Tina Fey Defends Working Mom Gwyneth Paltrow

30 Rock star Tina Fey can relate to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, and is protecting her from some internet backlash regarding being a working mother.

“Any time you talk about being a working mother and you complain about it in any way, people eat your face,” Fey tells InStyle.

“I remember reading some interview where Gwyneth Paltrow said something like, ‘I missed my kids on the set one day and I was crying.’ And I thought, Yeah, I’ve totally done that. But on the website where I read it, there were these furious comments. ‘But you’re a movie star!’

“Yes, it’s much worse for a mom serving in Afghanistan. Of course. But there’s just no forgiveness.”

Fey — who is mom to five-year-old daughter Alice with hubby Jeff Richmond — can understand what its like balancing work and family.  She recently said,

“It is less dangerous to draw a cartoon of Allah French-kissing Uncle Sam. . . than it is to speak honestly about [working moms],” she said.

The funnywoman jokingly added how she handles both.

“Sometimes I just hand them a juicy red apple I’ve poisoned in my working-mother witch cauldron and fly away,” she quipped.
