Tina Fey's husband Jeff Richmond recently revealed some informant about the very prominent scar on her face and how the incident occurred. A topic which is very difficult to discuss. In an interview with Vanity Fair Magazine, Richmond said that at the age of five, Tina was in her front yard when a stranger slashed her face.
Richmond said in the interview: "That scar was fascinating to me. This is somebody who, no matter what it was, has gone through something. And I think it really informs the way she thinks about her life."
