Tina Fey thinks her daughter could be a sociopath

23 August 2013, 13:19

Los Angeles - Tina Fey has joked her two-year-old daughter could be a "sociopath".

The 43-year-old actress has two children, Alice, eight, and Penelope, two, with her husband Jeff Richmond and Tina admitted she was shocked by how different the two girls are, even quipping that Penelope may have a psychopathic personality. 

Speaking to chat show host David Letterman, she said: "I'm stupid! I thought, 'Well, they're both girls. Why are they so different?' They're two different people.

"The little one is such a ... she might be a sociopath.

"I was giving her a bath one night, and she was overtired and I said, 'OK, bath time over'.

"She got real mad that I took her out of the bath... She looked me square in the eyes, and with two tiny little hands, choked me.

"It's so funny because they're not strong enough to kill you. Not yet. Try again in a couple of years, Penelope!"

Tina also revealed a computer filled with her scripts and ideas had been taken from her home and she even aired the security footage showing it being stolen on the show after police failed to recover the property.

She said: "What happened was we have this small office and these movers moved in and they told us we had to go downstairs to sign for it and then I think one of the moving guys went upstairs and stole a computer. And that had all of my ideas on it.

"The police were helpful, but it's hard, New York's a big city and you're like, 'Some guy stole my jokes' and they're like, 'Yeah, we'll get right on it.'"

As the video aired, showing a man with a blurred-out face, she said: ''This is an alleged criminal. He walks out with what pretty much looks like a computer in a folder. Allegedly.''
