Ever since we learned about that ridiculous statement from Taylor Swift, Tina Fey has been getting press for all the wrong reasons. She responded (along with Amy Poehler) when Taylor called her a mean girl in Vanity Fair magazine, but paparazzi continued to hound her about the non-situation. Anyhoo, I was excited to see Tina Fey speaking out about something else; she recently talked about her daughter’s love for Beasts Of The Southern Wild actor Quvenzhané Wallis.

People has the story:
Tina Fey may have given her daughter Alice a cameo on one of the final episodes of 30 Rock, but she has no plans to let her pursue a full-time career in showbiz.
“With my kids, so far it seems to be about me holding them back,” the actress tells PEOPLE Tuesday at a The Moms Mamarazzi screening of Admission in New York City. “They see this exciting life.”
After watching Mom’s stint as Golden Globes co-host alongside best friend Amy Poehler in January, the 7½-year-old became especially enamored with a certain Best Actress nominee.
Alice “lost her mind” over Beast of the Southern Wild‘s Quvenzhane Wallis during an Oscar viewing party at the home of Fey and husband Jeff Richmond.
“There’s a 9-year-old?! There’s a 9-year-old?!” Fey, who is also mom to Penelope, 19 months, recalls her elder daughter shouting.
“Let it go. Step away,” she jokingly responded. “I made her write out a poll so everyone who came to our Oscar party had to [vote] ‘Should Alice be allowed to be in movies?’ And I was the only person that said ‘No.’ I was like ‘Unfortunately for you, I am the only vote that counts.’”
How cute is this? Obviously, I love that little Alice loves Quvenzhané– I mean, who can resist that girl and her adorable puppy purses, lol? But I also love that Tina plans to keep her 7½-year-old out of the biz. Probably a good idea for now.
