Baby Mama, the upcoming movie from Universal Pictures, features Saturday Night Live stars Tina Fey as the driven Kate Holbrook and Amy Poehler as the vibrant Angie Ostrowiski. After Kate discovers she only has a million-to-one chance of getting pregnant, she tries to turn Angie into the perfect surrogate mom.
From movie-making to being a mom--iVillagers submitted the questions they'd been dying to ask Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Get a sneak peak at the movie and see what the stars had to say!
What was it like working together in a movie, versus working together on SNL?
Tina: We had to get up a lot earlier! ...It was such a slower pace than SNL that it was kind of relaxing to play the same character every day...
Amy: It was nice to kind of craft characters that would last longer. We wanted to play characters that were believable... and we didn't have to sit next to each other the whole time!
Tina: There are plusses and minuses to each of them. There's nothing like going to a movie theater and seeing it on a big screen... The thing that's so satisfying about SNL is you can be goofing around on Tuesday and it's on TV on Saturday.
You're both such wonderful comedic actresses, but do you ever see yourself taking on more "serious" dramatic roles?
Tina: (Laughing) I have a one-woman show about Eleanor Roosevelt...
Amy: Every musician wants to be a comedian. Every comedian wants to be a dramatic actor and every dramatic actor wants to be a comedian.
