Tina Fey has opened up about the moment that Kevin Spacey ‘hit on her’ during a Q&A session.

The 30 Rock actress was taking part in an ‘In Conversation’ event as part of the Netflix Is A Joke festival in LA over the weekend, and was joined by close pal Amy Poehler.

In the segment, held at the YouTube Theater on Saturday, they picked audience questions from a bowl and had a chat through them.

Diving right in, the first question posed to the pair was, ‘Who is the most random person to hit on you’.

Parks and Recreation star Poehler joked that John McCain made a move, to which her co-host replied: ‘You’re sort of his type. An Arizona blonde.’

Recalling her own bizarre experience, Fey continued: ‘This is the kind of weird thing that used to happen to me…

‘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?” she asked.

She did not go into further details on the incident, but Spacey hosted SNL twice – once in 1997 and for the second time in 2006.

The former House of Cards actor was accused of sexual harassment and improper behavior by multiple men in 2017.

Following the allegations, which he has refuted, he came out as gay in a lengthy statement in October of that year.

He has kept a low profile since the claims emerged, but was pictured filming in Turin last June, for Italian film L’uomo che disegnò Dio (The Man who drew God).

Elsewhere in the In Conversation session, Fey also reflected on the time she tried to set Poehler up with James Marsden at a drunken afterparty.

‘You were newly single, and I knew he was newly single,’ she told her Mean Girls co-star in front of a packed audience. ‘We were at [an awards ceremony] and we were going to an afterparty. I got it in my head that I was going to set you up.

‘I was walking out, and I was like, “Jimmy you should come to our afterparty.” He was like, “Oh, maybe I will,” and I was like, “No, you should definitely come to our afterparty.”

‘I was drunk. Then he was like, “I’m going to take off.” I realized in my drunkenness that he thinks I was trying to f**k him, and I’m a married lady and he’s a gentleman. I wasn’t.’
