    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler revealed some unlikely gossip over the weekend during an "In Conversation" event at Netflix is a Joke: The Festival. According to Yahoo Entertainment, when asked about the "most famous person" to hit on her, Fey offered an unexpected answer — Kevin Spacey.

    "This is the kind of weird thing that used to happen to me," Fey told the crowd. "One time when he was hosting SNL, at the after-party, it was late and Kevin Spacey tried to hit on me. I was like, 'Who is this for? Who is this little performance for?'"

    In response to Fey's revelation, Poehler joked that Fey "really blew it."

    Spacey hosted SNL in 2007, but he's been persona non grata in Hollywood since 2017, when he was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple men. The House of Cards actor came out as gay in the wake of the #MeToo scandal.

    After the moment, Fey and Poehler went on to discuss other intriguing topics, such as Poehler's poorly-executed attempt to set up Fey with actor James Marsden and their thoughts on the recent attack on Dave Chapelle during a stand-up performance.

    "We are not stand-ups so if you came here tonight to tackle a stand-up, find someone from Netflix and get your money back," Fey quipped. "We saw what happened to Chappelle, and I don't care what anyone says, I didn't like it."
