Halloween takes on a decidedly different tone as toddlers turn into preschoolers, and it’s a phenomenon Tina Fey knows all too well. The 30 Rock star said during a Wednesday appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman that daughter Alice Zenobia, 4, has begun to voice an opinion on what she’ll dress up as on October 31st.
Noting that when they’re babies “you can just stuff them in” whatever you want — “You’re going to be a ham sandwich! We’re all going to laugh at you,” Tina quips — not so with Alice this year, who has her costume choices narrowed down to two: a “Barbie butterfly princess” or a “robot that eats bacon.” Tina adds,
“So naturally I’m trying to play it cool…I want her to be a robot that eats bacon but I’m trying not to push it too much. ‘You could eat bacon the whole night!’”
As for Alice’s affection for Barbie, Tina, 39, says that it was recently muddled somewhat by an Internet advertisement.
“I was on my computer and there was a photo ad for The Girls Next Door, about Hugh Hefner and his girlfriends,” Tina recalls. “My daughter came running over and said, ‘Mommy, what are those Barbies? Can I get those?’”
Alice is Tina’s only child with husband Jeff Richmond.
