Despite graduating to SNL cast member in 2000, she disliked participating in most sketches, finding it difficult to immerse herself in the characters. Despite this, she had some celebrity impressions. Most, if not all of them, were female celebrities who are only famous for being in scandals (Mary Jo Buttafuoco, UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush's daughter, Barbara Pierce, and Kathleen Willey[[note]]one of many women who have claimed they were sexually harassed by UsefulNotes/BillClinton[[/note]]) or were [[BrainlessBeauty brainless beauties]] (Paris Hilton, Vanna White, LindsayLohan's mother, Dina, and Mary Ann Mobley).

*IAmNotPretty: Her looks are often the butt of her own jokes. Fans tend to disagree.

* TakeThat: Annoyed that ''30 Rock'', the big breakthrough of her career, had to share the NBC spotlight with the much more-hyped, much better-funded ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip,'' Fey heaped scorn on the latter show for years. Accepting an award at a fancy celebration, Fey said, "I hear Creator/AaronSorkin is wearing the same dress I am, but it's twice as long and not nearly as funny." To his credit, the famously thin-skinned Sorkin never responded, and even put in a self-deprecatory cameo on ''30 Rock.''

* {{Defictionalization}}: Sarah Palin never actually said "I can see Russia from my house!" (she said Alaskans can see Russia, technically true for the few residents of Little Diomede Island in the Bering Strait), but a lot of people seem to think she did after the MemeticMutation of a line that originated with Fey on SNL.
** Another Palin example: in the SNL episode with John [=McCain=] and Palin (played by Fey), she calls her last-minute "Palin 2012" shirt sale as "going rogue." It's HilariousInHindsight for two reasons: 1) ''Going Rogue'' was the title of her memoir, and 2) She didn't run for President in 2012 (in fact, she dropped out of politics in 2010).



* OneOfUs: A big ''Franchise/StarWars'' fan and once dressed up as Princess Leia on ''30 Rock'', commenting on ''The Graham Norton Show'' in 2015 that doing so is a guaranteed way to attract perverts.

'''Elizabeth Stamatina "Tina" Fey''' (born May 18, 1970) is an American comedy actress and writer of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and ''Series/ThirtyRock'' fame, who seems destined to be remembered as "[[CelebrityResemblance that woman who looks like Sarah Palin]]" (or vice versa). She was also the writer of ''Film/MeanGirls''.

Fey's [[CelebrityResemblance physical resemblance]] to former Republican [=VP=] nominee UsefulNotes/SarahPalin was played with by having Fey make guest appearances on ''[=SNL=]'' as Palin. In the first Fey-as-Palin sketch, Creator/AmyPoehler (as UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton) made reference at one point to her "[[CelebrityParadox Tina Fey glasses]]". It was further played with when Palin herself (who had earlier dressed up as Fey one Halloween) made an appearance on the show with Fey, both wearing the same outfit. And an incident where show host Alec Baldwin started bad-mouthing Sarah Palin because he thought he was talking to Tina Fey... only to be told by Palin herself that he was [[YourCostumeNeedsWork actually talking to Palin]].

** He never seemed to take her ribbing personally, apparently he even sent her flowers the night that ''30 Rock'' first went to air.

* TwerpSweating: Her father is a former U.S. Army codebreaker, has a face like Creator/ClintEastwood, and apparently scares other men shitless -- even Lorne Michaels and Alec Baldwin, two men not known for their timidity. Don Fey serves as a notice that his daughter won't tolerate lazy or stupid men in her life.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Bizarrely, she turns up RAPPING in the song "Real Estate" by ChildishGambino. Donald Glover was one of the writers on ''30 Rock'', but that doesn't really make it much less unlikely.
