But when Us Weekly spoke to the 30 Rock star at the New York screening of her new documentary Shoot Me on Wednesday, she didn't seem fazed by her morning show antics.

"If you got any confidence in yourself, you say what you think is appropriate and press on. Don’t be ridiculous," she continued. "You know it’s like a mystery thing on television right now. Can I say it? Can’t I say it? It’s like you’re waiting for approval from the people with the money."
