Tina Fey Poses As Audrey Hepburn, Destroys The Fantasy That She Might Be In Your League

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | September 28, 2012 | Comments ()

The Hobbit promotion machine released a dwarf-centric poster this week. And maybe it's because we were just talking Labyrinth yesterday, but all I could think of was this. Oh! And also. The casting of the lovely Aidan Turner continues to baffle me. He looks like he wandered into this photo straight from the CW studios.

So for any of you who have been using the new Apple iOS on your phones know by now that the highly functioning Google maps have been replaced by maps that will send you THE WRONG WAY DOWN A ONE WAY STREET IN SAN FRANCISCO. Not that I nearly died or anything. Anyway, the new Apple CEO is, like, SUPER sorry about that near death experience I had. (Uproxx)

I think most of us knew that Carrie Fischer had a drug problem when she was filming Star Wars, but I've watched the films a thousand times and never before noticed her intergalactic coke nail. Well spotted, gentle viewer. (io9)

Q: What does it look like when you fire a gun under water? A: A whole lot cooler than any film sequence ever had led me to believe. (Vuurwapen)

Our boy Seth is currently stumbling around Germany celebrating Oktoberfest, sampling all the Breweries of Europe. But, more likely, he'll be joining the ranks of the "Bierleichen." (Neatorama)

Alanis Morissette stepped up in defense of Green Day's Billie Joe this week...and she did it with song. It's like a delicious 90s ambrosia, y'all. (EW)

I watched the stupid premiere of stupid "Elementary" this morning. This poster pretty much sums up my feelings.

Now that Looper and Seven Psychopaths are here/right around the corner, it's time for me to start anxiously anticipating another project by Guys Who Can Do No Wrong. Those guys? Frost/Wright/Pegg, of course. And given who they've cast in their latest project (hint, see above image), The World's End can't get here soon enough. (/Film)

Dear internet, why did it take you so long to mash up "The Wire" and "Game of Thrones"? Were you sleeping, internet? (Scraped Knee)

I don't know how many of you were "Cheers" fans, but if you're looking for a TL;Gonna Read To Make The Work Day Go Faster article, check out this oral history of the sitcom from its cast and crew. (GQ)

I've heard some griping of late about the way some parents exploit their kids and their cuteness for online attention. At least this dad got consent first. (BioTV)

Tina Fey poured herself into a LBD for the cover of next week's "Entertainment Weekly." Hepburn fans, do you think that middle picture on the right is supposed to be an Eliza Doolittle thing? The rest of you, homina, homina, homina. Right? (Homorazzi)

I posted this amazing video made by the WASPiest woman in history on my facebook page last night and was comforted to know your reactions were the same as mine. As in "DEAR GOD WHAT IS THAT THING?"

And, to put Tina Fey back in the "attainable" column for you, here she is rapping on the set of Mean Girls with Amy Poehler and Lindsay Lohan. Awww, look, she can't even beatbox. You're totally in there.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • no one

    I like Tina Fey. I think she is funny. But she looks more like Audie Murphy in drag than Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn is 2nd most beautiful woman that ever lived and Fey doesn't even come close in that photo.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    What kind of product do you think dwarves use in their hair?

    Also, the problem with hot dwarf is not so much the lack of a beard (though the stubble is weird) - it's that he's not rocking the widow's peak blowback like all the other dwarves, and his nose has not been en-bulboused.

  • Really? People are complaining because JoRo likes to share pretty things (people) to look at?!? What do you people want?!?

    I wish that everyone who complained had to do their own link dumps for several weeks and deal with the commenters. It's not as easy as you think.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'd still remove my stays for Armitage even in that costume. He's got a BEARD in that photo. I'm not made of stone.

  • BWeaves

    Agreed!

    I think they threw Mitchell in there as the "hot" dwarf, and Thorin Oakenshield is out-hotting him by miles.

  • Jezzer

    It's not beyond the realm of possibility that people could treat "Sherlock" and "Elementary" as two different shows and enjoy them both, is it?

    Especially since Jonny Lee Miller is way better-looking than that Cumberwoozel thing.

  • Sacrilege! Eh, I think both are handsome, but Mr. Miller's looking a little rougher the old he gets.

    I did enjoy Mr. Miller's take on the character, and it was lovely to hear his natural accent for once. But I don't think I'll keep up with the show.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    The thing (okay...one of the many things) that upsets me about "Elementary" is how much I enjoy both Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. They are, presumably, being wasted here. I would know for sure if I had actually watched the show. Which I will not. Because it is dead to me. Yup. That's how I roll.

