In the new dramedy Admission, Lily Tomlin is Tina Fey's scene-stealing mother — a faded Gloria Steinem–era radical feminist who allegedly conceived her daughter to prove a political point. Tomlin, a comedy legend, is no stranger to feminist thought, and she was happy to share some of her own with Vulture, weighing in on the eternal "Can women be funny?" debate, high heels, and Girls. Did Admission make you think about the days you were trying to get into college?Yeah, but I never went to that kind of big Ivy League college; I went to a big-city university in Detroit, a more blue-collar kind of college. As long as you could pay your tuition, you just went! It's more democratic. And I never graduated. I got on to the fact that kids were in theater, and I didn't know that was something you could do for a living. »
