Tina Fey has revealed that she was once “turned on” by Kevin Spacey during her time as SNL Actor.
That 30 rocks star appeared as part of a stage talk with friend and longtime collaborator Amy Poehler Netflix it’s a joke Comedy Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday (May 7).
As part of the event, the actors randomly selected questions from a bowl to answer for the audience.
The first selected query asked them, “Who is the most random person you meet?”
While Poehler jokingly replied that she was the late politician John McCain, Fey shared the former house of cards Actor Spacey once approached her.
“That’s the weird thing that used to happen to me,” she began. “Once when he was hosting SNLIt was late at the after party and Kevin Spacey was trying to hit on me.”
Spacey, who hosted an episode of the live sketch show in 2006, was accused of sexual misconduct in 2017 amid the rise of the #MeToo movement. Shortly thereafter, he came out as gay.
Fey explained her reaction to Spacey’s alleged interest in her and expressed disbelief in his motives.
“I thought, ‘Who is this for? Who is this little performance for?’” she asked.
Elsewhere in the conversation, Fey referred to the attack on Dave Chappelle that took place days earlier at the same festival.
“We’re not stand-ups. So if you came here tonight to tackle a standup, find someone from Netflix and get your money back,” she noted.
The Independent has reached out to a Kevin Spacey representative for comment.
