Read of the Day: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Take Over Entertainment Weekly
5:30 pm, December 12th | by Colette McIntyre
Fifty Shades of Grey
FEY: I think it needs to be more realistic; I want to see them washing dildos in a dishwasher.
POEHLER: I want to double up on the Ben Wa Balls and maybe pull back on the characters…. How do you not cover it?
FEY: You gotta cover it.
FEY: Let that child be. Leave all the children alone.
POEHLER: Unless they act up, and then bring that child to me, and I’ll put that child over my knee and I will spank that child. Just how we both want it. I want to just give that child what he wants. But I think you gotta cover him! You gotta cover him with a blanket. Everyone needs a nap.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
FEY: You gotta cover them. In every section, because it’s fashion, it’s film, it’s theater! They are an app. They’re everything…. If you look at tabloid magazines, it almost seems like not only are the Kardashians the most important people in the world, they’re the only people. It’s some kind of post-apocalyptic society and only they survived.
POEHLER: Like that movie I Am Legend. I remember I saw I Am Legend that during the writer’s strike, and I had a panic attack and I had to go lie down in the public bathroom because it was a combination of out of work, too much time, movie in the middle of the day and then spoiler alert, Will Smith has to kill his dog and I was like, “Oh f—!” And then I laid down in a New York movie theater bathroom and an old lady came in and she said, “Are you okay?” And I said, “Oh, god! I Am Legend!” So I Am Legend — that’s current, right? We can cover that!
