In the new movie Admission, Tomlin portrays the mother of Tina Fey’s character. In a clip from the movie, she does not seem supportive of her daughter’s relationship and career, in what seems to be a more dramatic turn for the legendary actress.
Tomlin said her character in the movie is a notable feminist who is about her age and wrote a book called The Masculine Myth. She said she could understand how living with misconceptions can strain your relationships.
Admission is in theaters March 22 2013.

Barbara Walters said this is a different, more dramatic role than audiences are used to seeing from Tomlin. She also tried to say that Tomlin plays dramatic in the new Reba McEntire sitcom Malibu Country; Barbara seems consistently off base since her return to the show this week, am I right?
In Malibu Country, Tomlin’s character is a cougar and a pro-marijuana hippie. She said that she got to name the character after her mother, and based some of the character’s personal details on her as well.
She wears a white wig in the TV series. Malibu Country airs Friday nights on ABC.

For 42 years, Tomlin has been with her partner Jane Wagner. At this point, the couple is not really concerned with marriage. Joy Behar, a longtime marriage holdout who eventually gave in, suggested that Tomlin go for it and get married.
“We’d like to, but honestly it’s a lot to plan,” Tomlin said. Isn’t that the truth?
