Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by Tina Fey?

Wait, what?

Yep, that's right, she may be Hollywoods darling now, but Tina Fey has recently admitted to Net-a-Porter's The Edit that she was a totally Regina George back in high school, saying "I was the mean girl, I admit it openly."


However Fey has a pretty good explanation for her mean girl-esque behavior in high school, putting it all down to teenage insecurity:

That was a disease that had to be conquered. It's another coping mechanism — it's a bad coping mechanism — but when you feel less than (in high school, everyone feels less than everyone else for different reasons), in your mind it's a way of leveling the playing field. Though of course it's not.

Obviously these days Fey has reformed her ways, and the mother of two even had some advice for any mean girls out there:

Saying something terrible about someone else does not actually level the playing field. If I meet a girl of 14 or 15 today who is that kind of girl, I am secretly, in my body, afraid. Even though I'm 45.

Preach, sister.