  • Sirilicious

    I just don't understand how there's oodles of people having a strangely intense opinion about Elementary, before even seeing it, just because it isn't The Cumberbatch.

    If you've seen it and feels it sucks, i guess that is ok. But I'll just wait till i've seen it for myself and/or till i read some reviews by people not comparing it to Sherlock.

  • googergieger

    I don't know. I didn't see that Charlie And The Chocolate Factory movie, and I'm pretty sure that sucked.

  • Sirilicious

    Ok, but are your feelings about it strangely intense?

  • googergieger

    I mean, it doesn't keep me up at night if that is what you are asking. However if someone were to ask me, "Hey did you see that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie?".

    I'd probably tell them, "No, that really looked like it sucked".

    Then I'd whip it out and slap them with it. Though to be fair that is literally my answer for everything.

  • Sirilicious

    I'm sure that was quite threatening in the days of VHS tapes, but you waving about a digital video disc does not strike fear in my heart.

    I think i sort of get it though. If back in the day someone had decided to make a series called "Mindscape" with John Crighton and Eric Sun in the lead, i'd be pissed off without ever having seen a scene. Still think this is different, because so many have redone Holmes & Watson, it's hardly anyones property.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The "it" is not a video tape. Or a dvd.

  • Sirilicious

    Please stop unblissing my ignorance.

  • Blake

    "I watched the stupid premiere of stupid “Elementary” this morning. This poster pretty much sums up my feelings. "

    I watched the premiere and thought is was okay. Was is it as clever as "A Study In Pink"? No. Was it a good introduction to the characters? Not really, but I am willing to give it a few more episodes before writing it off (if only for Liu).

  • DarthCorleone

    My wife looks like Tina Fey, and I had a sex dream about Audrey Hepburn once. This is all very confusing to me.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Well, now you know who to suggest your wife dresses up like for Halloween this year.

  • foolsage

    Sarah Palin?

  • Trey Shacksit

    Ooh, Audrey Hepburn, how original!

  • DarthCorleone

    It's been a long while since I read The Hobbit, and the only version I had on my bookshelf was the one with the illustrations from the cartoon. Remind me: was one of the dwarves beardless? Is this going to be a running gag in Jackson's version that he's trying to grow a respectable beard but can't?

    That Cheers retrospective is fantastic.

  • foolsage

    Fili and Kili are the youngest of the company by a large margin, which is why they have very short beards. Both are technically minors in dwarf society, after all. Kili is the youngest at age 77(ish) and has virtually no beard yet in the movie, as we can see.

    I think the lack of a beard is due to fanservice, cause Aidan is a good-looking guy, combined with some humor; yes, the other dwarves will tease him about it. And hey, I can understand why they'll do so. Those beards are magnificent.

  • Obsidiandog

    Tina Fey looks more like Cruella DeVille. Ugh. And Sherlock is totally overrated. What the hell is a 'cumberbatch'?

  • no one

    Cumberebatch's version of Sherlock is awesome. The show has some serious problems but none of them are with the casting.

  • firedmyass

    No one likes you. No one.

  • Obsidiandog

    Awww. Written by a girl who really cares what everybody thinks. Judging by your moniker somebody really really didn't like you.

  • bbmcrae

    So, you're here to make friends, then, and not just troll around?

  • Jezzer

    Or just charm everyone with its winning personality.

  • TheAggroCraig

    You posted the double header pic to give me a double boner, didn't you? It's totally working.

  • Oh. My. God! Kill it! KillitKillitKillitKillit!!!!!!!!!

  • lowercase_ryan

    I tried to get my parents to watch Sherlock. They were warm to the first episode but after the second they were just inexplicably done with it. Well now my shame is complete. When I went to pick up my dog (free dogsitting yes please) last night from them, they were watching this with rapt attention.

    Mom: It's like that show you like, but with Lucy Liu.
    Me: *shame*

  • Fabius_Maximus

    The header picture confuses me. Are we supposed to spot the differences?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    That's "Schnapsleiche", thank you very much. ("Schnaps" being hard liquor.) Although them being Bavarians, beer might be enough to get them into that state...

  • John G.

    Joanna's official title at Pajiba is director of "look! a hot girl, look! a hot guy."

  • no one

    Or in this case, "Look! a .... is that guy in a dress? Nice cat though."

  • stump

    I think she's pathetic. It's like she got attention for being pretty and thinks thats the only thing anyone has to offer.

  • Jezzer

    Wow, Martha Dumptruck got BITTER when she grew up.

