Tina Fey recently played VP candidate Sarah Palin on “SNL” – but it actually took her awhile to agree to take the part.
Saying that Palin “seems like a perfectly nice lady,” she said she was very reluctant at first to admit there was a resemblance between them.
“I was very resistant to acknowledge that there was a resemblance,” Fey said.
But, as usual, out of the mouths of babes – it was her 3-year-old daughter Alice who finally made her own up to the resemblance.
“Then my kid saw Sarah Palin on TV and said ‘That’s Mommy.’”
Still, Tina definitely does not want Sarah Palin to become a recurring character on SNL.
“I want to be done playing this lady November 5th,” Fey said when asked backstage about how she feels about the election. “So, if anyone can help me be done playing her on November 5th…”
