Evil would possibly take human shape in Regina George, however a minimum of Tina Fey’s 6-year-old daughter sees one thing aspirational within the on-screen teenager queen.
The author of the 2004 fan favourite stopped via “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Wednesday evening and shed some mild on her two youngsters’s ongoing comedy training. Fey stocks daughters Alice and Penelope with husband and composer Jeff Richmond.
While Fey’s older daughter couldn’t get previous the outlet episodes of “30 Rock” (“It’s just too weird to me”), her more youthful kid instantly took a liking to “Mean Girls.” Fey introduced her youngsters alongside to rehearsals for the impending musical adaptation, which is ready to open on Broadway in March 2018.
But as a substitute of internalizing the teachings discovered from the perils of popularity-seeking prime schoolers, Penelope left with the entire incorrect takeaways.
“She was going back to her preschool being like, ‘Let’s play ‘Mean Girls.’ I’m Regina. I yell at you. I’m a sassy teenager,” Fey advised Meyers.
The “Great News” superstar attempted to remind her daughter that on the tale’s core there’s a good message, but it surely was once already too past due.
“I think that the takeaway is, be very careful about the work you create over the years,” Meyers joked, “because your children will one day take the wrong messages from it.”
