Tina Fey has admitted that she was once mistaken for a prostitute in a casino in Monaco as part of a ‘True Confessions’ game on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show.

Fey and Amy Poelher appeared on the show to promote their upcoming film Sisters, and engaged in the game of confessions for a segment on the show.

The game saw each contestant have two envelopes in front of them – one containing a true fact, and another containing a lie.

Fallon was grilled over the truth of his story that he was once robbed by a drug dealer with a sawed-off shot gun, while Poehler was questioned over her story that she once helped Yoko Ono cross the street in New York.


Fey eventually admitted that on a trip to Europe with her cousin, the pair had gone to a casino in Monaco thinking it would be a similar affair to those in Atlantic city.

“We went to the casino and thought there were going to be bands playing but it was just ice cold with weird Europeans quietly gambling,” she told the show.

“This older gentleman came over and was like, ‘I would love to buy the two of you dinner in this restaurant here,’ and it was a weird restaurant in the back,” she explained, “and it became clear that the only possible explanation for why we would have been in there is that we were prostitutes.”
