead sexy. And, ultimately, that’s what makes me love Tina so much. She is so smart and so quick and so witty. She is droll and charming and have I mentioned smart? What can I say, a finely formed cerebral cortex gets me hot.
Also, it helps that it you put your right hand up over Steve Carell on this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover, it looks like Tina is covered in lipstick kisses from a lady. I have had dreams like that. Very, very good dreams. They looked a little something like this.
p.s. Did you catch Joan Jett last night on Letterman, too? Is it just me, or does she not age? Like at all. Like pact-with-the-devil at all.
