ET caught up with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd at the premiere of their new film Admission in New York City Tuesday, where the hot topic was of course Taylor Swift's Vanity Fair slam regarding Fey and Amy Poehler's Golden Globes joke aimed at her.
While ET exclusively reported Fey's reaction Tuesday, she also had this to add at the film's NYC premiere.
"It's a shame that she didn't take it in the kind of crazy aunt spirit it was intended," Fey said, after admitting that she was surprised at Swift's harsh reaction.
Rudd also weighed in on the controversy, and showed some sympathy towards Swift.
"I don't know ... it's tough, nobody wants to get their feelings hurt, you know?" he told ET.
As for the film Admission, in which Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer whose world gets turned upside down when college friend (Rudd) introduces her to a student (Nat Wolff) who may or may not be her son, both stars stress that despite their reputations as some of the funniest actors in Hollywood, the film definitely gets serious.
"One of the things I really liked about this movie was that it kind of had its equal parts comedy and drama," Rudd said. "When we were both working on it, we both kind of approached it in the same ways so it wasn't like a chuckle fest or anything, but I mean, we certainly laughed and had a good time."
Check out the video to hear Fey on not actually getting into Princeton when she applied at 17 years old, and Rudd on the latest Anchorman 2 news!