  • Quatermain

    That's a tetch harsh, don't you think? I'm generally not one to not be an asshole, but like a cheesy vampire in a bad sci-fi vigilante movie, I tend to pick from among those I feel deserve it.

  • Quatermain

    Sorry, my reply was directed @stump, but it got buggered up in the reply ladder thinger.

  • Tinkerville

    Oh for fuck's sake..

  • No, dude. "Look! A Hot Guy" is Dustin's job.

  • John G.

    oh yeah, that's right.

  • True_Blue

    It's Carrie Fisher (not Fischer). Maybe you are thinking of Bobby Fischer?

  • no one

    Wasn't Bobby Fischer originally cast to play Princess Leia, but then he complained about the lightning and stormed out?

  • Snath

    Aidan Turner looks so confused. Like he accidentally sidled up to a beard competition and doesn't quite know what to do, so he just decided to smolder and see if he could get away with it.

  • True_Blue

    I wonder what the beard budget was for the Hobbit.

  • James Cook

    when i first read that i thought it said "i wonder what the beer budget was for the hobbit" okay no more alcohol before 9 am....

  • Drake

    DEAR GOD WHAT IS THAT THING?

  • googergieger

    "Alanis Morissette stepped up in defense of Green Day’s Billie Joe next
    week…and she did it with song. It’s like a delicious 90s ambrosia,
    y’all."

    Man. Isn't it Canadian Ironic.

  • anon

    No matter how hilarious/funny/talented, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are not hot or very attractive or anything like that. Looks-wise, they are very average middle aged women. Please stop pretending/wishing otherwise. I'm not here for T/A pictures (I go to Moe Jackson for that), but I'm tired of rolling my eyes at your posts lately.

  • no one

    You are absolutely right Anon. And I know this is real heresy but I don't think Poehler is funny, cute or adobrable. I find her annoying. Fey however is a comic genius.

  • Jezzer

    You could roll your damn eyes all the way over to another site while you're at it, and maybe stay there.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I'm not putting them up there with a super model, but then Fey's/Poehler's attractiveness is not based solely on looks.

    Smart, funny, independent women = attractive = Tina Fey.

    Tina Fey, in a tight black dress, hair up and makeup = hot. As in, I want to go to there.

  • Obsidiandog

    So your taste in women tends toward middle-aged crones in granny panties.

  • Dave Dorris

    I'd like to STAY there.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Exhibits A and B. Your argument is invalid.

  • True_Blue

    What neighborhood do you live in, where "average middle aged women" look like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I'd say they are above average.

    But you forget - "hot" means something different to the female eye.

    (hey, did I use the female in a good way?)

  • Obsidiandog

    It means they have penises.

  • eeeeeeee

    DEAR GOD WHAT IS THIS POST

    I think you best stay anon. Or go crawl in a hole.

  • anon

    why, is it a crime to say Tina Fey is not "out of my league"? does that make me a bad person if I don't share Joanna and your aesthetic preference?

  • eeeee

    It's fine to express an opinion. Calling for pajiba to stop posting about Tina and Amy is not. You are the one percent. Also a bad person.

  • anon

    I didn't say "stop posting about them". I said "stop pretending [that they are hot/attractive]. You guys are not bitchy, just childish sometimes.

  • Jezzer

    Do you just not get tired of being so horribly wrong all the time?

  • Ginger

    Yeah but that's just, like, your poorly formed and mildly ageist opinion, man.

  • Hawkeye Fierce

    Dude, I believe "troll" is the preferred nomenclature.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I feel like they've replaced the cool, interwoven, celtic-inspired jewelry from The Lord of the Rings with the not so cool, interwoven, celtic-inspired facial hair braids in The Hobbit. No sale, sir, no sale!

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Also, Sherlock was to poop on.

  • fracas

    In the immortal words of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I meant the not Sherlock - the CBS terribleness in the poster above. I am not properly caffeinated.

  • Be sure to hit up the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Regulars have lockers for their steins.

    That Mean Girls video makes me kind of sad. If hanging out with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler couldn't keep Lohan from screwing it all up, nothing could.

  • MikeRoorda

    Before I found out I was a celiac and it was slowly killing me, this was the first place I ever drank a beer and immediately thought "OH MY GOD I WANT MORE RIGHT NOW." I believe I consumed 3 1/2 liters that night, ate my weight in bratwurst and pretzels, chatted up the visiting Italians who were sitting at the table behind us and left with a ceramic AND a glass stein. (I paid for both. They were too big for a five fingered discount.)

    I love that place.
