LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Tina Fey lent her voice to the new animated film “Megamind” alongside Brad Pitt, and the comedienne tells Access that working with the two-time “Sexiest Man Alive” winner was a big factor in accepting the voiceover project.
“Yes, that’s how I choose projects, by like, who [my co-stars are],” Tina told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson, at the “Megamind” premiere in New York on Wednesday. “Are they going to be super buff guys? And I don’t care if they are fake, I don’t care if they are character suits. Whatever it takes.”
Tina was very disappointed that physical contact with Brad was not required for the film.
“Usually that is in my contract [for] any movie, no matter what part I’m playing,” Tina jokingly told Shaun. “I really touch people a lot. And somehow that fell through.
“We’re actually in legal. I’m suing them,” Tina joked. “That was not what I bargained for.”
The creator/star of NBC’s award-winning comedy “30 Rock” (and “Saturday Night Live” alum) is preparing for a phone call from “SNL’s” executive producer, Lorne Michaels, in coming months — her spot-on impression of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin may be required if Palin makes a bid for Commander in Chief in 2012.
“That means I might be able to buy a boat in a couple of years!” Tina joked. “No… I wonder… I’ve still got a couple of years rest, right? When is the presidential election? 2012?
“I’ll try to brush up,” she added.
Catch Tina and Brad (along with Will Ferrell) in “Megamind,” when it hits theaters on Friday, November 5.
