(Newser) – Tina Fey was a virgin until age 24—“couldn’t give it away,” she told David Letterman last night, as the two discussed a tabloid list of celebrities who stayed virgins until, as Fey put it, “they were really old.” Responding to Letterman, who called it “lovely, romantic” that the man Fey eventually gave it away to is her husband, Fey credited herself with “just good, Christian values. Or, being homely.”

“All the other people, that was a choice on their part. That one lady is a Victoria’s Secret model,” Fey said, referring to Adriana Lima. “She made a choice.” Watch the clip at left. (Read more Tina Fey stories.)
