The writer-and-actress confesses she did not take naturally to running in high heel shoes on the set of the action comedy film – which stars Fey and comedian Steve Carrell as a couple trying to enjoy a peaceful night out together – but managed to stay on two legs and did not fall down while shooting.
She said: “I am not great in heels and I was very slow so we had different sizes and it was night time, so if I had to run really fast or climb I had a shorter one with a clear plastic strap on the front but I never fell down.”
The 40-year-old – who won several Emmy awardas for her work on ’30 Rock’ – also admits she would rather be a writer than a film star as being a jobbing actor is “grim”.
She revealed: “I would choose writing because you have more control over the situation. Being an actor for hire is a very grim lifestyle.”
‘Date Night’ is available on DVD and Blu-ray from September 13.
