Besties Tina Fey and Amy Poehler shared some secrets about past acquaintances during a Saturday event for Netflix is a Joke: The Festival.
The “Saturday Night Live” duo played a game during the “In Conversation” panel where they were asked, “Who is the most famous person that has ever hit on you?”
Fey, 51, revealed Kevin Spacey liked her after he hosted the NBC sketch show in 2006.
“That’s the weird thing that used to happen to me. One time when he was hosting ‘SNL’ at the after party, it was getting late and Kevin Spacey was trying to hit on me,” Fey told the audience.
She continued, “I was like, ‘Who is this for? Who is this little performance for?’”
Poehler, 50, joked that the 30 Rock star “really failed.”
The Parks and Recreation actress also claimed that late Republican politician John McCain once tried to approach her.
Spacey, 62, was accused of sexual misconduct by several men in 2017 while the #MeToo movement was at its all-time high.
The two also dropped some juicy gossip for the crowd, with Fey revealing many years ago that she was planning to set Poehler up with actor James Marsden. However, the “Enchanted” star politely declined.
“You were newly single, I knew he was newly single,” Fey noted of Marsden, 48.
The Mean Girls screenwriter continued, “We were at the [Emmys or Golden Globes] and we went to an after party. I got it in my head that I’d set you up with James Marsden. I walked out and I was like, ‘Jimmy, you should come to our after party.’ He was like, “Oh, maybe I will,” and I was like, “No, you should definitely come to our afterparty.” I was drunk.”
Fey added: “In my drunkenness I realized he thinks I want to fuck him and I’m a married woman and he’s a gentleman. It was not me.”
